Open for Renovation August 01, By Lisa Harrington No tags available Retailers are deploying a number of survival strategies and tactics to cope with the U.
Beginning in the s, however, water was diverted from its natural flow into and through the Everglades for flood control, agricultural, and habitation purposes. Headed by the U. Army Corp of Engineers and its non-federal lead sponsor, the South Florida Water Management District, the overall program involves, as much as possible, restoring habitats and natural flowways, improving water quality, and ensuring clean and reliable water supplies for both human and natural environments.
The scope of work included developing plans for monitoring and assessment of all CERP projects, project controls, meeting logistics support, design support, construction administration, technical writing and publication support, and management of a small-business subcontracting plan.
Due to the great uncertainty regarding how the planned projects could restore Everglades ecosystem ecological functions, the U. Adaptive management is substantially different from traditional project management approaches.
Atkins took the leadership role in developing a project implementation plan and master implementation sequencing plan, as well as preparing guidance for project managers. These innovative tools proved essential for critical scheduling and processing needed for project completion.
Once complete, the restoration of the Everglades will improve 2. It is also the site of the Battle of San Jacinto, the decisive victory that won Texas independence from Mexico in The marsh is part of the larger San Jacinto Battleground complex, which is a designated National Historic Landmark that receives an estimatedvisitors annually.
One of the few functioning tidal wetlands among this industry-heavy area of Houston, San Jacinto has faced a barrage of modern-day battles associated with coastal erosion and sinking land surfaces.
The marsh scored a big win by being selected as the recipient site for beneficially-used dredge material from a nearby dock expansion project at the Barbours Cut Terminal deepwater port. In turn, the community also reaped the benefit of the dock expansion, which was slated to provide additional jobs and revenue to the region.
We served as the dredging engineer of record and our team successfully designed and completed the project within an accelerated schedule of 20 months, transportingcubic yards of dredged material nearly 10 miles from Barbours Cut to San Jacinto Marsh.
The dredge fill helped restore acres of intertidal marsh habitat, to mimic the conditions of the battlefield in By restoring the marsh to its historically-accurate condition, an intertidal habitat was created that promotes growth of native marsh grasses and withstands varying water elevations and salinity levels.
To ensure the dredged sediment consolidates successfully with existing material at San Jacinto, we will monitor the restoration site for two years.
We were hired to create a GIS database populated with maps, element assessment, and associated information about the utility systems to address this need. Systems included in the project were potable water, irrigation water to vacuum breakerssanitary sewer, storm water, electrical, gas, and utility tunnels.
We then populated the database with a full utility assessment including remaining service life—allowing us to estimate the cost of asset replacement.
A summary report and maps to assist in capital planning were the final components of the project, but our goal was to support future potential.
The GIS model is a living database—allowing for each institution to upgrade the quality and depth of information contained in the database over time. Ultimately, the State of Utah could use the tool for much more than capital planning.
Potential applications include predictive system modeling, design support, maintenance operations, master planning, utility optimizations, and integration into the curriculum. Key utility data sets developed included: As predetermined campus geographic work areas were finished, we provided the new GIS model to aid our survey teams with field investigations, supplementing the data with record drawing reviews to verify subsurface utility engineering SUE locations and capture related utility information.
Upon completion of the field investigations, we integrated the survey data with the GIS database to produce a campus-wide utility GIS. Finally, we provided LSU with three days of instructor-led training, focusing on the elements of the model, workflows to maintain the database, and administration of the GIS system.
Since the WSSC has called on our expertise to make significant changes and improvements to the plant. The original biological nutrient removal BNR project incorporated new and expanded facilities, from preliminary treatment through tertiary filtration.
The enhanced nutrient removal ENR upgrade and expansion project pushed the limits of current standards in wastewater engineering—allowing us to create a cutting-edge design that could be retrofitted into the existing plant while keeping it fully operational.
The design innovations vital to this project will ensure wastewater is treated responsibly, efficiently and safely—protecting the environment, conforming to State legislation, preserving the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and providing for the growing community of Montgomery County.
The ENR project began construction in September and was completed in the fall of These systems discharge tons of nitrogen into the ground year-after-year. The community is under a state order to remove septic tanks by to protect groundwater.
To address this problem, the Hi-Desert Water District utilized our engineering services to design a brand-new wastewater collection and treatment system. This project is the first of three phases to convert the existing septic systems to a public sewer system—protecting groundwater and allowing the Yucca Valley community to grow.
The first step will convert approximately 5, properties necessitating 77 miles of sewer mains and three sewer pump stations. At the beginning of the design process, we reviewed all planning assumptions and flow projections, and developed a comprehensive model of the future collection system to meet the needs of Yucca Valley.
The design team focused on reviewing design criteria, evaluating existing water use, and determining when buildout of the community would occur.limited brands consolidates its supply chain management prepared by: karan 2.

Anyone buying a product at one of the more than 40 “Brand Pop-Ups” will be able to send their purchases home free of charge via the DHL Service Point (District 2, Stand 03), leaving them free to enjoy the event without the hassle of carrying bags.
Two years earlier, Marquise had consolidated its supply chain operations by outsourcing all its product lines to the supply chain city. In doing so, Marquise had shrunk the time from fashion design to products’ arrival in its retail stores from 50 weeks to 60 days, boosting its bottom line by 20%.
