Roane project up for kudos

-A A +A

Roane County’s Paw Paw Creek mitigation, completed by S&ME Inc., is among five Knoxville area projects nominated for the American Council of Engineering Companies of Tennessee’s 2014 Tennessee Engineering Excellence Awards.

The award, one of the highest honors a project team can receive, is considered the “Academy Awards of the engineering industry.”

S&ME provided compensatory mitigation services for the area of Paw Paw Creek to compensate for environmental impacts on the area.

The work included restoring 3,800 feet of Paw Paw Creek and an adjacent tributary, along with 10 acres of wetlands within its watershed.

The Roane County project is among 22 nominated statewide for the honor, which will be presented March 11 in Nashville.
