The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) awarded the OARS – OSIS Augmentation & Relief Sewer project with an Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement (OCEA) Award of Merit. OARS was among five national finalist honored at the prestigious Outstanding Projects and Leaders Gala on March 14 in Arlington, VA.
The $370 million project is a 20-foot diameter, 23,300-foot long tunnel that provides wet weather relief to the existing OSIS sewer, the main combined sewer through downtown Columbus, Ohio.
ASCE annually recognizes an exemplary project that best illustrates superior civil engineering skills and represents a significant contribution to civil engineering progress and society. Honoring an overall project rather than an individual, the award celebrates the contributions of many engineers.
