(LAN), and Harper Brothers Construction, LLC (HBC) have received the Texas Chapter of the American Public Works Association (TX-APWA) 2023 Project of the Year Award for Environment, $25M-$75M category, for the SWTP 72-inch Water Line from Emancipation to Tuam. The award will be presented at the Waco Convention Center during this year’s Mammoth TX-APWA Public Works Conference and Exhibition on Wednesday, June 28.
