The Texas Chapter of the American Public Works Association (Tx-APWA) has awarded Houston Public Works, Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam Inc. (LAN), and Harper Brothers Construction the Project of the Year Award for Environments over $75M for the Northeast Transmission Line (NETL) program. The award was presented on June 4 at the annual Tx-APWA Conference in San Antonio, Texas.

The NETL, the city’s largest water transmission project to date, will deliver 340 million gallons per day (MGD) of treated surface water from the expanded Northeast Water Purification Plant (NEWPP) through 16.5 miles of 120-inch and 108-inch steel water lines. This monumental project aligns with Houston Public Works’ goals to reduce groundwater pumping, enhance water supply reliability and meet the projected 2040 water demand, benefiting over 900,000 homes in Harris County. LAN served as the program manager for the entire alignment of NETL and designed three segments.
