LEWISTON — Lewiston Public Works and Public Services were recognized on June 4 with a first-place excellence award by the Maine Chapter of the American Public Works Association for the Water Street Combined Sewer Overflow Storage Facility project. 
The departments were also recognized with a third-place excellence award for the Old Greene Road – No Name Pond Road Rehabilitation Project 2008.
When notifying the city of the recognition, Craig Worth, representative of the Institute of Municipal Engineers, a branch of the association’s Maine chapter, touted both projects as “exceptional.”
Reflecting on the two-tier recognition, Public Works Director Paul Boudreau said, “The awards received are a true testament to the outstanding work that our employees provide on a daily basis.”
The award recognizes projects exemplifying quality, innovation, value and community satisfaction.  Since 1997, Lewiston Public Works and Lewiston Public Services have been the recipient of eight Maine chapter awards for excellence.
Boudreau said, “With ever-rising costs and limited funds, innovative solutions are imperative in meeting unfunded federal CSO mandates, and we’re very proud of the cost-saving planning and design that was developed for this project.”
