City Engineer presents the City of Galveston Infrastructure Highlights

City Engineer Daniel Christodoss on Wednesday presented the City of Galveston Infrastructure Highlights to Regional Engineering Professionals at the 2018 Annual CIP Briefing in Houston.

Dr. Christodoss presented the City of Galveston’s significant contributions to advancing our critical infrastructure through strategic planning initiatives that have benefited the City and the entire Houston-Galveston region.  

One of the key topics presented by the City included conceptual designs for future stormwater pump stations to improve drainage, advances made and ongoing designs by the City to improve transportation, water distribution, and wastewater collection and treatment using renewable energy initiatives at the new $80 Million Main Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The $10 Million Causeway Water Supply and the $18 Million 24 inch Airport Water Transmission Lines currently in design that will provide redundancy to the entire Island were also highlighted during the presentation.

This meeting was sponsored by the Houston-Galveston American Public Works Association (APWA) and Society of American Military Engineers (SAME).   Both SAME and APWA are non-profit professional engineering educational organizations that promote the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.  

The goal of this meeting was to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction fields to prepare for and overcome natural and man-made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.
