In-Person Meeting


Program: Soil Mix & Deep Foundation Sand Island WWTP Secondary Treatment Phase

The technical presentation will provide a brief update of the Sand Island WWTP Secondary Treatment Phase 1 project. We will discuss in depth the design options that were explored for soil stabilization and deep foundations on this project. The team will provide details on the test program, mix design composition, equipment and installation for the final design selected.

After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor's degree in civil and environmental engineering, she joined Hensel Phelp's Mid-Atlantic Region before transferring to the Pacific Region in 2016. Since joining the Pacific Region, Allie has overseen the day-to-day operations of ENV projects for the City and County of Honolulu at the Kaneohe Tunnel Influent Facility, Kailua RWWTP, Waianae WWTP and Sand Island WWTP. With her experience on these projects she actively assists Hensel Phelps' Estimating Department with wastewater project pursuits.

ASCE has launched a COVID-19 resources page with online tools and tips in one convenient place. The page includes links to free programs, training, and resources, the results of COVID-19 industry impact surveys, and relevant online discussions with fellow members. The page also offers several ways to work more effectively while at home and activities to take advantage of in the down time you may have – even fun things to do with the keiki! And don’t forget that all members have 10 free PDHs! Now may be a good time to catch up on some of those technical on-demand webinars.
