Michael Baker International Honored with MAPPS 2020 Geospatial Products & Services Excellence Award for PWSA Curb Box Inspection Program

Project selected in the Surveying/Field Data Collection Category

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 12, 2021 — (PRNewswire) — Michael Baker International, a global leader in engineering, planning and consulting services, announced today that the firm has been honored by MAPPS, the preeminent national association of private sector firms in the geospatial profession, with a 2020 Geospatial Products & Services Excellence Award for its work on the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) Curb Box Inspection Program. The Geospatial Excellence Awards are presented to MAPPS member firms whose project entries exemplify the professionalism, value, integrity and achievement of the firm's staff as demonstrated over the previous year. Michael Baker International was honored in the Surveying/Field Data Collection Category.

The winning project supported the PWSA's Lead Service Line Identification Program, which provided needed data in efforts to replace all the authority's lead services lines. Michael Baker developed an innovative program to inspect 15,000 curb-boxes in 12-months to identify service lines that may contribute to elevated lead/copper levels in water. Leveraging survey crews, photo inspections and web-enabled GIS, the firm located and catalogued lead lines to assist in preparing a water service line inventory.

"Michael Baker has been headquartered in the Pittsburgh area for more than 80 years and has served as a long-standing partner to PWSA for more than 30 years," said Beth Larkin, Senior Vice President and Pittsburgh Office Executive at Michael Baker International. "Our firm is deeply ingrained in the city, making us especially familiar with the intricacies of this complex inspection program. This has led to the collection of more accurate and updated inspection data, which ultimately contributes to safer and cleaner drinking water for residents in the communities in which we live and work."
