IMEG client named Water System of the Year



The City of Hamilton, Ill. – an IMEG client – recently received the 2018 Water System of the Year award from the Illinois Rural Water Association (IRWA). The award is given for meeting the strictest industry standards in appearance, record keeping, compliance and consistency of operations.


IMEG staff at the firm’s Macomb and Ottawa (Ill.) offices provided civil engineering design, bidding and construction services for several major water system-related projects in Hamilton over the past several years. These projects feature an $800,000 Route 136 watermain replacement in 2000; a $2 million water treatment plant replacement (2001-2006), and a $400,000 watermain replacement project in 2017 that also corrected IEPA water/sewer separation violations.


“IMEG has played a big part in the award we have received,” said Aron Metternich, Superintendent of Hamilton’s Water and Sewer Department. “We’re appreciative for all they have done for our community.”
