Ecology and Environment Receives ACEC's Prestigious Diamond Award for 
Engineering Excellence in Water Resources 
LANCASTER, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 --  Ecology and
Environment Engineering, P.C. (E & E) (NASDAQ: EEI) has been awarded
the American Council of Engineering Companies' (ACEC's) prestigious
Diamond Award in the water resources category for the firm's
pioneering work on the Town of Carroll Groundwater Treatment System
for Frewsburg Water District (FWD) public water supply well. 
Diamond Awards honor the work of ACEC New York member engineering
firms for exceptional projects, both within New York State and around
the world. Projects are judged on complexity, future value to the
engineering profession, original or innovative application of new or
existing technologies, and meeting or exceeding client needs. 
The Town of Carroll project was the first of its kind for the New
York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). The
project focused on remediating the groundwater migrating from the old
landfill and providing public drinking water. The Chautauqua County
Department of Health (CCDOH) had required the FWD to discontinue the
use of their Public Well Number 5 (PW-5) because the well was drawing
water that was part of the contaminated plume from the old Carroll
Town Landfill site. The Record of Decision for the Carroll Town
Landfill site required the treatment of the groundwater contamination
plume. NYSDEC tasked E & E with designing a treatment system at PW-5
and using it as the extraction well. The design needed to meet the
drinking water standards of the New York State Department of Health
and CCDOH so that the well could be made available to the FWD again.
Frewsburg had tried to locate another well within their village but
could not find a suitable location with sufficient flow to meet the
system demands.  
The system as designed removes the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
to meet drinking water standards and then performs standard NYSDOH
required bacterial treatment of the water. All water is tested and
certified in accordance with NYSDOH standards before it is pumped
into the water system for the village of Frewsburg. The treatment
plant is also designed to discharge water, after the VOCs are
removed, to the Conewango Creek when the FWD system demands do not
need water from this well.  
Headquartered in Lancaster, N.Y., E & E has completed more than
50,000 projects for a wide variety of clients in 122 countries,
including some of the most iconic, high-profile projects in the
world. Since 1970, E & E has provided environmental solutions in
nearly every ecosystem on the planet. E & E is listed on the NASDAQ
under the symbol EEI, and the information contained in this press
