Recognize Innovation and Forward-thinking by Voting for the Beaver Creek CSO Abatement and Flood Mitigation Program in the “Smart Water” Category

The City of Albany’s Beaver Creek CSO Abatement and Flood Mitigation Program is a finalist in the 2019 IDC Smart Cities North America Awards (SCNNA) in the Smart Water category. The SCNAA recognizes municipalities from across the country for executing Smart City projects to reach sustainability goals, create new economic opportunities, and meet the growing needs of their communities. The public can now vote for a winner in each of 12 categories at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/IDCSCNA-2019Finalists.

The Beaver Creek CSO Abatement and Flood Mitigation Program is a progressive approach that merges innovative technology with traditional grey strategies and green infrastructure practices into a cutting-edge solution for urban stormwater management. At the heart of the solution is the implementation of a smart infrastructure network that uses a continuous monitoring and adaptive control platform to proactively predict and manage wet weather flows. As the City of Albany continues to expand its smart infrastructure network, future CSO abatement/flood mitigation projects will be included in the program.
