Yukon Engineering Excellence Award for Morrison Hershfield

Morrison Hershfield recently received the 2017 Yukon Engineering Excellence Award recognizing the Mayo River Flood Control Project for Excellence in Engineering.

The Mayo River Flood Control Project has significantly contributed to protecting the Village of Mayo against adverse effects related to winter flooding on the River, according to the Morrison’s announcement.

It has provided future recreational opportunities near the lower Mayo River, allowing access to this natural area for residents.

Given the complexity of the issue and high degree of uncertainty, Morrison Hershfield identified a series of measures that could be implemented incrementally. These measures included:

  • Develop and implement a winter operation protocol;
  • Increase hydraulic capacity of Mayo River;
  • Provide bank stabilization;
  • Permanently establish diversion channels.

The Yukon Engineering Excellence Award is presented to projects that are sustainable, considerate of the environment, serve the community and demonstrate how engineering can enhance quality of life for communities.

The project demonstrates applied research, design, innovation, construction and project management approach that represents a truly “unique Yukon and Northern solution” to a difficult challenge for the government of Yukon.
