Sunrise Engineering Celebrates Most Outstanding Municipal/Utility Project Award for Heber City Water/Sewer Replacement

In a momentous triumph for both Sunrise Engineering and the Heber City community, the Utah Construction and Design magazine recently honored the Heber City Water/Sewer Replacement Phase IA project with the prestigious title of Most Outstanding Municipal/Utility Project of 2023. This $12 million Phase I initiative, a crucial component of a comprehensive three-phase program spanning 60 city blocks, stands as a testament to the commitment to excellence exhibited by both Sunrise Engineering and their valued partners, BHI.

The Heber City Water/Sewer Replacement Project:

The Heber City Water/Sewer Replacement Phase IA project tackled the vital task of rejuvenating aging water and sewer systems, while also introducing a new pressurized irrigation system targeted at the City’s older east side. The scope of the project was extensive, involving the replacement of 29,000 linear feet of sewer main, 33,000 linear feet of Culinary Water mains, and the implementation of 33,000 linear feet of new pressurized irrigation lines.

Aside from the substantial utility upgrades, the project also encompassed a comprehensive approach to city infrastructure. Road reconstruction, fresh pavement, and enhancements to sidewalks, curbs, and gutters were integral components of the project, highlighting the thoroughness and attention to detail that defined the endeavor.

Collaboration and Expertise:

The success of the Heber City Water/Sewer Replacement Project can be attributed to the seamless collaboration between Sunrise Engineering and BHI. Sunrise Engineering, serving as the civil engineering firm, partnered with BHI as the contractor to ensure that the project met the highest standards of quality and efficiency.

Notably, BHI engaged with the Sunrise Engineering team at the 30% design mark of Phases IA and IA2. This early involvement allowed them to align with the owner and engineer for final design considerations, providing valuable input during the preconstruction phase. This collaborative effort played a pivotal role in the project’s success, emphasizing the importance of effective teamwork in the realm of municipal engineering.

Recognition and Accolades:

The Utah Construction and Design magazine’s recognition of the Heber City Water/Sewer Replacement Phase IA project as the Most Outstanding Municipal/Utility Project of 2023 is a testament to the dedication and expertise demonstrated by Sunrise Engineering and its partners. This achievement reflects not only the technical proficiency of the team but also their commitment to enhancing the quality of life for the residents of Heber City.


Sunrise Engineering takes pride in contributing to the success of the Heber City Water/Sewer Replacement Phase IA project. This recognition serves as a reminder of the positive impact that well-executed engineering projects can have on communities. As we celebrate this achievement, Sunrise Engineering looks forward to continuing its commitment to excellence in future endeavors that shape and uplift the communities we serve.
