Next Luncheon Meeting

SAEMS holds monthly luncheon meetings the last Wednesday of every month featuring speakers on a wide range of environmental topics.

Join us for this educational talk and network with other attendees.


Thursday March 1, 2018 (Note different day of week!)

Joint Meeting with AZWater, APWA-SAB, and ASCE!


Mr. John Take, Stantec Consulting Services

Permanent Canal Closures and Pump Project, New Orleans, Louisiana. The project facilities form one of the largest drainage pumping systems in the world and can operate continuously and independently during major hurricane events. The City of New Orleans was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. In response, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers embarked on the $14.6 billion Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction system to repair the damage and improve resiliency for the city and surrounding communities. The final piece is the $690 million Permanent Canal Closures and Pumps design-build project with Stantec as the lead design engineer and architect.


Hotel Tucson City Center, 475 North Granada Avenue, Tucson AZ 85701
