Geosynthetics magazine received a second-place Silver Award for Best Technical Article at the 2009 Minnesota Magazine & Publications Association’s annual awards event Nov. 5 in Minneapolis. It marked the fifth consecutive year that Geosynthetics has won an MMPA award.
The cover story, “Pyrite remediation: Geosynthetic answers for I-99’s problems” was written by Archie Filshill of CETCO Contracting Services. It was edited by Ron Bygness and designed by Heidi Hanson, both with Geosynthetics.
The article, which ran in the April/May 2009 issue, described how a host of geosynthetic materials were used to address iron pyrite issues during construction on Interstate-99 in Centre County, Pennsylvania.
The seven magazines published by the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) won six awards at the MMPA event.
