OBG also received the NYSAWWA Rehabilitation Project of the Year award for the company's work with Ithaca, NY to update the city's water supply infrastructure. The award was presented during the conference’s Awards Breakfast on April 11, 2018. 

This water supply project represents the cornerstone to the largest public-works undertaking in Ithaca’s history. Major renovations to the city’s water supply infrastructure have allowed for the safe delivery of up to 6 million gallons of water a day to 30,000 customers in the service area, while saving energy.
