“The project was completed ahead of schedule and to this day, there have been minimal issues. To me, this means [the construction supervisor] made sure the project was built per design and as if it was to be his own. [The project manager and construction supervisor] were instrumental in providing the City of Dodge City a Wastewater Recycling Plant that will serve the community for years to come and conserve a precious resource for the City.”
