Dr. Paul Rizzo among ENR magazine Top 25 Newsmakers for 2010

Paul C. Rizzo Associates Inc. has announced that Dr. Paul Rizzo has been named one of Engineering News-Record magazine’s Top 25 Newsmakers for 2010.

Selected annually by ENR editors, the Newsmakers are chosen for their innovations and achievements, for giving back to the industry and the public and for going beyond the duties of their day-to-day jobs, a press release states.

When the Taum Sauk Upper Reservoir failed in 2005, the project owner Ameren Missouri selected Dr. Rizzo as the engineer-of-record and primary failure investigator for the rebuild project. Paul C. Rizzo Associates, along with Ozark Constructors and Ameren Missouri, rebuilt the Upper Reservoir utilizing roller compacted concrete. Taum Sauk is currently the largest RCC dam in the Western Hemisphere.

All 25 Newsmakers will be honored at a black-tie gala in New York City on April 7, where the winner of ENR’s highest honor, the Award of Excellence, will be announced. The winner will be the subject of a cover story in the April 11 issue of the magazine.
