Successful operations and maintenance of separate and combined sewer collection systems is a complex challenge. Our comprehensive services help you plan, build and maintain wastewater collection systems with pumping stations, force mains and interceptor sewers that will keep you in compliance with changing regulations, protect resources and meet the needs of your community.

A significant part of the municipal challenge is the age of critical water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure. Our experience in urban development gives us the ability to identify and assess the existing infrastructure, then evaluate it in the context of your master plan. This helps prioritize what your system needs now and into the future, putting the right pipe in at the right time in the right location, weighing the priorities of cost-effectiveness and required capacity.

Our technological tools include computer hydraulic models of sewer systems integrated with GIS to analyze sewer system performance and evaluate the cost-effectiveness of alternate strategies for compliance with combined sewer and separate sanitary sewer overflow regulations. For collection system design, our experienced engineers work with our field teams to evaluate and interpret collected data. We help you develop a watershed plan to address potential regulatory requirements as well as identify and prioritize needed system improvements, helping you efficiently allocate your ratepayers’ resources.

Upon completion of evaluations and planning stages, we help you develop cost-effective system designs. Our sewer improvements experience includes sewer rehabilitation, pump stations, relief sewer design, private inflow removal and above/below ground wet weather storage systems. When construction begins, we provide proven field construction staff to help verify that your identified solutions are built within budget and on schedule.
