- Prepare floodplain studies and floodplain mapping.
- Local Governments require either Location and Extent Drawings or Site Development Plans for almost any facility that you construct these days. These drawings provide great detail on the development of designs, utility plans, landscape plans, drainage plans, and erosion control plans. The process usually includes a public hearing with the planning commission or sometimes with the County Commission or City Council.
- Provide technical support for projects including planning, design, or construction management. Our specialties include water resources, drainage and flood control, roadway design, development engineering, and local government processing.
- Develop mapping that provides specific dimensions to aid operations staff in locating the District’s facilities.
- Develop hydraulic pipeline models for water and wastewater systems. Determine flow rates, capacities and operating pressures, and project future water use and system capabilities.
- Wherever water rights allow, develop plans for recapture, reuse, and augmentation of existing supplies.
Engineering Planning & Design
- We provide Infrastructure Planning for new and existing districts.
- Identify specific easements and ownerships. Meet with owners, develop legal terms of easement agreements, and acquire easements.
- Compare district pumping or flow deliveries and billing delivery records with flows measured in the interceptor sewers or at the wastewater plant. Conduct analysis of system to identify sources of infiltration and inflow, and develop a plan to reduce or eliminate these sources.
- Assistance in solving problems, obtaining approvals, and working with local governments.
- Prepare plans to handle and improve storm drainage systems; design and implement the improvements.
- Collect and document historical wastewater flows and per capita measures, project future development and wastewater flows and compare with treatment and pipeline capacity.
- Develop targets for demand reduction and formulate a plan to reduce use and promote reuse.
- Collect and document your historical water use and daily use per customer, project future development and water use, and compare with treatment or pipeline capacity.
- Review water rights and ways to utilize these within the District system. Assist in legal processing of water rights and in implementation of their use.
