Wastewater Treatment Plants

Wastewater utilities not only face ongoing compliance challenges, but they increasingly must upgrade treatment facilities to meet environmental and community impact goals, reduce energy use, and achieve financial sustainability. Our team develops optimal solutions to meet the individual needs, constraints, and resources – ensuring investments in treatment upgrades return the best value to the utility and stakeholders.

Our Expertise

We’ve planned, designed, managed construction of, and brought online more than 120 wastewater treatment plants, with capacities ranging from .01 to 100 million gallons per day. This experience is only part of the value we bring. We employ the latest technologies – biological nutrient removal processes, membranes, and toxics control – to tailor the best solutions to site-specific conditions. We help you maintain rates and minimize operating costs through efficient operation and management and achieve compliance through first-hand experience applying process controls. Our wastewater professionals are on-call to assist with local emergency operations or perform critical troubleshooting.

Specialized Services

  • Nutrient Reduction Removal

    Nutrient Reduction Removal

    Our nutrient reduction programs produce innovative projects, permitting and regulatory strategies, and nutrient trading. Our process design engineers are industry leaders in nitrogen removal, especially in the use of biological nitrogen removal, a multi-staged process that converts ammonia to free nitrogen gas.
  • BIM

    Building Information Modeling (BIM)

    With BIM, we can design and document a project throughout its life cycle, enabling us to implement energy-saving designs, constructability, and construction sequencing, as well as maintain operations for existing facilities during construction. BIM visualization also improves project understanding and communications throughout the design process. Visualizing spaces and equipment while moving through a facility allows the end user to truly understand the facility they are developing. Read more about BIM.
  • Operations & Management

    Operations & Management

    Sound operations and management processes are essential to achieve system reliability, control costs, save energy, and yield full equipment life. We look for strategic ways to improve O&M function in support of a facility's mission and provide staffing support at any phase of execution. This allows us to recommend solutions and help you carry out those improvements.
  • Instrumentation & Controls SCADA

    Instrumentation & Controls SCADA

    Well-designed and maintained SCADA systems are essential to successfully automate facilities and manage system performance. We’ve completed SCADA projects ranging from small systems with a few sites monitoring a couple hundred points, to large systems with more than 50 sites monitoring thousands of points. Our efforts include design, programming, commissioning, and training. Read more about Technology/Communications.
