Robust wastewater collection and treatment infrastructure protects both community health and the local environment. Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTWs) across the U.S. process approximately 34 billion gallons of wastewater each day. As populations in urban and semi-urban areas surge, the increased effluent volumes often stretch aging wastewater treatment plants beyond capacity, leaving municipalities in urgent need of wastewater engineering solutions.
Fehr Graham’s diverse team of licensed process engineers and wastewater operators work with communities to address the challenges of effectively running, maintaining and upgrading wastewater treatment plants. Our expertise in wastewater engineering services has helped municipalities evaluate plans and design solutions that maintain the fine balance between preserving natural resources and benefiting communities.
Our wastewater engineering services
In wastewater engineering, no two projects are alike, and one solution does not fit all. We understand the need for customized solutions to address uniquely challenging wastewater management projects. Fehr Graham’s extensive experience providing end-to-end wastewater engineering services has guided municipalities to successful outcomes. Our wastewater engineering services include:
Collection System Design/Rehabilitation
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System
Communities who have benefited from our wastewater engineering services
At Fehr Graham, our passion for creating healthy and sustainable communities drives us to design insightful, results-driven and cost-effective wastewater management solutions. We have been helping municipal leaders transform local POTWs into energy-efficient systems since the 1970s. Some of the wastewater engineering projects we’ve helped communities complete are:
Our knowledge of Iowa design standards, permitting processes and funding requirements helped the City of Coggon, Iowa, secure funds to design and plan much-needed upgrades on its wastewater treatment plant.
We provided construction, engineering and loan administration services to fund and build a new wastewater treatment facility in Illinois and decommission the 80-year-old Morrison Wastewater Treatment Facility.
Fehr Graham helped the City of Monticello, Illinois, consolidate previous planning efforts to update its wastewater treatment plant, analyze multiple processes and solid treatment options and secure financing for the most cost-effective solution.
We prepared a facility plan for the City of Winthrop, Iowa, outlining upgrade options to meet ammonia and E.coli limits. Fehr Graham also provided design and construction engineering services for recommended improvements, including lagoon upgrades.
How can we help you?
Fehr Graham’s wastewater engineering services ensure that your community’s wastewater treatment plant upgrade is environmentally compliant while also adhering to the project’s scope, schedule and budget goals. Our proactive approach to wastewater engineering not only addresses current challenges but helps municipalities design contingency plans for the future.
