Engineers

We admit the wastewater package systems industry is not engineer friendly.  Our background as design and utility consultants taught us that the key to successful projects is close communication between the Owner, Operator, Contractor, Engineer of Record, and the system designer.

We learned a long time ago that Engineers do not like proprietary systems or "black boxes."  The idea that water goes in dirty and comes out clean without any byproduct or energy input sounds ridiculous.  The internet is full of examples of this, and it is good to be skeptical of some of these designs.

We promise full transparency with our systems.  As the Engineer you should be fully aware of what is going on in the process.  You set the performance expectation and provide knowledge of water treatment so your client knows the system will work as intended.

In turn, we need the Engineer to take care of a few things:

 

  • Visit the site and understand site-specific constraints;

  • Layout, specify, design non-ITS infrastructure;

  • Coordinate with the Owner, Contract, and ITS all of the site-specific items such as power requirements, external communications protocols, and O&M needs;

  • Identify the influent wasteload constituents;

  • Establish reasonable flow parameters for the system (including daily diurnal patterns if possible);

  • Negotiate appropriate effluent target requirements;

  • Scope and select the appropriate process to meet the treatment objectives;

  • Assist with equipment selection and control parameters of the system;

  • Sign and seal the drawing set;

  • Coordinate permit approvals with the appropriate jurisdictional authorities.

 

We are engineers too and we know what it takes to deliver a successful project.  We are looking forward to helping you save time and money on your client's small treatment system.
