Water & Wastewater Solutions
For more than a century, Tighe & Bond has provided numerous communities – as well as district and private water companies – with comprehensive engineering services to ensure that residents have an adequate supply of quality drinking water.
We assess existing water supplies with hydrogeologic or hydrologic studies, as well as water rate and cost of service studies. We plan, permit and design treatment, storage and distribution systems. Conducting pilot plant treatability studies, we determine system effectiveness for new supplies and existing supplies that can be improved through the use of new water treatment technologies. Tighe & Bond also assists cities and towns by negotiating water treatment or purchase agreements with other communities, assisting with permitting, researching and accessing all available funding opportunities.
Our experience spans the full range of services required by a water supplier including: water system planning and modeling, groundwater exploration and development, surface water reservoirs and dam construction, distribution system improvements (including water mains, pumping stations and storage facilities), as well as groundwater and surface water treatment facilities and automation and control of waterworks facilities.
Tighe & Bond plans, permits, and designs efficient, cost-effective wastewater treatment systems to help municipal, institutional and industrial clients achieve compliance with federal, state and local regulations. Our projects range from small industrial pretreatment systems to large municipal treatment facilities. For many cities and towns, we have prepared detailed facilities plans and permit applications, assisted in obtaining funding, completed detailed design of collection, pumping and treatment facilities, and provided construction oversight and startup services. Our firm designs and builds turnkey systems, and provides consulting services which include plans and specifications, bidding and construction supervision, startup oversight, operator training and permitting.
Our firm’s water pollution control experience also includes sewer system evaluations, collection systems, infiltration/inflow studies, pumping stations, and permitting.
