Water needs to flow freely and in plentiful supply to all parts of the community, in real time, on-demand and in perpetuity. The storage and distribution system must be designed to accommodate growth and environmental changes as well as the ever-advancing technology of moving it from storage receptacle to kitchen faucet.
Pairing water system modeling software with our broad understanding of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) regulations, Kunkel Engineering Group provides efficient, economical solutions to water system challenges for communities small and large.
Wastewater Collection and Treatment
Wastewater collection and treatment are cornerstone components of any community’s infrastructure. Business and residential development hinges on appropriate systems, as does the long-term viability and sustainability of the community.
Encompassing a myriad of services from facility planning and design to regulatory compliance, inflow and infiltration (I/I) evaluation, and schematics for wastewater treatment and sludge management, Kunkel Engineering Group’s familiarity with and knowledge regarding these issues is unparalleled in the industry.
Heavy rainfall events and flooding can stress overflows and bypass systems beyond their limits, creating often disastrous outcomes. We have worked with a number of communities whose systems did fail under such circumstances and on top of the physical mess it left behind, were also faced with citations for violation of Wisconsin DNR permits and subsequently referred to the Department of Justice for prosecution. Our experience in both planning for and preventing system failure as well as in the mitigation and updating of those that have failed sets us apart in the industry and provides for our client communities with an enhanced level of confidence in the systems we design.
