Municipal Wastewater Treatment System Design

A wastewater treatment plant is a major infrastructure asset for a city or town. Inadequate service can block commercial, school, and residential development and pose a significant risk to public health and the environment. When a community needs to upgrade or replace these assets, they have to maximize the long-term value of the improvements while keeping capital and maintenance costs down. Woodard & Curran thrives on challenges like this. 

Since our founding in 1979, we have helped hundreds of communities find creative ways to manage costs, implement new technology, install effective automation and controls systems, improve operations, and, perhaps most importantly, fund these essential capital project wisely. 

We have decades of experience in both design and operations, so we know how to create treatment systems that work in the real world, not just on paper. We consider operability from the outset, and engage with operators to understand their challenges and needs. Then we deliver a design that meets our client’s regulatory obligations, offers reliable service to residents, and doesn’t burden operators with unwieldy systems. And with in-house SCADA expertise, we provide the technology to supplement staff capabilities and optimize plant performance.

Client needs drive our decision-making

Because communities are challenged to maintain expanding networks of infrastructure despite increasingly restricted budgets and declining state and federal support, they have to invest capital extremely wisely. That’s why we work hard to make the most of existing assets, upgrade systems to meet new demands, and improve operational efficiency before deciding to invest in a completely new treatment facility. And if that’s truly necessary, we know how to identify, position for, and win grants and loans to reduce the financial burden.
