RH2 has assisted clients in every aspect of wastewater treatment planning and facility design, including conceptualization, predesign, design, permitting, and construction on a multitude of projects ranging from somewhat simple to very complex. Our design team excels at applying creative solutions to complex problems. Our sophisticated use of 3D modeling for facility design allows us to build digital models of complex facilities before construction takes place. This approach allows our clients to clearly visualize our designs prior to construction.
Our approach to wastewater treatment facility planning and design is to promote positive and open communication with all interested and potentially affected parties, including regulatory agencies, community leaders, facility owners and operators, and the public. The amount of resources available for planning, expansion or replacement, and operation of facilities is usually limited; therefore, the need for a practical approach with unanimous approval cannot be overemphasized. Improvements proposed for short-term solutions should be coordinated with long-term needs so nothing is wasted. Also, data from traditional planning of treatment plants should be verified with the operator’s actual experience with their own system to confirm the constructed facility fits the existing conditions and operating characteristics at the proposed site.
Permitting and agency approvals are an important part of wastewater treatment system improvement projects. RH2 has extensive experience with environmental permitting compliance and can assist the client in developing technically competent and procedurally compliant processes to meet any of these requirements. We also have significant experience in assisting clients with addressing NPDES facility permitting conditions and negotiations for permit renewal.
Our full range of service capabilities, from site evaluation to planning, design, permitting, and construction observation, makes RH2 uniquely qualified to provide high-quality engineering services at every level of the wastewater treatment facility improvement process.
