Engineering


 

Northwest Water Systems provides a wide range of engineering and design.  Our technical engineering resources allow us to develop a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between the assessment of the infrastructure and the utility management implications.  That focus allows us to develop an in-depth knowledge that exceeds that of much larger engineering firms, while affording us the opportunity to provide the quality of service and attention to detail (not to mention, the lower overhead) of a smaller firm.

We are committed to making the best use of your existing infrastructure when designing an expansion, and have excellent rapport with the regulatory agencies to see the expansion through the approval process.  Our engineering and design services also include providing practical, accurate, and useful water system mapping and locating so that existing facilities can be found, utilized and understood in the course of day-to-day operations as well as during emergencies related to the water system.
