In the fall of 2008, the City selected DGR to reconstruct water mains, sanitary and storm sewer and the highway pavement on Jefferson Street and TH 68. DGR assisted the City in obtaining funding for approximately 70% of the project costs via grants, state aid and county participation. The project utilized funding from the above referenced sources, as well as the City. DGR provided full time construction observation and administration to aid the City and record keeping and testing required by these agencies for reimbursement.

Treatment Plant & Well Exploration
DGR Engineering worked closely with OCRWS to design a new Water Treatment Plant to target iron and manganese removal from a shallow groundwater source near the site.
Due to concerns with the age and condition of the structures, along with safety clearances to energized equipment and conductors, a project was undertaken to replace the old infrastructure with new underground lines and associated padmount equipment.
