DGR Engineering (DGR) collaborated with a long-standing airport engineering partner at the Brookings, SD Regional Airport to provide unique airport-electrical expertise and designed the $2.3 million airport electrical and instrument landing system. The total cost for the reconstruction project was $20 million.
This project involved coordination and design of navigational equipment and systems that are owned and operated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Therefore, DGR coordinated heavily with the FAA’s Navaids (navigation aids) Engineering Center in Chicago. The project required significant coordination to comply with the FAA internal equipment procurement process.
The primary runway was also being reconstructed on a new alignment, so this project included new electrical facilities and the relocation of several existing facilities.
High-end aviation-electrical engineering is a DGR specialty. Some firms do airports, some do electrical, not many do both. DGR Engineering is unique, offering both specialties under one roof. This enables DGR to take on more complex airport-electrical projects and integrate these services for clients.

Street Lighting Improvements
The City replaced the old lighting system with a modern LED based system to reduce operating cost. Decorative style lighting units were used, which enhanced the aesthetics of the downtown area, and match what had been utilized in other parts of the city.
Pump Station & Storage Reservoirs
The new Edgerton Pump Station (EPS) was constructed to facilitate bringing purchased water from Lewis & Clark Regional Water System (L&C) to the LPRW system.
Box Culvert Bridge Replacement
DGR Engineering worked with the SWO and BIA staff to design an economically feasible replacement for the deficient bridge structure.
Northeast South Dakota
