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.
- Electrical Power
DGR engineers helped L&O Power Cooperative improve communications on its electric transmission system using existing transmission lines, fiber and underground fiber line.

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.

Street & Utility Improvements
Morningside Avenue was reconstructed totaling approximately 1,300 linear feet. The project included new sanitary sewer, water main, storm sewer, fiber conduits, decorative street lighting, and 9-inch concrete paving with colored concrete sidewalks.

Wastewater Treatment Facility
The new plant, rated for 5.3 million gallons per day (MGD) peak day, doubles the capacity of its predecessor.
Planning started with site plan design for the new facility to offer maximum exposure to traffic on Highway 75.
