Water

As a water service provider, you know just how many critical components are required to treat, store, pump and distribute water. DGR Engineering can help you with efficient planning and design as we work together to improve and maintain your system. If it’s traditional supply, treatment and distribution, or if your project needs a creative approach, DGR engineers coordinate closely with municipalities, rural water systems and industries to keep this natural resource flowing.

  • water supply, treatment, storage, pumping and distribution design
  • coating maintenance of storage tanks and treatment plants
  • hydraulic modeling and GIS
  • comprehensive planning, rate studies and funding assistance

Pipeline Improvements

56 mile pipeline project was designed, permitted, bid, installed, and started up in less than two years from the project’s inception.

Pipeline Improvements
May City, IA

Gravity Filter Rehabilitation

DGR Engineering evaluated replacement of the filters and construction of a new water treatment plant.  However, rehabilitation of the existing filters was significantly more economical.

Water Storage Tank Repainting

In just under four months, the tank was drained, sandblasted, and nearly 1,900 gallons of paint applied to over 100,000 square feet of surface area.  The tank was then returned to service.
