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

Water Source Development
DGR and Red Rock Rural Water System teamed up with POET to perform a program of exploratory drilling, test pumping and well field development. Designed three production wells capable of supplying 1.4 MGD to the ethanol plant and 9 miles of 10” diameter raw water main.
Sandness Raw Water Main Project
DGR Engineering designed 27 miles of 12” – 24”, and used their knowledge of cost effective rural construction to save Marshall Municipal Utilities millions of dollars in construction costs, and providing capacity to deliver over 4 million gallons of additional water each day.
The North Core Pipeline project consisted of approximately 70 miles of pipeline from near Ft. Pierre to Philip, four ground storage reservoirs, and four pump stations.
DGR employed a Geographic Information System (GIS) in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to first determine the 100-year flood elevations and delineate the floodway boundaries.
Search for High Capacity Wells
OCRWS rapid growth in water demands had pushed their existing wells to the limit, and it was now time to start looking for additional water supply.
Ground Storage Reservoir
Construction of a 500,000 gallon prestressed concrete ground storage reservoir, site work and site piping.
Orange City, IA
Water Supply Development
DGR Engineering worked with LCRWS to diversify their water supply options for their future growth.
Water Treatment Plant Expansion
Construction of a water treatment plant expansion of 1200 gpm capacity, filter cells; masonry building; yard and process piping; line shaft turbine high service and backwash pumps; horizontal split case transfer pumps; HVAC; electrical and control; site work and miscellaneous appurtenant work.
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.
56 mile pipeline project was designed, permitted, bid, installed, and started up in less than two years from the project’s inception.
May City, IA
Water Storage Tank Coating
Removal and abatement of lead-based paint and intricate logo and logo lighting system design.
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.
Sioux City, IA
Connection to L-P Rural Water
DGR completed a preliminary engineering report that met all the requirements for Rural Development.
Ground Storage Reservoir
The ground storage reservoir is a critical component of the water treatment process, allowing surge capacity between the filtration process and the softening system.
Water Treatment Plant
DGR Engineering worked with Clay Rural Water System to construct a reverse osmosis water treatment plant to take water with raw water combined radium 226 + 228 of 12.4 pCi/L down to below detection limits.
