Pipeline Alignment Analysis and Design

Water conveyance infrastructure, particularly potable water and wastewater pipelines, are critical to the health, safety, and prosperity of society. Our engineers have supported the planning, modeling, alignment analysis, and final design of water, gravity sewer, force main, recycled water, brineline, and stormwater pipelines for more than 35 years. With a wealth of experience with all types of pipeline materials, sizes, and construction methods, we have the tools to address both typical installations and unique circumstances.

Out of Sight, but Critical to Life

Our engineers help you install buried pipelines by performing alignment and hydraulic analysis to select the best location and correct size pipe that will accommodate future growth. We use our knowledge of the subsurface conditions, vicinity to neighboring utilities, and proximity to traffic to streamline the process and craft designs that accommodate site constraints and necessary access points. We specialize in water-related pipeline infrastructure for:

  • Potable water
  • Recycled water
  • Wastewater/sewer gravity and force mains
  • Brineline/treatment effluent/outfall pipelines
  • Stormwater
