Nestled in “America’s Salad Bowl,” the City of Gonzales grappled with wastewater compliance challenges related to commercial and industrial land uses. To address this and accommodate industrial expansion, Dudek partnered with major local food processors and the City, providing engineering evaluation and design for an enhanced wastewater collection and treatment system.
When the Coachella Valley Water District constructed a new headworks at Water Reclamation Plant No. 7 (WRP 7), it was critical to remedy the lack of redundancy and diminishing reliability of the two-decades-old plant sludge thickening and dewatering system. Dudek provided professional engineering services to support the replacement of wastewater solids handling facilities at the
Dudek’s engineers and scientists help design, construct, and operate industrial water and wastewater treatment systems throughout the United States. We provide comprehensive and integrated services to a wide range of industrial clients, addressing technical issues involving potable water, stormwater, groundwater, leachate, wastewater, process water, and semi-solids.
In California, the past 20 years have been the driest in over 1,000 years, but a deluge of storms in January and February 2023 brought more than 24.5 trillion gallons of water to the state. “In the past several years, we’ve said, ‘We welcome every drop we can get,’” Dudek hydrogeologist Jill Weinberger said. But
Perhaps inspiring Murphy’s later pronouncement, mathematician Augustus De Morgan said, “Whatever can happen, will happen if we make trials enough.” At some point, your flood infrastructure will be tested by a storm event equal to or larger than the event it was designed to withstand. The chance in any given year that a storm occurs
The average wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in the U.S. is 40 to 50 years old and many of these aging facilities need upgrades. Federal funding programs are an option to complete a planned wastewater treatment plant upgrade. However, access to those funds comes with a caveat. To ensure climate resiliency and protect against flooding, the
California has more federally recognized tribes than any other state—109 to be exact. Within the State of California, Tribes, Tribal Communities, and Underrepresented Communities face multiple challenges regarding water equity and access to clean, affordable, and sustainable groundwater and water resources, such as groundwater overdraft and groundwater basin contamination. The Public Policy Institute of California
The Mountain Ave. West Groundwater Replenishment Basins project is a 40-acre recharge facility that is part of the San Jacinto Valley Enhanced Recharge and Recovery Program (SJVERRP) operated by the Eastern Municipal Water District. The SJVERRP will create a resilient water supply supporting the sustainable management of the San Jacinto Groundwater Basin (Basin), reduce dependence
Crestline Sanitation District undertook a project to construct a new two-story biosolids dewatering building and primary clarifier at their 0.7-million-gallon-per-day (MGD) Huston Creek WWTP (Wastewater Treatment Plant) to improve reliability and facility performance of the plant.
Clallam County proposed to restore streamflow to the Dungeness River with the creation of an off-channel reservoir on two Washington Department of Natural Resources-owned parcels. Dudek provided cultural resources surveys in support of the Dungeness River flow restoration, which required the installation of new water pipelines and tie-ins to the existing stormwater infrastructure, as well
