SGC engineers are experienced in preparing master plans for various water systems in New England. We understand that each system is unique and requires a tailored approach to planning for the future. SGC engineers are knowledgeable in evaluating system capacities and impacts on community growth with the intent to determine need for water main extensions or replacements, storage improvements, and water supply improvements. Recommendations are based on accurate water use audits, performing fire flow tests, modeling system hydraulics using modeling software to determine system deficiencies, and evaluating the adequacy of the system to meet the current and future demand projections.
SGC engineers possess the combined experience gained by completing an extensive number of water main installation and replacement projects, and storage facility projects. These projects have involved water mains from 4-inch to 24-inch diameter. Additional project experience includes the design of in-ground, cast-in-place concrete reservoirs, as well as using a synthetic liner and cover to rehabilitate an earthen reservoir. Staff experience encompasses water main and storage tank projects from initial planning through the design and construction phases.
SGC engineers have successfully applied their expertise and experience in evaluating water quality characteristics and implementing treatment system improvements for various clients. Improvements were driven by the need to replace aging equipment, increase capacity, or improve water quality. System designs have included conventional gravity and pressure filter treatment, and chlorine and UV disinfection units. In all cases, the foremost objective has been to effectively and economically preserve the community’s confidence in the safety and dependability of the potable water that is so vital to their lives.
