Considered the top design and engineering firm for commercial wastewater systems in Texas, WWD Engineering experts are skilled at leading and executing highly successful wastewater system design projects. We use proven methods of coordination and collaboration with strict management of quality, value, schedule and cost. Our engineering and design services range from planning and permitting through preliminary and detailed design addressing the pre-construction life cycle of commercial wastewater systems.
Our engineering and design expertise is unparalleled:
When it comes to Texas’ most challenging wastewater system design projects, WWD Engineering is the go-to provider for innovative and cost effective results.
Our engineers have designed wastewater treatment facilities ranging in size from less than 5,000 gallons per day to over 500,000 gallons per day. Our experience encompasses sewer collection systems, advanced wastewater treatment facilities, residuals management and handling, odor control and water reuse. We have significant expertise in all facets of wastewater liquid stream and solids stream treatment ranging from conventional plants for organic removals to complex nutrient removal/resource recovery processes. We have also performed wastewater treatment plant upgrades to meet Title 22 reclamation requirements.
We handle all aspects of the pre-construction lifecycle of commercial wastewater systems addressing the Research Phase, System Concept Phase and the System Design Phase.
Planning, Regulatory Requirements, and Permitting
Through effective and efficient project planning, WWD Engineering experts provide comprehensive services and expertise in planning, regulatory requirements and permitting to ensure project success, with services including:
Preliminary Wastewater System Design
Our multi-disciplinary design team blends expertise and proven reputation for innovative, quality wastewater treatment system design projects:
Finalize Wastewater System Design
All of our work comes together in the system design phase; our design team finalizes the design and drives the local and state permitting process
Over the years, we’ve developed a well defined and streamlined process that addresses all elements of the wastewater system pre-construction life cycle. In addition to keeping our clients well informed throughout this process, we will handle all of the necessary permitting and documentation. This truly gives our clients total peace-of-mind – a turn-key and worry free approach.
WWD Engineering also offers commissioning services whereby processes, equipment, controls and systems are put through a series of operational and performance testing requirements.
We strive to have the people and processes in place to support the equipment and systems during the transition from construction to operation. Our field personnel observe all start-up and testing activities to check that not only do the individual systems (process, mechanical, and electrical) operate properly on their own, but also are functional, integrated parts of an overall system.
These services include:
In addition, after the wastewater treatment facility has been in use for a period of time, we will revisit the facility to ensure it is operating within specifications and confirm our design assumptions. We will make any adjustments necessary. In particular, we ensure that water waste is minimized and that processes are streamlined.
WWD Engineering will evaluate and negotiate land acquisition based on the land’s suitability for a wastewater facility.
Preparation of all documents required for local, municipal and state permitting for wastewater treatment plants that require land application of effluent. We will drive the permitting process at the local and state level.
Preparation and management of all wastewater system documentation
Preparation and management of all documents required for permit renewals
We will conduct site feasibility studies for new and proposed development that may require municipal wastewater permitting for treatment plants that require a land application of effluent
We will conduct site and soil evaluations to determine the feasibility of a wastewater facility onsite. WWD Engineering is licensed by the TCEQ to conduct this thorough and accurate evaluation
We will work with developers and owners to determine if the proposed site will require a land application of wastewater effluent
Determine if proposed site is suitable for a land application of wastewater effluent
Prepare bid documents, plans, specifications, bid solicitation for wastewater treatment plants which require a land application of effluent
Recycling storm water provides a green option for environmentally conscious establishments, taking storm water and distributing it to the local fauna via pipes most commonly located underground to ensure longevity, protecting them from external threats like the weather and animals. WWD Engineering also provides professional storm water re-irrigation inspections, analyzing the site and soil to properly evaluate the suitability of a storm water re-use system.
Before the design process even begins, WWD Engineering executes a thorough feasibility study to determine the workability of an on-site wastewater treatment plant.
A feasibility study entails an exhaustive analysis of every factor applicable to the site’s retention of an onsite wastewater system. This study is an absolutely necessary first step. Without this study, the practicality of an onsite plant remains an unknown, and it retains potential to fail due to geographic or regulatory reasons.
The feasibility study includes two aspects: inspection and evaluation. The inspection dissects all physical facts concerning the site (land) likely to be the location for the onsite wastewater system. The focus is on topography, soil depth, subsoil structure and texture, groundwater, and flood hazards. As part of this inspection, we also conduct site and soil evaluations. Paralleling the physical inspection, our design team also conducts a thorough analysis of any county, TCEQ and THS Code regulations.
The end result is a thorough, accurate analysis that takes into account the physical characteristics of the site and the regulatory environment in that area to determine the feasibility of an onsite wastewater system.
WWD Engineering provides site and soil evaluations as dictated by the State of Texas and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
Before the design process approaches the drawing table, site and soil evaluations are necessary. WWD Engineering is licensed by the TCEQ to conduct these thorough and accurate evaluations.
To evaluate the feasibility of an onsite wastewater system, our team considers the location of the site and its soil properties. A good understanding of these properties is very important to the success of an onsite wastewater system.
Experience is key to know what to search for during a site and soil evaluation. We consider soil properties, components, textures and particle sizes; we know how these affect the general soil structure and the site’s ability to support an onsite wastewater system. We also analyze the site as a whole, taking into account topography, landscape and hydrologic cycles. This provides for a clear image of how water moves through the site.
From this analysis, we can confidently determine any potential problems with the location.
Site and soil evaluations are a necessary component to site feasibility studies.
Considering the results from our site and soil evaluations in conjunction with TCEQ and THS Code regulations, WWD Engineering can accurately determine the feasibility of an onsite wastewater system.
As a resource in onsite wastewater systems, WWD Engineering provides domain expertise to clients and to local and state government agencies to quickly assess wastewater situations.
With over 50 years in onsite wastewater system design, our engineers are frequently called upon to:
