Combining state-of-the-art technologies with proven engineering principles, Axentys has provided comprehensive engineering services to municipalities throughout the United States for the full range of waste-water, collection, treatment, and disposal.
Assisting municipalities in optimally meeting their waste-water engineering needs with sensitivity to budgetary constraints, optimization of land use and minimal disruption to the urban environment during a project’s implementation is one of the firm’s areas of expertise. Greeley and Hansen has developed and implemented meaningful, comprehensive waste-water management master and facilities plans through to facilities design, construction and operations assistance. We are proud of our extensive, successful experience developing defined, environmentally sound plans and facilities for the collection, treatment, reuse, and disposal of waste-water.
As the world’s population increases, so does the demand for water. Even in water-rich regions, drinking-water shortages may exist due to urbanization and industrial demands. Water reclamation – the reuse of highly treated waste-water in place of drinking water for non-potable uses – reduces the demand on fresh water supplies and may also help protect the quality of existing potable water supplies.
Wet Weather/Sewer infrastructure
Wet weather issues present numerous challenges to public works and sewer agencies across the United States. Communities fortunate enough to have reliable public water and sewer service have invested valuable resources into protecting their infrastructure, including maintaining and preserving the integrity of piping networks. When severe storms strike or when drastic temperature swings cause significant amounts of snow or ice to melt in a relatively short time-frame, and depending on the level of ground saturation, the extent of paved surface, geology and topography, isolated neighborhoods can quickly be inundated with surface flooding or sewer overflows, or both.

Water resource management – the availability and accessibility of a plentiful, treatable water source – is the first issue facing new or expanding communities. Whether the proposed water supply is a natural or man-made lake, river, underground aquifer, water-reclamation source or even the ocean, Axentys understands the associated issues and opportunities. It is this broad base of understanding that enables Axentys engineers to work with clients and prepare the initial planning studies, followed by engineering designs for production, storage and distribution of water from a variety of sources.
Families grow and communities thrive where there is plentiful, clean water. Across the United States the planning, design and construction-related water supply and treatment services provided by Axentys engineers have helped to ensure plentiful, clean water for millions of people.
Some water storage reservoirs stand out as local landmarks, while others go almost completely unnoticed underground. In addition to their varied locations, the construction of these reservoirs can include such varied materials as reinforced concrete, pre-stressed concrete or steel.
