Infrastructure serves a fundamental role in our economy and quality of life, yet is often taken for granted or overlooked. Much of the United States infrastructure is overstretched, decades old, and in poor repair. In 2021, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gave America’s infrastructure a cumulative grade point average of C-, based on the physical condition and needed investments for improvement. Without modernizing roads, bridges, dams/levees, stormwater facilities, and water and sanitary sewer systems, our infrastructure will not keep pace with population growth and demands, resulting in unsafe conditions.

As America invests in infrastructure, some core processes are implemented for each project. These core processes generally include feasibility studies, design work, site layout, utility layout, stormwater management, public involvement, permitting, bidding, and construction management.

Trihydro's infrastructure and water/wastewater experts help public and private clients navigate infrastructure projects from planning through construction closeout. Our teams provide conceptual-level alternatives analyses to help establish funding needs and requirements; provide scope of services to fit your budget and schedule; and provide design, permitting, bidding, and construction services.

Roadway Design

ROADWAY DESIGN

Roadway design comes in many shapes and sizes, from reconstruction and rehabilitation to new construction. Design components vary depending on the roadway location, function, and level of service. Design elements range from concept study to road design, and from permitting to public hearings.

Important factors are addressed through design including, roadway geometrics (horizontal and vertical), right-of-way, utilities, drainage, potential environmental impacts and ...

Civil Site Development Design

CIVIL SITE DEVELOPMENT DESIGN

Civil site development design begins at the planning stage of a development project and carries through design, permitting, and construction. Whether working on a single site or multi-lot development, engineers actively work with project teams and local jurisdictions to proactively identify potential challenges.

Civil site development design encompasses numerous design needs, including off-site infrastructure capacity evaluation, site grading and drainage, ADA site accessibility, building coordination, water and sanitary sewer services, ...

Water Master Planning

WATER MASTER PLANNING

Water system master planning serves a critical role in evaluating drinking water systems and preparing a roadmap for future system improvements to keep up with increased demands while addressing aging infrastructure. Water source, storage, pumping, transmission, and distribution system components are evaluated alongside water quality, water rights, operations and maintenance, and other items to identify structural and non-structural improvement recommendations.

Following system evaluation and analysis, an implementation plan is prepared. The implementation plan details ...

Water Distribution System Design
WATER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM DESIGN

The public relies on effective water distribution systems for its water service and supply, and public and private water purveyors are charged with providing reliable, safe water. Water distribution system projects, whether for rehabilitating existing infrastructure or creating new water systems, require upfront planning and field investigation work to identify existing utilities and anticipate conflicts that may be encountered during construction.

Wastewater Master Planning
WASTEWATER MASTER PLANNING

Wastewater master plans help public and private entities manage their existing wastewater assets and plan for future wastewater system infrastructure to support growth. These plans provide a blueprint for infrastructure rehabilitation and expansion and serve as a guide for how to address system deficiencies. Wastewater master plans consolidate the various considerations that go into managing an effective wastewater system, including wastewater flow and population growth projections, condition of existing assets, treatment capacity, estimated construction costs, timing and priority for capital expenditures, and funding.

Wastewater Collection and Treatment System Design
WASTEWATER COLLECTION AND TREATMENT SYSTEM DESIGN

Effective wastewater collection and treatment system design allows public and private utilities and facilities to improve effluent treatment, enhance compliance efforts, and reduce costs. Domestic wastewater collection systems are comprised of a network of infrastructure that collect and convey wastewater. Effective wastewater system design requires an understanding of wastewater flow, wastewater load, and topography to establish system criteria for gravity and/or pressure components, to select the optimal type of collection system, and to establish system layout. Additionally, ...

Stormwater Basin and System Evaluation
STORMWATER BASIN AND SYSTEM EVALUATION

Stormwater basins, or detention and retention ponds, serve a critical role in managing runoff. When land gets developed, hard surfaces like roads and buildings reduce the amount of permeable or pervious area available to absorb and filter water. Without proper stormwater controls, the risk of flooding increases. Stormwater management techniques, like stormwater basins, can also help remove sediment and debris runoff collects as it flows over impervious surfaces. Stormwater systems provide the infrastructure to collect and convey stormwater runoff to the desired outfall, which is ...
