Sewer

We Employ Environmental Engineers Certified by the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists

They are, in all likelihood, the oldest pieces of infrastructure in your city. They were laid deep beneath the dirt in the day of your fathers and grandfathers. When they break, they cause you more trouble than any other infrastructure you control.

They are sanitary sewer pipes.

Infrastructure in our cities and towns continues to age, and sanitary sewer networks are among the oldest pieces of installed hardware, with many systems predating municipal/rural water networks and nearing 100 years of age. The demand for sewer network replacement and rehabilitation is higher than it has ever been, as cities and towns outgrow and over-utilize these antiquated systems, some of which still utilize pipes molded from clay, just as the Romans did 2,000 years ago. When these networks fail, inflow and infiltration can cause wastewater treatment facilities to become overwhelmed, and raw sewage can backup to the surface and create an awful health hazard for citizens.

WGK's environmental engineers consider all factors - from geography to projected growth to the treatment process - when designing new sanitary sewer networks or repairs to existing networks to advance you toward a functioning, contained system.
