CIPP Lining Certification

Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) is a cost effective way to repair aging sewer collection lines because it’s trenchless and does not require pavement removal and replacement. Our experience with CIPP projects includes main line rehabilitation and lateral lining (service lines) to homes, which is often the source of sewer problems. With many of us completing the National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) Inspector Training and Certification Program, you can count on us for expertise.

FEMA

FEMA floodplains protect the public from flooding. Floodplain maps may inadvertently show properties and structures within Special Flood Hazard Areas, which requires the property owner to purchase flood insurance. We provide professional engineering and surveying services to provide elevation certificates for flood insurance rating purposes.  If a structure and/or property are at or above the Base Flood Elevation, we can submit a Letter of Map Amendment to FEMA to be removed from the flood insurance requirement. We also have a Certified Floodplain Manager on staff to assist communities with floodplain management such as map revisions, no-rise certificates, regulatory questions, or other FEMA submittals.

NACE Certification

Whether it’s water tower painting or applying a lining to the inside of a concrete tank, coatings have become an important part of protecting infrastructure. Our Level I & II NACE certified inspectors have formal knowledge about surface preparation and proper application of the coatings. Our coating inspection services are designed to keep the property owner’s best interests in mind.  Through strict quality assurance our technician will verify that project specifications are met.

Wetland Delineation

Our wetland delineation services investigate the soil, vegetation, and hydrography conditions of a site to establish the existence, location, and size of a wetland for the purposes of federal, state, and local regulations. Findings are assembled into a report and submitted to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who makes the determination if a wetland is jurisdictional and subject to protection as “Waters of the United States”.  Once a determination is made, we can provide assistance with wetland options including avoidance, alternative analysis, mitigation, and permitting. 

Funding

We have years of experience developing funding for water, wastewater, streets, roads, and other infrastructure projects. Our industry relationships partner projects and economic development needs with funding programs offered through State agencies and other organizations.
