Water Resource Management

Water Resource Management & Planning

Cochran understands that good water resource management and planning is the key to delivering solutions for wastewater, drinking water, and storm water resource projects that minimize cost and maximize the sustainability of resources.  Civil engineers are the chief developers of the infrastructure in the United States. Well managed and operated private and public infrastructure utilities benefit the environment and the community.  This infrastructure network is quite innovative and complex, requiring a great deal of thought and planning to make sure it properly uses its natural surroundings. Our team has the training and expertise for implementing the important aspects of successful water resource infrastructure management and planning with over 60 years of firm experience.

Regular investment in, and maintenance of infrastructure systems is critical to protecting public health. Our approach provides quality design from supplying municipal water needs to commercial sites. As civil engineers, our job is to plan, design, construct, and maintain our infrastructure networks.  By viewing water resources as an integrated system, Cochran’s experienced team bases our approach to water resource management on:

Recognizing and taking advantage of interconnections between surface and groundwater bodies.
Exploiting the potential for coordinated use of existing facilities.
Acknowledging that water quantity and quality are a single issue.
Accepting that the expansiveness of water resources systems may require regional rather than local solutions to problems.

It is critical that the design process includes our clients and other stakeholders to provide a practical and effective solution that balances cost, maintenance and aesthetics and meets government regulations. Within our water resource management practice, we offer the following specialized services:

Wastewater systems are made up of four components: collection, conveyance, treatment, and discharge. Cochran’s team of professionals has the specialized expertise in all areas of wastewater collection and treatment for municipal, residential, commercial, and industrial projects.

Our experienced team has designed water supply, distribution, treatment, storage facilities for municipal and rural communities.  Cochran will assist you with the planning, budgeting, design, operation, maintenance, and construction of your drinking water needs.

Properly designed drainage and stormwater management systems for building sites, roadways and infrastructure need to be designed to manage and control runoff from wet weather flow and urban stormwater events. We have designed and engineered innovative solutions for stormwater issues for individual building projects, as well as multi-acre developments throughout the Midwest.
