Wastewater Collection

As government agencies tighten regulations for the collection and movement of wastewater flows from residential, commercial, and industrial developments, Cochran has tried to address the challenges that require specialized expertise to resolve. Wastewater flows can be highly variable and contain coarse solids that may be floating or suspended. The design of sanitary sewers involves the determination of proposed flows and the application of hydraulic engineering principles to devise adequate conveyances for transporting these flows.

Cochran’s team of professionals has the specialized expertise in all facets of wastewater collection and treatment for residential, commercial and industrial projects. Our focus is on both current needs and anticipated regulatory standards.  Our team can assist projects from conceptual planning and budgeting all the way through the design, financing, and construction phases.  Along with making sure there is successful wastewater operation and maintenance programs. As a result of our thorough knowledge of environmental regulations, Cochran’s engineers work closely with government agencies to assist in obtaining federal, state funding as well as the authorizations needed for compliance.
