Conveyance & Storage

Networks, consisting of conveyance systems and storage schemes, are among the most valuable assets for communities everywhere. We employ a variety of technologies and approaches to move, control and store water.

Water Conveyance and Storage Solutions

For more than a century, we’ve built our reputation on thousands of projects and over 12,000 miles of conveyance pipeline infrastructure worldwide. From permitting through startup, we help our clients make holistic decisions from alignment, planning, design, construction, and operation of new water, wastewater and stormwater systems to rehabilitation and replacement.

Our global knowledge base is comprised of civil, mechanical, mining, structural, hydraulics and geotechnical engineers; planners; geographic information systems (GIS) experts; engineering geologists; and construction managers.  This integrated team has expertise in:

Our asset management plans leverage approaches such as PAS 55 and WERF SIMPLE to help utilities assess strengths, weaknesses and potential implementation steps. We can help clients assess the condition of their assets, prioritize capital improvement programs (CIP), adapt CIPs, optimize operations and maintenance, and assess system resilience and vulnerability.

When conveyance means tunneling, we turn to our experts who are skilled in underground construction, mechanical and non-mechanical methods, and trenchless technology. We have delivered a full range of geotechnical services and expertise for more than 650 miles of tunnels for raw water, treated water, stormwater, wastewater and combined and sanitary sewer overflows.
