Evolving regulatory requirements and aging infrastructure often present challenges to existing wastewater facilities. With a diverse knowledge base, Snyder & Associates can help plan and design wastewater services to overcome the challenges facing your wastewater system. Our design expertise ranges from single-cell lagoon systems all the way up to complex wastewater plants — encompassing lift stations, flow equalization basins, force mains, and gravity mains.
Our team proficiently evaluates your current system and makes thoughtful, budget-minded recommendations for new facility plan preparations, when warranted. We’re prepared to assist with all project aspects, from the initial creation of design documents and funding opportunities, through the bidding process and construction administration.
Wastewater system improvements to achieve regulatory compliance can be radically different and unfamiliar to your operations team. With licensed, on-staff operators, we’re uniquely prepared to address these challenges by temporarily assisting with the startup of new technology as your staff gets up to speed. We’re also available to help develop operational procedures and documents to guide smooth, efficient operations long-term. Our teams are client-focused, so once improvements to your wastewater system are complete, we’ll remain involved to guide ongoing operation and maintenance efforts.
Snyder & Associates has the in-house expertise to deliver customized industrial wastewater treatment designs for our clients. Our ability to integrate a multitude of components and disciplines while developing an individualized solution that fits your facility’s requirements sets us apart from the competition. We understand the stringent treatment regulations placed on industrial facilities along with the lack of available financial assistance. Because of this, our team doesn’t push unnecessary solutions or products but instead recommends only what is necessary for the facility to run efficiently and meet all permit limits.
No matter the industry, we can apply our extensive water and wastewater technical skills to help you achieve your goals in industrial wastewater system performance.
Our professional staff provides sewer system modeling, condition assessments, inflow and infiltration analysis, and treatment facility performance analysis. These resources are integral to develop cost-effective capital improvement plans and assist with budgetary forecasting to maintain wastewater infrastructure.
We understand the financial challenges our clients face and consistently work to achieve the maximum amount of available state and federal funding while minimizing design and construction costs. Traditional funding sources include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), State Revolving Fund (SRF), and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Loans.
The permitting process for wastewater projects can be complicated, particularly when receiving funding assistance. Our team of wastewater professionals has an extensive background in all areas of permitting and works directly with regulatory staff to streamline the process. Each project is unique with numerous conditions to meet before construction permits become available. Our coordination efforts, especially in the early stages, ensures projects stay on schedule.
Snyder & Associates has a proven track record of consistently producing high-quality construction plans and specifications that contractors have come to expect. This attention to detail is often reflected in the bid price. Clear and concise bidding documents are essential to accurately estimate construction costs and obtain competitive bids — ultimately saving money for our clients.
Gravity sewers are one of the earliest and least complex methods of wastewater management. Over time, however, numerous improvements to piping systems have changed how wastewater is transported from houses, businesses, and industrial facilities. Our experience with new gravity sewer systems ranges from simple development sewer extensions to large-diameter trunk sewers through congested urban areas. Regardless of project size, we have the resources needed to provide sustainable solutions.
Snyder & Associates experience with pump stations and force mains spans a wide range of capacities and design constraints. Our team has designed systems ranging from small, individual pump stations to large, multi-pump facilities capable of moving millions of gallons per day. We’ll evaluate multiple options to recommend the optimum solution for the unique circumstances of each project. We also have experience designing complex control systems including Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA), Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), and eddy current drive speed control systems.
Remote areas without access to public sewer infrastructure often utilize on-site treatment methods to manage wastewater. Each location presents unique challenges, so we approach every project with an open mind and communicate regularly with clients to implement the best possible solution.
Our dedicated team is highly trained and experienced in all aspects of wastewater treatment facility systems. We successfully guide clients from conceptual planning and comprehensive design to facility startup and stabilization of your new system.
