INDUSTRIAL WATER MANAGEMENT

Bridge & Stream engineers have broad experience optimizing water management at various industrial facilities, including mines, landfills, and power generation plants.  Our capabilities in storm water management, hydraulic structure design, pump and pipeline systems, and environmental considerations can be leveraged for large industry applications.

Mining

  • Storm water management analyses for mining facilities including the design of channels, ponds, downchutes, pumping systems, stilling basins, pipelines, erosion control measures, and hydraulic structures for mine development, operations and reclamation conditions.

  • Watershed-wide environmental protection projects from permit applications through construction, including design of erosion control measures using BMPs and evaluation of stormwater impacts during various phases of construction for mining and quarry operations. 

  • Hydrologic and hydraulic analyses for the revision of FEMA floodplain maps when needed. 

  • Completion of civil designs to prepare construction drawings and specifications for mine operations and reclamation scenarios to restore disturbed areas to near-natural conditions.

Power Generation

  • Hydraulic calculations to analyze the ability of existing and proposed water supply pumps and pipelines to convey future design flows for power plants.  

  • Hydrologic and hydraulic calculations for the development of ash landfill facilities including grading plans, evaluation of pump and pipeline capabilities needed to service the ponds, and design of runoff control measures to protect facilities from long-term erosion.

  • Preparation of design drawings for permitting and construction purposes and facilitation of plant operations with upgraded training manuals and operational procedures. 

  • Condition assessment of pump stations and underground pipelines, and recommendations for upgrades. Preparation of hydraulic calculations and construction documents for the installation of new infrastructure to improve water supply systems.

 

Waste Management

  • Hydrologic and hydraulic calculations for the development of landfill facilities including grading plans, diversion berms, and design of runoff control measures to protect facilities from long-term erosion.

  • Design of ponds and peak flow attenuation structures such as perforated riser pipes to control and manage stormwater runoff and meet maximum outflow criteria.

  • Hydrologic and hydraulic analyses for the revision of FEMA floodplain maps when needed.
