Water

HBH Consulting Engineers, Inc. is known for our excellence and expertise in the water engineering field. We are especially recognized for our work with smaller water systems.

Our staff are among the most experienced engineers in the Northwest for water system planning and engineering. Our engineers have planned for and designed numerous water treatment plants, reservoirs, intakes, booster pump stations, transmission piping, and distribution networks. We have completed dozens of water system planning efforts and assisted many communities in gaining funding including grants, low interest loans, and municipal bonding.

HBH was selected by the Oregon Health Authority to assist 54 cities and water districts with completing the EPA's 2011 Drinking Water Infrastructure Needs Survey and Assessment. HBH's scope of work included: traveling throughout the state to interview water system staff; reviewing all available master plans/capital improvement plans, system maps, engineering reports, maintenance records, etc.; gathering appropriate documentation, focusing on the condition, remaining life, and deficiencies of the system infrastructure; identifying and documenting all eligible needs for the 20-year planning period; and ensuring that the Needs Survey and Assessment questionnaire was complete prior to submission.

As an indication of our capacity and qualifications, the State of Oregon Drinking Water Program selected HBH to serve as the Oregon Surface Water Circuit Rider and has repeatedly extended our contract due to our excellent performance. This opportunity has allowed our engineers to gain an even broader range of experience and has truly made HBH experts in the field of water system engineering. We feel confident in putting our engineering experience up against any other firm, large or small.
