  Water

Water supply, wastewater treatment, effluent disposal and reuse will continue to be critical issues for municipalities, private utilities and businesses. As populations grow and economic opportunity expands, new sources of water need to be developed and additional means of wastewater and biosolids treatment, reuse and disposal grow. Ardurra’s forward thinking water and wastewater engineers work diligently with clients to plan, design, permit and construct systems that address these needs in a comprehensive and holistic manner. This enables our clients to make smarter investments with lower life cycle costs and multiple benefits.

Ardurra’s water group consists of seasoned engineers, hydrologists and environmental scientists. We leverage the latest computer modeling programs combined with traditional engineering and business solutions to find the right solutions for our clients.

  Surveying

Ardurra’s professional land surveyors, field crews and technicians have the experience necessary to provide the innovative thinking and technical skills required to meet our clients’ unique needs. Ardurra uses state-of-the-art surveying equipment, including real-time global positioning systems equipment using Virtual Reference Station (VRS) networks which eliminates the need to set up a conventional GPS base station, wireless robotic total stations with data collectors and digital levels. These tools enable rapid collection of data and, combined with our advanced technologies in data transfer, Ardurra can wirelessly transmit information to and from the office, download files, collect and report work status and upload completed job files before the survey crews leave the field.

Ardurra offers high definition 3D LASER scanning which is a safer means of rapidly collecting data and mitigating risk to field crews by not having to physically locate in potentially hazardous environments. This technology has proven to be extremely accurate and provide more detailed information than conventional optical plane surveying. By using advanced 3D digital scanners, we can bring the project from the field to our desktops as a total 3D model. Utilizing VRS with laser scanning the project 3D model can be accurately placed in any required horizontal and vertical datum.
