Design Specialized To Your Needs

Does the proposed system deliver the right quantity and pressure of water? Can it serve your users for years to come? No one knows your system — and your community — like you. Klingner’s engineering team keeps you involved throughout the process to tailor each drinking water solution.

The end result isn’t just our design; it’s yours, too.

Water Distribution Infrastructure Grant Support

We remove the guesswork from the grant process. The experts at Klingner know that a thorough preliminary engineering report is your best tool to secure the most state and federal funding possible.

In addition to assessing your current system, prioritizing upgrades, and presenting alternatives and cost estimates, each report outlines potential funding sources and a community’s eligibility.

Permitting Assistance

Klingner engineers know the permitting process – inside and out. In addition to construction permits for water infrastructure, Klingner frequently provides the documentation required for newly-constructed facilities. Our operating permit services include O&M manuals, assistance with regulatory agency forms documenting completed construction, production of bacteria test documentation, and gathering other necessary operational information. Having worked extensively in Missouri, Illinois, and Iowa, we are more than prepared to see your project through to completion.
