Street, Highway & Parking Lot Design
The various roads in your community play an important role in how the city functions. Well-designed streets provide efficient transportation systems for a wide range of vehicular and pedestrian use. WSN's civil engineers specialize in road layout and design, field surveying, construction staking, hydraulic analysis, wetland mitigation design, erosion control plans, permit applications, and construction cost estimates.
Wastewater Collection & Treatment Design
WSN's civil engineers are experienced in the design and construction of a range of wastewater collection and treatment systems including stabilization ponds, facility upgrades, sludge handling, mechanical wastewater treatment, alternative on-site systems, and constructed wetlands.
Water Storage, Treatment & Distribution Design
WSN's civil engineers in MN & ND are experienced in the supply, treatment, storage, and distribution of potable water resources. Our services include preliminary engineering studies; site evaluation; funding and grant application assistance; hydrogeologic investigation; water supply and treatment design, water storage and distribution system design; municipal well and pump design; permitting assistance and regulatory agency coordination; construction staking; construction engineering services; and start-up and operational assistance.
Site Evaluation & Engineering
WSN's civil engineers provide services for hydrologic and hydraulic analysis to prepare runoff studies, detention pond sizing and design, stormwater infiltration analysis, grading and drainage plans, utility plans, parking and frontage road design, and landscape plans.
Drainage & Irrigation Design
Water is an essential element of life; however, if the proper infrastructure is not in place, it can cause significant damage. Our civil engineers design quality systems for ditch engineering, watershed engineering, stormwater management, lake restoration, flood control, and wetland studies.
Impoundments’ primary purpose is to offer flood control. Secondary goals include wildlife management, stream flow augmentation, water quality enhancement, and public recreation. Check out the North Ottawa Impoundment project designed by our civil engineers.
Trail & Sidewalk Design
We take great care in designing paths that are efficient, blend well into their surroundings, and provide an exceptional experience for all users. WSN's civil engineers have designed thousands of miles of trails and sidewalks.
Our water resources engineers have decades of experience in developing stormwater solutions. This includes analysis and design of urban storm conveyance, treatment systems, and the development of Stormwater Pollution Prevention Programs (SWPPPs). We have extensive knowledge and adaptability to ever changing agency and permitting requirements ensuring our delivery of compliant and effective solutions to our clients.
Traffic, Transportation & Signing
Widseth Smith Nolting’s transportation projects are designed to improve traffic safety and mobility while balancing the effects construction may have on personal property and the environment. WSN regularly works with the Department of Transportation, counties, and cities on these thoroughfares, which connect communities and provide important tourism and farm-to-market routes. WSN’s civil engineers have an in-depth understanding of the many aspects of developing highway construction projects. Considerations include right-of-way acquisition procedures, environmental stewardship requirements, funding sources, safety initiatives, and agency maintenance considerations.
