Among the offerings of the Municipal & District Services practice are general consultation, city engineering, planning, and program management/construction management support to MUDs, PUD’s, towns, cities, management districts, state agencies, and regional authorities. The practice provides smart solutions for both new construction and infrastructure improvement and regularly advises on operational issues, preventive maintenance, and capital improvements. The management of the public water supply, drainage, and sanitary sewer systems are rarely topics of conversation until one or all fail. It is the over-arching goal of the Municipal & District Services practice to recognize the complete system, propose solutions, and ensure it is operated and maintained in optimum condition for years to come.
