WATERRESOURCES

Wood Rodgers has a broad range of expertise in water resources planning, analysis, and design. From source generation, treatment, conveyance, and distribution, to drainage analyses and flood control design, our engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, and floodplain managers are equipped to bring innovative solutions to complex water resources problems.

WATER SUPPLY, WATER TREATMENT AND DISTRIBUTION

Deep knowledge of groundwater analyses and well design, treatment (constituent removal), and distribution including pump stations, booster stations, storage tanks, and piping systems.

HYDROLOGIC AND HYDRAULIC ANALYSES

Provide watershed analyses, rainfall distribution, dynamic flow routing, and floodplain mapping; 1, 2, and 3-dimensional numerical river and stream modeling; site drainage analyses and municipal storm drainage master planning.

FLOOD AND DRAINAGE INFRASTRUCTURE DESIGN

We design conveyance channels, pipelines, pump stations, detention basins, floodwalls, levees, and hydraulic structures.

WASTEWATER ENGINEERING

Providing master planning, hydraulic modeling, system analysis, condition assessment, pipeline design, lift station design, rehabilitation, and trenchless technologies.

Project Case Study

Little Egbert Tract Feasibility Study

SOLANO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA

On behalf of the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency (SAFCA), Wood Rodgers evaluated 15 alternatives for constructing a multi-benefit project on Little Egbert Tract, located within the lower reach of the Yolo Bypass immediately north of the City of Rio Vista. The purpose of the study was to identify a preferred land use combination considering regional agricultural sustainability, ecosystem enhancement, and flood risk reduction. The work required coordination with a number of regional stakeholders including Solano County, Caltrans, local Reclamation Districts, state and federal fisheries agencies, DWR, and Westervelt Ecological Services. Wood Rodgers led the feasibility including providing project management, civil analyses, Feasibility Study report preparation, and facilitation of Study Charettes.
