Water Systems Engineering Running with Purity

Project Design & Support For Municipal & Other Public Water Systems

Harms Engineering has extensive experience with water utility planning and design. We not only design municipal water infrastructures for subdivisions, site developments, and road extensions, but we also specialize in partnering with Group A and Group B public water systems (typically less than 300 connections).

As a full-service engineering firm, we assist small water systems in all aspects of their project to meet both the Department of Health and Ecology's regulatory requirements. From the initial planning phase to designing system improvements, we prepare water system management plans, secure funding, manage the competitive bidding process, and provide construction support.

Our clients have included water associations, water districts, mobile home parks, produce processors, wineries, daycares, farms, dairies, camps, and more.

Example Projects Providing Community Support Through Engineering

Our clients include contractors, architects/designers, land developers, insurance claims adjusters, attorneys, home and business owners, realtors, steel fabricators and water associations. The projects they bring are diverse and often present unique problems requiring individualized engineering solutions.

“Working with Harms is a pleasure. They always take my projects seriously and get them done in a timely manner. Harms is conscious of making decisions that are budget sensitive but don’t sacrifice quality. They work well with the municipalities and utility providers which helps for great relations when problems arise during construction. I highly recommend the team at Harms Engineering for all of your engineering needs.”
