Tetra Tech provides integrated solutions for solid waste infrastructure design to maximize clients’ assets.

Tetra Tech has years of experience in providing services for site and civil engineering features at solid waste facilities. Our design, permitting, and construction management solutions help clients maximize operational and asset efficiency, profit, safety, and durability.

Infrastructure and civil design features—including roadways, traffic circulation, stormwater system components, and building design—are critical elements of any development but are often overlooked unless they are causing a problem. Tetra Tech’s solid waste engineers work with clients to ensure the proper layout and design is implemented to provide easy and safe access; proper stormwater management to prevent flooding; necessary site utilities; and local planning and zoning compliance.

Our site and civil design solutions include innovative ways to maximize the facility’s operational flexibility, while complying with regulatory requirements. We look for opportunities to incorporate civil design features that make efficient use of scarce resources and provide environmental benefits.

Tetra Tech solid waste experts have years of experience in designing and permitting site improvements and civil features at solid waste facilities. Tetra Tech can provide expert site and civil designs that meet client objectives—whether we are providing civil engineering support for buildings and support facilities, potable water lines, sanitary sewer connections, site grading, surface water controls, or parking and access.
