Helping clients manage water resources and quality

Parametrix helps clients manage their water resources, water systems, and drinking water quality. We address the technical, ecological, and regulatory issues that water providers face. From source development and protection or infrastructure design for treatment, storage, and distribution, our multidisciplinary solutions are efficient and cost effective.

Client: Pacific City Joing-Water Sanitary Authority (PCJWSA)

To supply drinking water to its customers, the PCJWSA constructed a water treatment plant and surface water intake at Horn Creek, a tidally influenced tributary to the Nestucca River that supports federally listed salmon. Parametrix designed the 1,200 GPM treatment and disinfection plant that uses microfiltration technology. The project included building 3,000 feet of new transmission pipeline using shallow directional drill borings under active dairy pastures and the Nestucca River. As part of the project, we delineated wetlands, completed a habitat assessment, produced a biological assessment, and developed mitigation plans for project effects. We also led the complex permitting and approval process.
