Containment Systems

Containment systems such as reservoirs, basins, lagoons, and ponds for water and wastewater require a systematic and multi-disciplinary engineering approach and typically involves several key steps:

  • Site Selection
  • Risk Assessment
  • Civil Design
  • Geotechnical Analysis
  • Structural Design
  • Geosynthetic / Containment Design
  • Environmental Considerations
  • Hydraulic Analysis and Pumping Systems
  • Modernization and Upgrades
  • Monitoring and Maintenance

The integrity and functionality of containment systems are critical components in the dynamic public and private landscape. Our dedicated team of civil and geotechnical engineers possesses a deep understanding of the complexities involved in the design and repair of these structures. From addressing environmental considerations to implementing civil and geotechnical solutions, we approach each project with a meticulous focus on sustainable practices and adherence to industry standards. At S&ME, our goal is to contribute to the longevity and resilience of these reservoirs, basins, impoundments and ponds, ensuring they not only meet regulatory permitting requirements but also support the continuous and safe operation of our client’s infrastructure for years to come.
