Drinking Water Distribution


Residential, commercial and industrial consumers are all served by municipal drinking water distribution systems, with some systems also providing storage and capacity for fire protection. As communities expand and grow, these distribution systems can become insufficient. At Wessler Engineering, we understand the problems drinking water distribution systems face from inadequate capacity to serve communities to bottlenecks in water mains to problematic storage capacity to provide fire protection. 

We work with clients to solve issues like these by designing new water mains, relocating and extending water mains, designing storage tanks and finding other creative and economical solutions. We understand the new lead and copper rule, asset management, water main replacement programs, smart meter system, and GIS systems. We implement these solutions successfully, on budget and on time.

At Wessler, our goal is to create efficiency for our clients by utilizing new and proven technologies in drinking water storage, pumping and distribution. No matter the size or complexity of the project, we provide expert knowledge and service. We also are familiar with funding agencies and can assist clients in applying for project grants and loans.
