2022 World Pollution Prevention Day – December 2, 2022
At AES Consulting Engineers, we work diligently to reduce pollution by using sustainable practices. To work with the environment, AES uses a number of stormwater management practices, including filtration via vegetation. Protecting our lakes, rivers and wetlands are fundamental to responsible and sustainable land development design.
The talented folks in each of our service areas areas contribute to prevent pollution:
Civil Engineering designs systems for onsite water resources. This includes, but is not limited to, stormwater management, potable water access, water for fire safety, and wastewater distribution and treatment. Designing these elements using the most efficient and sustainable methods provides value and safety to any development.
Land Planning provides conceptual layouts and community master planning to assure local planning and zoning officials that water resources are being protected and potable water services are being provided.
Surveying involves the collection of site data through both research and physical site access and assessment. Much of this data includes the location of any existing water utilities and existing stormwater management facilities. Surveying the existing topography is invaluable to engineers as they grade the site to treat stormwater quantity and quality. Additionally, surveying delineates any protected wetlands as located by environmental groups.
Landscape Architecture creates plans that incorporate sustainable and organic elements to direct and treat stormwater runoff. Planting selections as well as use of rock and other natural elements act as a filtration system. This removes pollutants from the water runoff. Talented landscape architects can transform stormwater treatment systems into functional and aesthetically pleasing water features.
Municipal Utility Design, at AES, includes the creation of design documents for public water lines, sewage pumping station, well systems, grinder-pump systems, gravity sewer systems and many other approaches to serving the water needs of the built environment.
AES strives to make a difference every day
We highly value the health of our local streams, rivers, lakes, and wetlands. Properly designed water systems facilitate increased growth of our vegetation and landscapes. AES Consulting Engineers is constantly helping to shape our local communities. Our designs address public health and safety.
