Engineering & Capital Delivery Services

Driven by operability, our infrastructure designs are constructible, reliable and resilient

Today’s water and wastewater infrastructure must be built with more than 50 years of cost-effective operations in mind. We have operated water and wastewater systems of all types and ages, and have the unique advantage of knowing when design will work and when it won’t. Together with our strategic consulting partners, we can help clients deliver the following engineering design and construction services:


In design, theory can take you only so far. When we’re involved in water or wastewater design, we know which designs can be operated efficiently and which ones will be built to last.


And when we’re involved in construction management and commissioning, we know that the system will be constructed as intended … reliable and resilient.

Commissioning & Start-up

OCWA is an integral member of commissioning teams and we contribute to major upgrades at client facilities. Our engineers are adept at managing contractors and sub-contractors during the construction and commissioning phases of the project. We ensure that all project requirements are being met and the project is carried out smoothly.

Operability Reviews

OCWA routinely analyzes, investigates and, where appropriate, implements measures to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of each facility we operate. Evaluating vertical and horizontal water and wastewater infrastructure, we provide asset management and capital and financial planning, environmental assessments and advice. Such assessments help municipalities to project capital budget requirements for subsequent years.
