Project Description


Water Engineering

L.R. Kimball has successfully produced or assisted in the evaluation, design, financing, construction, and implementation of hundreds of water facilities projects for over 50 years.  L.R. Kimball is capable of completing all elements of a planning and water system improvement project.  We have developed work plans involving the application of unique planning and design strategies in response to issues, stringent compliance orders, statutory or regulatory requirements, and financial and institutional issues related to the owner’s needs.  L.R. Kimball is experienced in working with (and within) multi-jurisdictional authorities and has achieved great success in meeting state and local permitting and other regulatory requirements.  We are pro-active with regulatory and financial agencies and maintain routine contact with agency personnel.  This approach ensures that project issues and constraints are understood by all parties, facilitates the permit and funding approval process, and minimizes potential delays in project implementation.  L.R. Kimball has assembled an experienced project team of dedicated professionals who have established working relationships with federal, state, county, and local agencies.
