Burgess & Niple - Water | Treatment


B&N delivers a wide range of water and wastewater treatment solutions that improve aging systems, manage regulatory compliance, ensure future water supply, and much more. From research and analysis through design of advanced treatment plants, our experience encompasses the entire spectrum of water and wastewater engineering. With proven success that spans more than a century, our team of industry experts also offers leadership in project funding and public involvement.


Providing safe, potable water to the public is a great responsibility - one that B&N has accepted for more than a century. Starting with facilities planning and feasibility studies through pilot testing and final design, we have a proven record of delivering solutions that meet water quality standards using the latest technologies. This includes advanced oxidation, UV, BAF, GAC, and nanofiltration to address TTHM’s, specific organics and softening.


Our wastewater treatment experience ranges from small packaged plants to facilities that serve large metropolitan areas. To help ensure that projects will function as designed, we use computer models to quickly and easily create various flows and loading scenarios. We also provide regulatory guidance and use advanced treatment techniques to meet current and anticipated regulations, including nitrogen and phosphorus removal.

Industrial Treatment

Treating wastewater generated from industrial processes presents a wide range of challenges. The variation of pollutants, flows, strengths and required effluent quality make each treatment system unique. B&N evaluates and designs process wastewater treatment systems for industrial facilities that help ensure National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) compliance. We work closely with clients to understand the unique characteristics of each system and address the challenges that they face.
