Small and medium-sized public community and nonprofit non-community water systems may qualify for free engineering assistance for drinking water systems under DEP’s Professional Engineering Services Program.
Capital improvement projects and consolidations with other systems may qualify for:
-- Investigations to determine the cause of the system technical issues;
-- Feasibility studies to determine the most feasible and cost-effective solution to addressing system technical problems;
-- Design work related to public water system facilities;
-- Construction and operational permit applications;
-- Preparation of funding applications for public water system construction projects; and,
-- Construction bid preparation and construction contractor procurement assistance.
A commitment to address system weaknesses, commitment to follow through with the project, and willingness to budget resources to sustain the designed project after construction are critical to qualify for the Professional Engineering Services Program.
