The Franks Engineering team has designed several water treatment and distribution system projects. Projects incorporating selective chemical conditioning systems and mixed media filtration systems including backwash air scour are utilized to comply with critical THM and turbidity requirements while meeting recent disinfection contact time regulations. Staff experience specifically related to transmission and distribution system and water tank projects result in cost-effective designs. Funding for water improvement projects has been secured from the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, Arkansas Department of Economic Development, USDA Rural Development, Texas Community Development Program and the Texas Water Development Board with loan and grant amounts. The firm also assists local governments in developing proposals and literature for local bond issues to provide projects funding.
