Among the most important issues facing our growing population centers today is the continuing need for an adequate supply of high quality drinking water, adequate treatment of wastewater, and effective handling of stormwater. As communities grow and infrastructure ages, many municipalities are faced with significant and sometimes costly challenges to maintain these vital services.
Fisher Arnold’s engineers have extensive experience in all types of water, wastewater, and stormwater projects. Our talented staff of engineers can take any project from the planning, design, and construction phase to initial operations. Our team has expertise in all areas of permitting, loan and grant applications as well as development of operational and maintenance procedures.
Technology changes and advances constantly. Fisher Arnold strives to take advantage of new technologies to the greatest advantage for our clients.
Fisher Arnold’s engineers take special pride in developing a strong working relationship with the client’s operations staff. We believe the best projects occur when the operators and engineers are each part of the project team working together to create the most cost-effective and sustainable facilities as possible.
Sky Lake Dam
Sky Lake is an approximately 36 acre lake at normal pool, consisting of a 414 acre drainage basin, and was constructed circa 1960 in association with the surrounding Sky Lake subdivision. In May, 2010 during an intense storm event, outflow from the lake overtopped the main dam and resulted in some downstream flooding. Housing and Community Development, engaged Fisher Arnold to provide analysis and final design for rehabilitative improvements for both the main and upper lake dams and spillways. Based on initial analyses, Fisher Arnold recommended several improvements, including replacement of the main dam spillway to lower it in order to achieve necessary storage, repairing and replacement of sub-surface drainage in the main dam and along the outlet channel, reconstruction of the upper lake spillway, repairs to and reinforcement of the upper lake dam/levee and replacement of the main lake drawdown structure and outlet. Fisher Arnold proceeded to prepare final construction plans and bid documents, and perform construction administration and observation services throughout the construction period.
Arlington Wastewater Treatment Plant
The Town of Arlington has tripled in population since the 2000 census and is projected to grow 400% in the next twenty years.
Clear Creek Interceptor Sewer
Fisher Arnold was retained to study and design a sewer system to serve the Town of Arlington’s southern region. After several routes were investigated, FA designed a gravity system that will serve the current southern area and allow for future southern growth to its corporate limits.
Sewer Lift Station Rehabilitation
Fisher Arnold was retained by the City of Memphis to design improvements to six (6) sewer pump stations in 2013. These stations are designated Hanna Drive, North Watkins, Jack Carley Causeway, Mallory Bayou, Harbor Avenue, and Big Orange.
