Water Works

We understand Texas water and wastewater infrastructure.

What We

Southwest Engineers plays a pivotal role in assisting communities with the challenge of water resource design, distribution, wastewater treatment, conventional and alternative collection systems, permitting and maintenance.

Our work includes everything from designing reservoirs, to water transmission and distribution systems, to groundwater treatment and desalination facilities, to the removal of arsenic from local water supplies. With a first-hand knowledge of Texas land, few firms understand Texas water like we do.
