Featured Projects

A priority gaining momentum in the Red River Basin is reconstructing old dams to allow fish passage. Our team is proud to have helped reconstruct three dams that reconnected 20 miles of the Pelican River: Fish Lake, Prairie Lake, and Lizzie Lake.

One of our water quality team's favorite projects is the City of Eagan Water Reuse Targeting project we completed in 2017. This assessment gave the City information on where the most promising water reuse projects are in their area.
