Water Quality and Hydraulic Modeling

McFadden Engineering has been on the leading edge of water quality modeling for more than 30 years, helping to develop some of the first water quality models used by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM). Water quality modeling can be used to estimate the environmental impact of factors such as wastewater treatment plant discharges, industrial activity and commercial site development.

Facility Management and Operations

McFadden Engineering offers facility management and operation services to ease the burden our clients face when tasked with maintaining general facilities and wastewater treatment operations for their organizations. 

Our experienced Class 4 Wastewater Operator and engineering staff offer training, maintenance and full facility management to customers with small to medium flow wastewater systems, including schools, college campuses and small municipalities. We understand these organizations may not have a wastewater operator on staff, which is when McFadden’s team can step in and address those needs. McFadden Engineering can assess and maintain existing wastewater treatment operations and can also offer training and new management solutions for operators who may face recurring challenges on the job.
