Covering water and wastewater needs throughout the entire cycle.

From partnering with our clients to study a problem to developing an initial concept for resolution and carrying that solution all the way to commissioning, LaBella supports our clients with a full range of water and wastewater infrastructure needs.

Our design services in infrastructure include treatment, distribution, storage, and collection systems. They extend from water source to point of use, and point of wastewater generation to effluent discharge or back to point of reuse.

Whether it’s ten thousand or ten million gallons per day, 1,000 or 20,000 linear feet, or 2-inch or 24-inch pipe diameter, LaBella can customize a solution to meet your needs. We offer studies/assessments, planning, design, permitting, and construction administration services for a wide range of projects and clients.
