Committed to building a healthier, cleaner, and more sustainable and resilient future.

Climate and weather extremes have been making headlines more frequently and will continue to do so unless we consciously and rapidly reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. As we implement more sustainable measures to meet our energy needs we must be adaptable and prepared for the impacts of climate change and sea level rise.

Verdantas’ engineers and scientists are passionate about creating resilient designs that protect our coastal communities and natural resources, conserve water, use renewable energy, and reduce wastes.

Mandated to eliminate wastewater stream discharge for compliance with the Inland Bays Total Maximum Daily Load, The Town of Millsboro embraced an innovative solution based on recycling, rather than disposal, of high quality treated effluent. The recycled water is used to recharge the local aquifer through seven rapid infiltration basins (RIBS).  With a capacity of 1.2 MGD, Millsboro’s RIBs are the largest municipal system in Delaware.  RIB systems require less land and have lower long term operating costs than wastewater disposal systems using irrigation.  Hydrogeological testing has demonstrated that the performance of Millsboro’s RIB system exceeds the original design criteria.

The City of Philadelphia was more progressive than most older northeastern cities when addressing confined sewer overflow issues that are typical of aging and outdated underground infrastructures. Instead of the usual downgradient treatment plants, they decided to capture and infiltrate rainwater near the source, thereby mitigating flows into the already full sewers which were leaking into their streams and rivers. Such an undertaking relies not only on one big project, but on a multitude of smaller successes. Verdantas has been working with the City for over a decade, initially in reviewing private sector plans for upgrading detention and infiltration opportunities, to working with the City for the identification and design of City projects for the same purpose.

  • Our municipality has utilized Verdantas as a consultant for capital projects involving the repair and replacement of its aging water and sewer infrastructure. They have provided initial engineering, design and construction management. The accuracy and thoroughness of their plans has resulted in capital projects that have consistently finished on time and within budget without unexpected change orders.
