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.

RWE Renewables, a global energy company, constructed a 75-turbine, 250 MW onshore wind electric generation facility between 2019 and 2021. It went into commercial operation in June 2021. The project includes Siemens Gamesa turbines and is RWE’s first onshore wind project in Ohio. It has the capacity to provide clean energy for more than 60,000 households.

Verdantas was selected to provide civil engineering design, land surveying, ODOT and County roadway permitting, surface water delineations and ecological surveys, SPCC plan preparation, Decommissioning Plan preparation, Ohio EPA construction stormwater permit and Stormwater Pollution prevention Plan (SWP3) preparation, surface water permitting, storm water inspections during construction, and ecological specialist services during construction.

Temporary intersection improvements were designed for turbine blades that were up to 211 feet long and weighed 31,200 pounds. The nacelle units weighed 250,000 pounds. The project study area included approximately 50 square miles (31,986 acres) and required approximately 38 miles of new access roads and approximately 75 miles of electrical collection lines.
