Plan sheets can vary depending on who creates them and what the purpose of the plan set is. However, there are a few general basics.

Many communities throughout the Midwest suffer from high levels of ammonia in their groundwater. The issues caused by elevated ammonia levels can be overcome if nitrification is achieved. Biological filtration is the process by which bacteria are allowed to naturally complete the nitrification process.

The ways people engage with their communities has changed dramatically in only a few short years.

ESRI’s Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS is an easy to use, hands-on application that lets you create custom web apps without writing a single line of code. After various meetings with the City to determine how to best utilize our services, we concluded that WSB would provide the Electrical Department with a customized ESRI-based web mapping application for editing purposes, implementing the Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS.

Minnesota has a great program to help curb investigation and cleanup costs associated with petroleum releases resulting from tanks and/or tank systems.

Pond Bathymetric Maps
Bathymetry is the underwater depth of a body of water, or the underwater equivalent of topography. Acquiring accurate pond bathymetry is an important step in assessing stormwater pond quality.

What is concrete? The most basic form of concrete is made from cement, water, and aggregates. When the cement and water come in contact with each other, a chemical reaction begins to take place. What happens if the concrete is being placed when the outside air temperature (ambient air temperature) is below freezing? Does that affect the reaction between the water and cement? It sure does.

The Quarry Road Extension Project was a joint project between the Municipal and Landscape Architecture groups within WSB that was also designed in coordination with development in the area. The project included the extension of a 42-foot-wide urban street west from the existing Quarry Road, connecting Central Parkway and Coachman Road.

Chloride Contaminated Effluent (CCE)
Over the past 15 years, or more, the state of Minnesota has directed the focus on a new contaminant that is polluting our water resources – chloride. Chloride Contaminated Effluent (CCE), typically results from snowmelt or light rain mixing with significant amounts of salt used for ice control.

The need to preserve and protect open space continues to grow. With thoughtful consideration in the planning and design process at federal, state, and local levels, a balance can be achieved that will promote improvements to the quality of life for all.
