The Company provides construction solutions for the responsible management of water in any industry or environment. With heavy civil expertise and safety, it designs and construct comprehensive, end-to-end water management systems, as well as individual intakes, reservoirs, pump stations, pipelines and plants tailored to its clients' needs. Its geotechnical capabilities allow it to improve soil conditions and support subterranean structures in underground construction projects where effective water management is critical, such as dams and levees, tunnels, water lines, subways, highways and marine facilities. Construction solutions include: geotechnical construction, tunnels and shafts, marine construction, alternative delivery, pump stations and intake structures, reservoirs, treatment plant construction, pipeline construction, sewer pipeline rehabilitation, renewable energy, anaerobic digestion systems, well design and construction and Ranney collector wells. The Company provides turnkey drilling solutions for water management, mineral exploration and specialty drilling needs. It also drills deep injection wells to facilitate the disposal of treated wastewater. Its mineral exploration teams extract contaminant-free samples that accurately reflect the underlying mineral deposits. Drilling solutions include: reverse circulation drilling, diamond core drilling, large diameter core drilling, hammer drilling, dual wall percussion drilling, flooded reverse circulation drilling, dual rotary casing advance drilling, rotary air blast drilling, mud rotary drilling, directional drilling, specialty drilling, resonant sonic drilling, well drilling, borehole and surface geophysics, borehole surveying, oil and gas services and stuck pipe recovery. Its customers include government agencies, investor-owned utilities, industrial companies, global mining companies, consulting engineering firms, heavy civil construction contractors, oil and gas companies, power companies and agribusiness. Competition for its Water Resources Division's bundled services are local and regional specialty general contractors, while its competition in the water well drilling business consists of small, local water well drilling operations and some larger regional competitors.
