Welcome to Fairfax

Fairfax is a thoroughly modern city steeped in our nation’s early history. The Old Fairfax County Courthouse and Fairfax Public School stand proud as new retail, restaurant, and residential developments join our ever-changing downtown streetscape. Civil War re-enactments remain a favorite for some, while others prefer to take a more contemporary approach—learning about the city’s past from atop a Segway.

Our team has engineers, project managers, marketers, business development and client relations staff, and more. Though our roles are varied, there’s one thing we share: a passion for enhancing our community through a range of water and wastewater projects.

Much like our city’s place in American history, our role in improving the world’s water resources reminds us that we are part of something bigger. Recently, our office developed water and sewer models that increase a local authority’s efficiency and minimize service issues. Though local residents never know the details of our work, they experience the benefits when they turn on their taps.
