Creation of a computer master model that could predict how development will affect flooding was incorporated into this project. 
A dynamic, city-wide, stormwater management tool integrated with their Geographic Information System (G.I.S.) and created to be used on a daily basis by the private and public sectors alike.

WACO LANDFILL PLANNING AND IMPROVEMENTS
CITY OF WACO, TEXAS

Scope of Work: TWG was retained to prepare a permit modification that would increase the size of the individual cells, reduce construction cost, and increase operational efficiency.

TWG has also been successful in assisting the City with new operational procedures which have helped to increase the life of the landfill by increasing the densification of the waste. The Master Plan calls for 8 cells with the total life of the landfill lasting 34 years. To date, TWG has designed 3 of these cells.
