Water Supply

At Wenck, we take your right to the use of water seriously. We understand the importance of adequate water supply to meet your needs. Our team includes a former chief engineer and state regulators that have been involved in literally thousands of water right proceedings. We understand the water right process and have worked closely with engineers, attorneys, tribes and sovereign nations, and state water rights programs. Our team regularly assists clients with water rights issues on storage, diversion and intake design projects, and hydrologic studies related to quantification of surface and groundwater sources. We can help you identify and evaluate a potential water supply, complete the water right application or petition process, navigate the regulatory maze, and represent your interests in court as an expert witness. Our team has the experience you need to ensure your water right is realized and protected.

Water Resources

We understand the balance between all the demands on water. We solve problems holistically taking our clients’ business into consideration providing solutions that often turn a liability into a significant business opportunity.


Wenck knows that the generation of wastewater is an inevitable result of daily life and industrial processes. We help our clients protect public health and the environment while maintaining regulatory compliance. Our designs range from on-site cluster systems to complex industrial or municipal systems. We understand that preferred discharge methods depend on the unique nature of every project, and our seasoned staff is well-versed in all methods including soil dispersal, spray irrigation, and surface water discharge. You can count on us for cost-effective professional services for any project.

Surface Water

Wenck is an industry leading, innovative provider of surface water services and has completed riverine projects in over 21 states as well as Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Our surface water studies are designed to meet the needs of our clients while also protecting the health and integrity of the water body and watershed. Prior to design, our engineers and fluvial geomorphologists complete river stability studies recognizing that the evaluation of historic fluvial behavior is the key to future prediction. Combining geomorphology with strong engineering practices allows us to provide clients with “natural solutions” that are not only cost effective, but also require little oversight and management. Wenck is also well versed in bioengineering methods for stream restoration and has successfully completed projects on river reaches with sensitive, threatened, and endangered listed species.
