- Subsurface utility engineering
- Geotechnical investigation
- Preparation of construction documents

Woolpert reviewed CCTV video and smoke testing reports, evaluated the gravity sewer networks and prepared a comprehensive reporting of existing conditions. Woolpert then conducted topographic surveys and underground utility verifications throughout the subdivisions and performed a boundary survey at the proposed pump station location.

Finally, Woolpert prepared all the necessary construction drawings and technical specifications for the improvements, obtained Florida Department of Environmental Protection permits for water and wastewater systems, and served as the bidding and construction administrator.
