Dewberry, a privately held professional services company, has acquired the assets of Integra Engineering. Dewberry-Integra will continue to operate from Denver, Colorado, expanding Dewberry's western geographic footprint.

"Integra is well-known throughout Colorado for municipal water and wastewater facility engineering," says Dewberry CEO Donald E. Stone, Jr., PE. "We are excited to enhance Dewberry's existing capabilities and commit to this new geography."

Integra Engineering was established in 1995 in Denver. The 26-person company provides planning, design, construction, and operational services for municipal and industrial water and wastewater facilities. Integra Engineering brings unique water treatment technology and large diameter water infrastructure experience to Dewberry's already extensive capabilities.

Integra Engineering has designed innovative technologies including one of the first Actiflo, high-rate sedimentation processes in the United States for Montezuma Water Company in Dolores, Colorado. For the 10-mgd Rueter-Hess Water Purification Facility located in Parker, Colorado, the company designed the first, large-scale ceramic membrane filter systems (CMF) in the United States as well as advanced processes to remove dissolved organic compounds from the drinking water supply. Integra Engineering has completed numerous projects for Colorado Springs Utilities, Denver Water, Left Hand Water District, Parker Water and Sanitation District, Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District, and the cities of Aurora, Boulder, Castle Rock, Greeley, Longmont, and Thornton.

"Dewberry's reputation for client service and for understanding the local issues that affect clients' projects closely matches our culture," says Alan M. Pratt, PE, principal. "We're looking forward to bringing Dewberry's extensive resources to assist us in better serving our clients' needs."

Dewberry's water and wastewater engineering services range from technical and economic feasibility studies to design and operational assistance/optimization for public -and private-sector clients. Dewberry also offers specializations in GIS, environmental and ecological services, environmental permitting, stormwater planning and management, and surveying/mapping.
