Municipal Engineering


JEA has been applying its expertise in municipal engineering to important projects on Vancouver Island for over 60 years.




 
Municipal engineering focuses on municipal infrastructure, which generally involves specifying, designing, constructing, and maintaining roadways, sidewalks, water supply networks, sewers, street lighting, municipal solid waste management and disposal, public parks and cycling infrastructure.

Where underground utility networks are concerned, it may also include the civil portion (conduits and access chambers) of the local distribution networks of electrical and telecommunications services. It can also include the optimizing of garbage collection and bus service networks.

Some of these disciplines overlap with other civil engineering specialities, however, municipal engineering looks at optimizing the coordination of these infrastructure networks and services, as they are often built at the same time (for a given street or development project), and managed by the same municipal authority.
 

Municipal Engineering Services

  • Feasibility studies, where we will review site serviceability to provide information to municipalities for planning future growth or infill development within the neighbourhood
  • Asset management studies to determine the existing condition, replacement values, maintenance plans and replacement plans for municipal infrastructure and equipment
  • Infrastructure capacity studies and planning to review the capacity and condition of the water, wastewater and stormwater systems and plan for growth and future development
  • Preliminary and conceptual designs to review servicing and provide recommendations for current and future growth
  • Development and servicing agreements between developers and municipalities to maintain the municipality’s standards. As part of this, levies can be determined based on plans for future growth to ensure municipalities are able to provide amenities, such as parks, roadways, stormwater retention, waste and wastewater distribution and treatment as growth takes place
