The major factors which distinguish Deere & Ault from other water resource engineering firms are both the depth and the scope of experience of the professional staff on water resource projects, dams, reservoirs, and conveyance facilities. Moreover, our staff has worked together on numerous successful projects and has solved many difficult permitting, design, and construction issues in the process. We have taken many projects from the conceptual phase through alternative and feasibility studies, design, and ultimately construction.
