Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam Inc.

Newport Municipal Utility District, which provides water, sanitary sewer and drainage services to 12,000 residents in Harris County, Texas, about 23 miles northeast of the Houston central business district, selected civil engineering firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam Inc. (LAN) as its district engineer.

To serve its residents, the District operates a 2.5-million-gallon-a-day (MGD) surface water plant, two ground water plants, 25 single-family residential subdivisions, a 1.3 MGD wastewater treatment plant, three detention ponds, and parks and trail systems.

As the district engineer, LAN will provide planning, design, inspection and construction administration services related to the development of these facilities. Additionally, the firm will review construction plans related to the ongoing subdivision development, prepare engineering reports to support bond issues used to finance system improvements, and provide guidance and counsel to the board of directors on engineering matters. LAN will join a team of professionals assisting the District, including lawyers, financial advisors, tax assessors, operators and bookkeepers.

At ultimate buildout, the District will serve 17,000 people.

“Due to a surge in homebuilding over the last few years, the District has been working hard to expand its water and wastewater facilities,” said Bill Rosenbaum, P.E., LAN’s vice president. “We are looking forward to working with the District to help plan and implement improvements that will benefit its residents.”

A full-service consulting firm, LAN offers planning, engineering and program management services for the nation’s heavy civil infrastructure needs. LAN is a LEO A DALY company, an international architecture and engineering firm.
