Supply & Resource Protection

Jones & Henry offers the services you need for your water supply.

Working with communities across the Midwest, we perform alternative source studies, hydrogeologic studies, multi-source investigations, raw water conveyance studies, reservoir siting and design, resource evaluation and development, supply augmentation evaluations, and yield analyses.



From conception through completion, Jones & Henry provides comprehensive services associated with groundwater development.

Jones & Henry offers a variety of services related to the groundwater industry.
  • Aquifer Analysis (Pump Test Evaluation)
  • Field Representation During Well Construction
  • Fracture Trace Analysis
  • Geophysical Investigations
  • Groundwater Source Investigation
  • Modeling Groundwater Pollution & Remediation
  • Well & Pump Design
  • Wellfield Design/Evaluation
Surface Water

Jones & Henry provides the services you need for one of your most vital assets: surface water. Our projects include stream and lake intakes, raw water and low service pumping, and on-stream and upground reservoirs.

  • River and lake intakes
  • Raw water and low service pumping
  • On-stream and upground reservoirs
Resource Protection

Jones & Henry assists water utilities with developing resource protection programs that are tailored to fit the needs and capabilities of each community.


Design of Treatment Facilities

Jones & Henry uses over 90 years of engineering experience to determine the most appropriate processes to use in designing a treatment plant. Our staff considers local desires, economics, raw water characteristics, available space, and future needs in developing the concepts to provide communities with reasonably-priced, high-quality water.

Our experience includes the design of extensive plant renovations and expansions, as well as new plants. Services include:

  • Source Water Analysis and Layout
  • Process Selection and Layout
  • Alternative Solution Development
  • Cost Evaluations
  • Renovation, Retrofitting, and Expansion
  • Complete Plant Design


Development of Treatment Alternatives and Options

Our experienced staff will evaluate process options and recommend specific alternatives to meet your local needs. Whether the problem is caused by excessive iron and manganese, volatile organic compounds, radionuclides, hardness, or other contaminants, cost-effective solutions can be engineered – and it’s our goal to find them.


Locating a plentiful water supply and properly treating it are not the only water-related challenges encountered by communities; you need to address distribution and storage, as well.

Jones & Henry has helped many communities develop distribution and water storage systems through a thorough analysis of hydraulics and system capabilities. We have designed underground, ground level, and elevated water storage reservoirs.


Distribution & Storage

Jones & Henry has analyzed numerous distribution systems and has recommended needed improvements such as water line extensions and reinforcement, elevated and ground storage, and pressure boosting.

Our reports typically include a node map of the distribution network and a prioritized listing of recommended improvements with their associated estimated cost.

We use computer models to analyze system hydraulics and to evaluate system capabilities.

Our water distribution system services include:

  • Field testing of system pressure and flows
  • Distribution system modeling
  • Analysis of present and projected future conditions
  • Prioritizing improvements
  • Cost estimating
  • Water line design


Pumping and Storage

Our water distribution and storage engineering services help ensure that sufficient water is transmitted at adequate pressure to every point in the system. As a result, maximum-day, maximum-hour, and fire flow conditions are all met with safety and reserve.

These services include:

  • Storage volume evaluations
  • Pump station reviews
  • High service pumping
  • Complete facilities design
  • Pump station reviews
  • Site and storage tank selections
  • Pressure boosting
  • Water hammer analysis and control
