Water Distribution System; Modeling, Master Planning and Consulting

Project Summary:

Project Type:
Water Distribution System Modeling, Planning, and Consulting

Moorhead Public Service, Moorhead, MN


Apex Engineering Group has a long history of working with Moorhead Public Service (MPS) on many aspects of their water supply, distribution and treatment system. A task order contract between MPS and Apex has been in place since 2013 to assist with water distribution system modeling and master planning services.

Members of the Apex Team have trained MPS personnel on the intricacies of their modeling software. The use of their model has been a powerful tool from a planning, rehabilitation and operational standpoint – saving significant time, manpower and money.

To date, much of the task order modeling and consulting work has centered on new commercial and residential development occurring within the city. Modeling analysis for adequate fire flow and pressure has been the focus of recent work.

Project Details:

In 2018, Apex was hired to complete a comprehensive water distribution system master plan. Part of the project includes field testing and updating the current water distribution system model.

Members of the Apex team developed and calibrated the original Moorhead water distribution model back in 2009 while employed with another engineering firm. We also authored the previous master plan study in 2006.
