The definition of “planning” is the act or process of making or carrying out plans, and more specifically the establishment of goals, policies or procedures. If the goal or “target” is not established, then we are just a wondering generality in society. At Cowan Group Engineering we view planning as the basis for many types of projects including, but not limited to, land planning, water planning, wastewater planning, transportation planning, and capital improvement planning. The results of planning can be accomplished through simple technical memorandums up to formal report documents. Also, the documents provide the client with a goal or “target” for a specific project or entire city and can be referenced for future leaders. CGE has been involved in several types of planning that range from city planning, funding, land planning, water & wastewater master plans, transportation planning and more.

Drinking water is one of the most precious commodities and resources that any community has throughout the world. Drinking water is vital to the commerce, business and industry of a community’s everyday life, as well as the health and welfare of a community and its success.
