Dover, ID

Dover Bay is a 360-acre development on the Pend Oreille River southwest of Sandpoint, Idaho. JAS has provided engineering services to Dover Bay for water storage, water distribution, and wastewater collection and treatment, which began in 2003. Dover is comprised of predominantly high-end recreational homes that require full water, sewer, and irrigation service. The many multi-family living units also require high fire flow service.

As part of the development process, JAS, in conjunction with Esvelt Environmental Engineering (EEE), provided design and construction management services to upgrade and expand the City of Dover wastewater treatment plant. The project included an upgrade of the previous SBR process to a Membrane Bioreactor process and an expansion of the plant from a capacity of 300 ERU (60,000 GPD) to 1,000 ERU capacity (200,000 GPD). The project also included the construction of a new control/laboratory building and the construction of two new sludge holding tanks. The improvements were designed to provide the appearance of a modern farm so as to blend with the residential environment of the Dover Bay Development. This $6M project was completed in 2009. We continue to provide support services and additional engineering services to the City of Dover relative to this project.

JAS provided all aspects of the engineering required for the development of Dover Bay Planned Unit Development.

By illustration but not limitation it included engineering and understanding of water and sewer services, thoughtful consideration of wetland impacts and proper design for them, floodplain, FEMA, transportation impact studies, road design, structural, geotechnic, design of the city and water expansions for our project. JAS coordinated specialty engineering firms when needed. For example, our state-of-the-art membrane WWTP 6 million dollar city expansion. JAS knew when to bring in specialty engineers.

JAS also provided all surveying and the complicated platting for the DB PUD. They professionally and patiently worked through hundreds of iterations of homesite layouts.

JAS has been an integral part of our Community for the last 20 years.
