Expanding to Municipalities

During the 1980’s, Hydro Engineering became a general contractor for municipal wastewater treatment systems. After working in the municipal industry, Hydro Engineering saw a need to develop products and equipment to not only help with wastewater treatment but also water transfer and emergency response.

Also in the 1980’s, Hydro Engineering became a dealer for Lindsay irrigation equipment. As a Lindsay Zimmatic dealer, Hydro’s irrigation division offers a complete package to Hydro’s customers through sales, installation & service of pivot irrigation systems, high capacity wells, and pumping equipment.
