  • Our focus is to deliver our clients the most cost-effective wastewater treatment systems when they don’t have access to a municipal sewer system.   
  • Acquired numerous permit issued by TCEQ throughout Central Texas
  • Completed permitting, design, and construction management of decentralized wastewater treatment facilities throughout the United States including, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Georgia.

Jamie Miller

Jamie Miller, PE


Jamie began her career in 1996 as a design engineer. In 2005 she went to work for a construction company that focused on decentralized wastewater. In building an engineering group, she elevated the company to a design-build firm. In 2010 permitting and design in Texas became a key focus. Developing excellent working relationships with the TCEQ, utility districts, and local developers, she has established herself as a decentralized wastewater expert in Texas. With so much travel to Texas, it was fitting that her oldest child graduated from Texas A&M in Electrical Engineering. She is the proud mother of three children.
