What We Do

Tom Hickman, P.E., Director of Public Works, City of Bend, Oregon

“I would strongly recommend anyone considering undertaking an optimization project to engage WCS Engineering. We knew that Optimatics software in the wrong hands would lead us to results that were no more helpful than using traditional hydraulic modeling tools. WCS helped develop the confidence needed of our citizen committee, and more importantly, produced very real and defensible results saving our community over $40M of capital investment.”
