Since 1993, CHS has completed hundreds of projects for both public and private clients. We provide a full spectrum of services for wastewater collection and treatment systems, pump, lift and booster stations, water transmission, distribution and treatment systems, reservoirs, storm water drainage/retention, roadway design, site surveys, boundary line adjustments, easement acquisition and other related work.
CHS has led the design, survey and construction management of multi-million dollar projects and our efforts have been instrumental in bringing projects to completion, on-time and on-budget. CHS clients include cities, towns, special-purpose districts, private water purveyors, and land development companies. In addition to the breadth of expertise in-house, CHS has established successful relationships with other local consultants (environmental, financial, electrical, structural, geotechnical, odor control, etc.) and can assemble a complete team of professionals to comprehensively address our clients’ needs and project challenges.

Rodney Langer, P.E.Principal
firstname.lastname@example.org | Rodney was born in Spokane and then lived in Seattle until the late 1960s before the Boeing decline led the family to move to the Southwest. He was raised in Tucson, AZ, and was active and held leadership positions in his church youth group and Boy Scouts, including achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Rodney completed his education with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (University of Arizona – Go Wildcats!). While in school Rodney worked as a draftsman for a local civil engineering firm. Moving back to Washington in 1992, Rodney went to work for Scott Christensen and was one of the first employees at CHS. Rodney’s professional experience of over 25 years and 30 years in consulting services includes both new and rehabilitation work for municipal water and sewer systems. Specific areas of focus including planning, project management and lift or pump station rehabilitation. In 2002 Rodney earned a Graduate Certificate in Project Management. Rodney and his wife Karen have two children making the transition from college to work. When not at the office, Rodney tries to keep up with his wife Karen while running, helping out at church, enjoying time with friends and wondering if he will ever get working on that project taking up space in the garage – a weathered yellow 1970 Beetle.
