Mongolia Water Supply

Water Supply Project for Urban Poor in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia 

The Second Ulaanbaatar Services Improvement Project (USIP2) in the capitol city of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia has the primary objective of improving water supply to the urban poor in a sustainable manner.  The urban poor areas are called “ger” areas by the local people.  Gers are felt-covered tent-like structures that have been used by Mongolians for more than 1,000 years.  Presently, ger residents obtain drinking water by going to kiosks or service stations and carrying the water back in containers.  Residents may have to travel more than 350 meters (1,150 feet) in one direction to get to a kiosk.  The difficulty in obtaining potable water has resulted in an average consumption of 10 liters per capita per day (2.6 gcpd).  The minimum requirement for potable water recommended by the World Health Organization is 20 lpcd (5.3 gpcd). 

Water Project for Energy Clients

Large Energy Companies - Settling Ponds, Dredging, & Water Work


Hard Hat Services (HHS) has been providing water and environmental solutions to a large energy company and its subsidiaries since 2003. HHS has been involved in a variety of projects at 9 separate locations with this client and its subsidiaries.

Our recent experience includes: A geotechnical stability investigation, slurry wall installation, and environmental permitting for the bag house were performed at the Burlington, Iowa location. HHS was involved from start to finish on the design and build of fuel oil piping after detecting a leak at the Ottumwa, Iowa facility. Hard Hat remedied an algae problem in the settling basin at the Marshalltown, Iowa station, and designed and implemented pH adjustment systems for the Clinton and Dubuque, Iowa facilities.

Below are two case studies that capture HHS’s ability to innovate and design sustainable solutions for energy companies.
