Residents and a proposed campground located adjacent to Darien Lake Theme Park Resort (formerly Six Flags Darien Lake) had little to no quantity of well water which also was of poor quality. Mountain Engineering coordinated the efforts to extend public water to this area of the Town of Darien. The cost of the project was $265,000. Services provided for this project were preliminary design, water district formation, design, permitting, funding and construction administration.
The Village of Oakfield was spending over $50,000 annually on their sludge handling and disposal at the Wastewater Treatment Facility. Mountain Engineering proposed a "green" alternative and innovative solution to their needs and helped secure funding for a new Reed Bed Sludge Treatment System. The funding secured was from the first round of the Green Innovative Grant Program. 90% of the project was funded by a grant with only $10,000 of local money required. The project was a huge success and is currently saving the Village $46,500 annually from their previous system. Mountain Engineering provided grant application and administration, design, permitting, bidding, construction administration andinspection services.

In July of 2009, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation enacted new Dam Safety Regulations. The United States Gypsum Company (USG) retained Mountain Engineering to assist them in complying with the new regulations. Mountain Engineering developed an operation and maintenance plan for USG's 120 million gallon reservoir dam. This document provides USG with a long term operation, monitoring, inspection, maintenance, notification procedures and staff training plan.
In addition, Mountain Engineering developed an Emergency Action Plan for USG in the event of a dam failure. This plan was developed in coordination with the Towns of Alabama and Oakfield, Village of Oakfield and the Genesee County Emergency Management Office.
