Due to the microbrew beer boom in recent years, the areas between Homedale, Wilder, Greenleaf, and Parma, Idaho have seen a lot of fields converted to hops in the last five years. Once hops are harvested, they must be separated from the vine (or picked), dried, and baled. Some beers used these dried hops in their beers, some use pelletized hops, where the dried hops are compressed into about 1/3 of their normal size.
T-O wants to give Joe Guenther a Warm Welcome!

T-O was involved in working on diversion channels, erosion control and other miscellaneous civil design and surveying work for the contractor of the Dixie Drain Phosphorous Removal Facility in Parma, Idaho which officially opens on Wednesday.

T-O Engineers is grateful to have been a part of the I-84 Meridian Road Interchange project, recently selected as the ASCE Region 8 Project of the Year. Working with Parametrix and the Idaho Transportation Department, T-O oversaw all of the survey, right-of-way, utilities, and hydraulics of the project while working within a very tight deadline. Our team members, Steve Frisbie, Harvin Flores, Dave Sterling, Steve Holt, and Rob O’Malley, all played very large roles in making this a successful project and we want to congratulate them on the recognition and award as well.
We are excited to have been awarded a project as a sub-consultant with AECOM! We will be working on an ITD District 6 mill and inlay project, stretching just over a mile of US-91 in Shelley, Idaho. T-O will be responsible for Mapping and Right-of-Way Surveying, providing complete base mapping and existing right-of-way development for the entire project as well as preparation of right-of-way plans, fee and easement parcel acquisition descriptions, parcel appraisal staking, and record of survey. Construction will begin in late 2019, and we cannot wait to get started!
We are ecstatic to announce that T-O has been chosen by the City of Kuna to complete a collections master plan for the entire growth area! Though the city has only a population of 20,000, they have the second largest sewer system planning area in the state of Idaho, being second only to Boise, so this will be a great opportunity for our company. We want to give a special thank you to our very own Rich Wiebe who played a huge role in getting T-O this amazing project.
