Industry Leading Innovation


The Water sector has been Goodwin Brothers’ specialty, our passion and our expertise for the past 50 years. With water being a finite resource, the impacts of our work are far reaching.

Goodwin Brothers has been a leader in improving and modernizing water treatment infrastructure.

Today, Goodwin Brothers’ 3rd generation is further modernizing water infrastructure put in place by our trailblazing 2nd generation. As industry leaders in this sector, we have solidified a long lasting legacy of clean water for generations to come.

Early in Goodwin Brothers’ second generation, the young brothers decided to expand into the construction of water projects. With sweeping amendments to the Clean Water Act in 1972 the brothers saw an opportunity to expand the business that their father founded. The third generation has further expanded the brothers’ vision into larger, more complex projects using different delivery methods.

Since the early 1970s, Goodwin Brothers has focused on the water sector and performed hundreds of millions of dollars in projects. From new greenfield facilities to $100 million plus expansions, Goodwin Brothers has the people, equipment and know-how that only comes with doing this work for over 50 years. We get a great deal of satisfaction at Goodwin Brothers knowing that our projects have improved the water quality for millions of people for generations to come.
