HERITAGE TECHNICAL SERVICES, INC. offers cost-effective hydrology, civil engineering, and environmental engineering consulting to varying clients in the private and public sectors, including expert witness services for many different types of water, wastewater, hazardous waste, stormwater, and air issues. Personal attention, proven approaches, and a broad understanding of relevant issues are the foundation used to successfully fulfill the necessary objectives for each specific client. In the process, Heritage minimizes the burden clients experience due to their responsibility for hydrology and environmental engineering issues while allowing them to retain control.  Despite the generally narrow technical focus of Heritage and that it is unusual for attorneys to have more than one case within Chuck Dutill's expertise, combined with Heritage having cases in over 30 states, Heritage has had 3 clients for more than 25 years, 7 other clients for 15 to 24 years, and 12 other clients for 5 to 14 years, from the commencement of to the conclusion of services or the current time, as appropriate.

The firm provides timely, efficient solutions by working with owners, regulators, law firms, and the public in a personal yet professional way. As a small firm, Heritage also has the capability of working comfortably with traditional engineering or architectural firms on specialty aspects of significant projects involving hydrology, stormwater management, flooding, drainage, runoff, sewer systems, sanitary sewage, wastewater treatment, backups, overflows, detention, septic systems, surface water, groundwater, hydrogeology, erosion, grading, modeling, pumping, hydraulics, and floodplain issues.

Heritage effectively conducts each phase of expert witness cases from the initial investigation to expert reports, depositions, and testimony, as well as each phase of projects from planning through design to operations assistance. The firm provides expert witness services to law firms, insurance companies, municipalities/authorities, state and federal government, industry, developers, design firms, contractors, utilities, pollution control companies, individuals, transportation companies, water/amusement parks, and other types of entities.
Heritage provides a clear way through the maze of environmental and hydrology factors because its approach combines engineering with personalized advice and strategy. Ongoing client satisfaction for project consulting is demonstrated by the high degree of repeat work (45%) and work generated by client referrals (30%).
Heritage Technical Services is a team of professionals who listen to needs, understand issues, and use generally accepted engineering principles. As a result, difficult problems are solved because hydrology and environmental engineering challenges are met in a personalized fashion.
