About Water Planning

From water supply and water reuse studies to water and wastewater master plans, our team provides the information and analysis that utilities need to make prudent investments in water and wastewater infrastructure. We carefully evaluate our clients’ future needs, identify supply and infrastructure alternatives to serve those needs, and help our clients select the best alternatives - based not only on the cost in dollars but also based on social, environmental, technical, and legal considerations. As engineers, our obligation to the public extends to helping our clients make efficient use of the resources that they already have. This is where our extensive experience and unique strengths in water reuse, water conservation, and asset management set us apart.
