Drinking Water & Reuse


Developed countries take safe drinking water for granted, but it is truly a modern marvel. By staying on top of the most advanced drinking water and reuse treatment technology, we continue to move the industry forward.

Whether it’s designing an advanced water treatment facility or implementing an innovative potable water reuse program or a brackish or seawater desalination plant, we’re not just treating water, we’re giving communities, industries and regions the resource they need to flourish and expand. We are constantly pushing for more innovative and cost-effective solutions to give more people access to safe and abundant water supplies – especially as populations continue to grow around the world, regulations are changing, infrastructure is aging, and there’s a greater need for increased security.

As the No. 2 ranked design firm by Engineering News-Record (ENR) in Water Supply, Water Treatment and Desalination and recipient of the 2015 the Stockholm Industry Water Award for leadership in potable reuse and public acceptance – we’re excited about what we do, the projects we deliver and how these projects are positively impacting communities around the world.

Our integrated comprehensive services, which consider a triple-bottom-line focus and a OneWater mentality, allow us to move complex water projects from concept to completion and operation – successfully delivering the right solutions for our clients.
