Our water resource experts are helping clients meet challenges posed by the increasing imbalance between water supply and demand, driven by extreme drought and/or flooding events, and exacerbated by the effects of climate change.
By exploring in-region water management and water transfer opportunities, Jacobs is able to advise on the most efficient and effective surface and groundwater solutions during front end strategy and planning, while also providing continual support through feasibility, engineering and construction.
Our global teams are active in sharing best practices and ideas, helping to improve water quality by combining innovative treatment processes with safe, maintainable engineering solutions that incorporate off-site build technology.
As it relates to collection and distribution systems, our goal is to help preserve existing infrastructure by guiding and implementing prioritized rehabilitation of aging assets. Jacobs uses up-to-date asset location and condition data to plan, design, schedule, and manage the execution of capital improvement projects. We understand regulatory requirements and limits, and are able to help develop a common-sense program that reduces infiltration/inflow and controls overflows.
