Water Resources


Population growth, increasing demands for water and energy, reduced water supply reliability, climate uncertainty, extreme weather events, decline in critical ecosystems services, changing regulatory environments and the need for sustainable food security for our global population have created an increased need for integrated, scalable, system-level solutions.

Jacobs is leading the development and implementation of fully integrated solutions to help our clients manage these kinds of complex environmental challenges, where active management of the built and natural components of the water cycle are key to water sustainability. Our engineers, scientists and planners work with clients to improve the well-being of people by identifying solutions to manage risk, protect people and assets, meet regulatory requirements and offer long-term resilience against further variability and change.

As our world struggles with balancing water availability and demands, water pollution, competition for limited water resources and vulnerability to natural hazards, Jacobs works with clients around the globe to better manage our world’s water resources and make our water systems more resilient to climate change – because we believe it’s important that communities have safe, reliable water infrastructure now and in the future.
