Water Resources

Addressing today’s toughest challenges in water resources management, water quality protection, and coastal sciences

To protect the world’s water resources and promote integrated management solutions, we quantify water supply risk under a range of future conditions, including changing patterns in climate, land use, and water use. Findings from our studies allow clients to identify and prioritize water allocation decisions and risk mitigation actions and provide action plans for more sustainable uses of water.

In the area of water quality protection, we work with agencies and utilities to help them meet the requirements of the Clean Water Act. We integrate geospatial mapping, data management and manipulation, and environmental modeling to tailor assessment and reporting methods to client needs. The resulting framework enables state and EPA regional organizations to improve assessment processes and provide meaningful information to the public.

We collaborate with numerous federal, state, and international agencies to better understand coastal and marine processes and promote a sustainable marine environment. Our coastal sciences experts support clients with coastal and near-shore environmental measurement and monitoring, decision support system development, marine water quality management, environmental and fisheries resource economics, ecosystem management, coastal and marine systems modeling, marine vessel discharge analysis, and more.
