Water

The perfect storm for infrastructure managers has arrived—increased regulations, reduced funding, aging wet infrastructure and a focus on sustainability. Woolpert has worked with many of the nation’s largest cities, counties and utilities to improve the way they plan, design, operate and manage their assets. Our team is structured around our clients’ needs; this unique structure enables us to approach water regulatory compliance issues from a truly integrated perspective. We combine expertise in wastewater and stormwater management with advancements in asset management to arrive at the forefront of a new engineering paradigm.
