Water management has become a great concern to municipalities. With population growth and a decline in water resources, local agencies have been prioritizing efficient water resource management and seeking solutions to reduce consumption and loss.
WSP takes a holistic and sustainable approach to managing and minimizing the use of natural resources. We support governments, investors, developers, manufacturers, utilities, and corporations worldwide by mitigating risks, meeting regulatory requirements, reducing the cost of resource use and disposal, and creating strategies for a sustainable future.
Complete Services for Any Water Project
Our experts consider water implications across the entire development cycle, providing a complete perspective to enable efficient and effective designs. We identify issues in the early stages to optimize usage, spatial and master planning, to maximize land value, minimize project costs, and deliver sustainable long-term solutions for communities. Our water resource and maritime engineering specialists can also support your project.
Preserving Water Assets, Infrastructure, and Supply
WSP works with authorities, utilities, and developers to preserve, manage, and improve water assets, infrastructure, and supply. Our advisory services include water quality and pollution, the design of mitigation and restoration solutions, and continuous monitoring programs.
We also assess the health and status of wetlands and water-based ecosystems and devise innovative wetland management techniques, as well as designing water infrastructure and treatment plants. From renewables to traditional sources, we support hydropower facilities, offshore wind farms, and associated harbour engineering and water desalination plants.
Innovative Tools to Increase Efficiency
The scarcity and cost of water has made it a critical business issue. WSP has developed innovative end-to-end water footprinting and measurement techniques to visually display water profiles, thus highlighting the water-intense areas of a business, particularly when drawing water from regions where it is scarce. Our efficiency programs focus on areas where it can make the biggest material impact.
Efficiency programs for buildings may include rainwater harvesting, improved storm water management, groundwater resource replenishment, and holistic water re-use. We assess water use in the design, manufacturing, distribution, and consumption of products. Our green product design experts and online tools help reduce water use across product life cycles. We can also measure and implement efficiencies across entire organizations and their associated supply chains.
