Water Resources

Water — it’s essential to meeting our most basic needs. It’s also vital to a strong economy, vibrant communities, industrial and agricultural production, and serves as the foundation of our natural world.

Water resource needs vary widely across businesses, geographies, regulatory frameworks, and stakeholder requirements. The challenge is finding responsible ways to economically source, secure, supply, utilize, and reuse water to balance the ever-growing demand in today’s world. Whether its potable water supply, agricultural and industrial production, or ecological and environmental health, EHS Support is committed to helping you manage your water resource needs in a sustainable, responsible, cost-efficient manner that’s in the best interest of your organization.

Water Sourcing, Supply & Security

Water Sourcing, Supply & Security

Fundamental components of water resource projects, such as identifying resource quantity and quality, knowledge of applicable regulatory requirements, potential threats to the resource, and real or perceived effects on stakeholder groups, can present challenges for any organization. At EHS Support, we provide comprehensive water resource services to address the administrative, technical, security, compliance, and communication challenges associated with implementing water sourcing and supply projects.

Water Quality & Restoration

Water Quality & Restoration

EHS Support has significant experience regarding water-quality assessments and the implementation of practical strategies across watersheds, groundwater basins, rivers, wetlands, and lake/reservoir systems. From baseline assessments to geochemical modeling and assimilative capacity demonstrations, our expertise in risk evaluations, environmental chemistry, ecology, governmental negotiations, and regulations are focused on delivering a right-size solution for your organizational needs.

Ecologic & Natural Resource Preservation

Ecologic & Natural Resource Preservation

Understanding complex natural systems and the vital role water plays in supporting these systems is integral to the assessment and restoration of ecological functions. Leveraging our experience, technical skills, and partnerships with industry and academic experts, we simplify and clearly communicate challenges, analyze and examine interdependencies, and provide information necessary to inform decision making and to implement real-world solutions for both the human and natural environment.

Natural Resource Damages

Natural Resource Damages

We have considerable experience developing Natural Resource Damage Assessments (NRDAs) and negotiating settlements for clients. This requires forensic analysis of natural losses associated with urbanization and past contributions of other industries compared to current observations. Working closely with industry regulators, we successfully develop, negotiate, and implement practical alternatives for remediation, rehabilitation, and restoration of sediment, surface/groundwater, and wetland systems.

Flood Control, Coastal Resiliency, & Saline Intrusion

Flood Control, Coastal Resiliency, & Saline Intrusion

Urbanization, climate change, and sea-level rise contribute to issues of flood control, coastal inundation and erosion, and saline intrusion of surface/groundwater resources. Human impacts and natural occurrences are a major focus of future planning and regulatory requirements. EHS Support is a leader in strategic environmental planning and management services, flood mitigation, identification of potential water-quality concerns, planning and design of stormwater controls, and recharge facilities.

Operational Studies

Operational Studies

A key consideration across industries is minimizing the potential for degradation through risk assessment and best management practices. Our extensive experience involving operational studies in water conservation, water supply alternatives, and identification of beneficial uses for both produced and effluent waters has resulted in practical, implementable, and cost-effective solutions for our customers that minimize waste, maximize operational efficiency, and benefit our surrounding communities.

GIS and Data Management Services

GIS and Data Management Services

Data and data management are core components of effective water-management strategies. Whether it’s developing real-time data collection capabilities coupled with geographic information systems (GIS), workflows that integrate information and data across teams, eliminating redundancies, streamlining and automating output and analyses (without compromising quality assurance and quality control), we provide the information you need to assess conditions and allow for rapid decision making across your organizational structure.
