Thanks to industrialization and urbanization, the way we manage and even think about wastewater has evolved.
While we didn’t invent today’s modern sewerage systems, we understand that water – even wastewater – is a precious resource and not something we should simply dispose of; and therefore, we take the total water cycle into consideration when engineering solutions and developing cutting-edge technologies to collect, reclaim and reuse wastewater.
What others might still consider waste, we see as a resource. In a capital-constrained and resource-constrained world, this is more important than ever. Utilities, industries and water-scarce regions that are implementing water reuse schemes and water systems capable of recovering energy, carbon and nutrients – like Australia’s Kooragang Island Water Scheme or Denmark’s Ejby Molle net-positive energy wastewater treatment plant – recognize the value of conserving water, optimizing their operations and reducing their energy and carbon footprint.
Since 2006, Engineering News-Record (ENR) has ranked CH2M as the #1 overall design firm in Sewer/Wastewater Treatment and #2 in its Top 225 International Design Firms for Sewerage and Solid Waste, as well as Wastewater Treatment Plants.
