Your Solution for Wet Infrastructure Projects
The climate and geography of California present many challenges to the management and delivery of water.
Water and energy issues are very closely connected. Pumping and treating water requires energy, and energy costs money. Conserving water conserves energy–and saves money.
At a minimum, the United States uses the equivalent of 520 billion kilowatt hours per year–equivalent to 13% of the nation’s total electricity use–to pump, heat and treat water. Here in California – 20% of all electricity used in state was used to supply and treat water. With demand for water and energy in Southern California constantly growing, the costs of this “Water-Energy Nexus” must be managed, in part, by engineering smarter and greener wet infrastructure solutions.
Due to the relationship between water and energy consumption, the total cost of ownership must be carefully considered–including installation costs, operation & maintenance costs, ROI and numerous sustainability factors. Failure to adequately consider any of these factors can result in huge expenses to the agency and consumers down the road.
When budgets are tight and every approved project is too critical to fail, it only makes sense to choose an experienced and detail-minded firm to make sure it’s done right. Krieger & Stewart has demonstrated over the past 40 years that it has what it takes to do it right.
