Healthy, sustainable water benefits people and the environment. Yet, in many places, we face too little water or too much. Future development depends on the ability to sustainably manage water – to store and distribute clean water and to manage water rights, stormwater, water quality, aquatic habitats, and wetlands.

Our scientists bring an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to water management and conflict resolution.

Our team helps clients navigate water laws at all levels of government, from local and state water rights, conservation requirements, well drilling, and protection of potable water supply to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which regulates the impact of projects on watersheds, water quality, and aquatic habitat at the federal level.

SWCA works closely with clients to provide an array of services and regulatory solutions related to water resources. We can help move your project forward.
