Safe water is the foundation of thriving communities, and Black & Veatch is helping to address that need worldwide by producing safe, high-quality water at the tap consistently and cost effectively.
Our knowledge fosters health and wellness, and fulfills one of life's most basic needs for millions of people.
Our treatment facility designs are built upon raw water quality and range from conventional to membrane filtration along with treatment for specific chemical contaminants and various disinfection technologies to meet all current and potential drinking water standards. We’re also on the leading edge of many advanced technologies, including membrane filtration and desalination, and we are leading the industry in advanced disinfection technology, such as ultraviolet disinfection, ozone treatments and hybrid/alternative technologies.
Our technical specialists deliver planning and development support, as well as stand-alone projects. We undertake design-build delivery including the program management, construction, procurement, installation and commissioning of new or upgraded water treatment plants.
Our pioneering work in alternative water supply and treatment solutions is helping to facilitate the technological sharing between both water reuse and desalination. We bring more than 40 years as a worldwide leader in desalination, and our capabilities include membrane, thermal and hybrid designs for both seawater and brackish water sources. In water reuse, Black & Veatch has been at the forefront well before reuse regulations came into play. Our work decades ago provided the basic data for reuse standards.
Water residuals management is another vital aspect of the overall treatment process, and residuals may be organic and inorganic compounds in liquid, solid and gaseous forms. We have expertise in a wide range of treatment processes, including coagulation/filtration, precipitative softening, membrane separation and others.
