To better understand the systems and develop tailored solutions, we use the most advanced and effective technology available, including geographic information systems (GIS), condition assessment techniques and rehabilitation technologies. Our extensive background in stormwater management also includes: Hydrologic, hydraulic and water quality modeling and training. Flow analysis, including infiltration and inflow (I/I). Regulatory review. Maintenance management. Black & Veatch’s integrated stormwater and wastewater solutions go farther than traditional management. We strive to resourcefully handle what is typically considered a nuisance and capitalize on the potential to create multiple benefits from wet-weather facilities. In addition to green and gray infrastructure solutions to tackle combined and sanitary sewer overflows and flooding, we engineered state-of-the-art high-rate treatment facilities as they first evolved, and we continue to do so as they advance to next generation systems.

Aging infrastructure is primarily to blame, as an estimated 40 percent of U.S. water and wastewater pipes are beyond their life expectancy, notes a recent article in WaterWorld. The article goes on to say that half of forecasted capital expenditures by water providers will cover new installation and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure Predictive Maintenance Offers Promise in Asset Management When it comes to understanding how water utilities approach asset maintenance, survey data shows that, on average, they tend to weight their efforts more heavily toward preventive maintenance. The Stormwater Resilience Roadmap: Integration of Delivery Frameworks and Financial Capacity A structured path to a paradigm shift in stormwater management can be developed by integrating an alternative program planning and execution framework, and by enhancing financial resilience through effective funding mechanisms.
