Watershed and Ecosystem Management
AECOM helps communities meet the need for sustainable, high-quality water supplies while protecting the natural resources that are integral to the ecological health of the watershed.
We help our clients overcome increasingly complex issues involving water shortages, stormwater, flooding and climate change to help them develop resilient communities.
Through the application of adaptive management principles in the planning and design process, we integrate science and management, delivering the most targeted solution possible. Our staff analyzes engineering and construction feasibility as well as the regulatory, ecological, social and economic impacts of potential strategies.
AECOM has extensive experience in applying geospatial data to develop GIS-based analyses and decision-making processes in the investigation of built-out options or resource use applications. We have incorporated Smart Growth policies into sustainable plans and incorporated these policies into watershed protection recommendations.
