Water Resources: A Science-driven, Sustainable Approach
AKRF’s water resources practice provides a science-driven, sustainable approach to tackle today’s stormwater, wastewater, potable water, and other water management needs. We help clients implement conservation strategies that reduce total water consumption, and save money through the efficient and environmentally conscious engineering of their water systems.
Integrating a variety of disciplines—engineering, aquatic ecology, public policy, fisheries, GIS, remediation, landscape planning and design, economics, planning, and public outreach —AKRF helps communities build multi-objective, and ecologically intact resources that support a diversity of uses and values, including water supply, waste and flood conveyance, food and energy production, commerce and navigation, recreation, and sense of place.
