Experienced specialists in KLJ’s water resources group assist clients in all aspects of water resources planning. Water projects offer unique challenges and complexity, and our professionals offer creative, long-term solutions for everything from water treatment and distribution systems to water storage, erosion control, pumping systems and disposal.

We serve a variety of clients from municipalities to private developers, presenting systematic alternatives to enhance water management.
