Material Environmental, Social, & Economic Improvements to Our Communities

Our work with municipalities directly impacts the environment and communities where we live and the ecosystems around us. As we develop systems to understand and communicate the outcomes of our work, we also continue to grow and embed sustainable design and planning approaches throughout our practices.

Over the next year, as part of our company’s forward-looking strategy to continually expand our sustainability solutions and commitments, we’ll be reevaluating our strategies and goals. This will include driving the solutions, components and efforts for municipalities that align with providing the most impactful outcomes towards our vision: clean water, safe environment, healthy communities, happy people.

In the meantime, we have compiled a 2021 update of some meaningful and material outcomes from some of our municipal business practices:

  • By improving treatment, removing contaminants, and replacing aging piping including lead service lines, our Drinking Water teams helped over 80 communities provide access to clean, safe drinking water to a total population of over 10 million people.
  • Our Municipal Wastewater teams worked with communities to help them remove over 2.25 billion pounds of pollutants and return of over 900 billion gallons of clean water to the environment and reuse systems.
  • Our New England Stormwater teams helped over 20 communities reduce stormwater pollution, protecting over 2,400 miles of waterways and 14,000 acres of lakes and ponds.
  • Our Water Recycling teams planned the creation of sustainable water supplies benefiting over 7.5 million consumers and 20,000 acres of prime agricultural lands.
  • Our Community Development teams helped connect people to the outdoors by completing the planning, design, and/or construction administration on nearly 150 acres of parks, in addition to developing athletic facilities, walkways and trails, running tracks and courts.
  • Helping to move this work along, our Utility Finance team secured approximately $500 million dollars in grants/loans for this critical infrastructure work.
