Integrated Water Management for Industry

As communities grow and change, water resource management becomes increasingly complex. Escalating demands for water supply intensify the need for new sources, conservation, and reuse. At the same time, from a watershed perspective, environmental needs often are considered to compete for water resources. These dynamics highlight complex inter-relationships among the links in the water management cycle—from source, to supply, to treatment, disposal, reuse, and back to source again. Such inter-relationships create greater complexity for water managers, who are already challenged to contain or reduce system capital and operating costs.

CH2M HILL's integrated water resources management team focuses on a collaborative process with clients to determine their overall goals and objectives for water management. We combine that data with simulation modeling to plan and implement water resource management from a total-system perspective. Our experienced staff analyzes the status and dynamics of supply, demand, cost, and risk throughout the system, develops simulation models using our proprietary VOYAGE™ modeling tool, and then applies optimization technologies to identify the best resource management strategies system wide.

CH2M HILL also provides integrated water management services that span the full envelope of an industrial facility from water resources management and planning, engineering, and construction through full operations. Our knowledge of manufacturing and production processes; the intricacies of water, wastewater, and stormwater management and treatment; and the complexity of operating and maintaining treatment facilities are unique among our engineering and construction competitors.

Lean Enterprise Consulting

Dennis Stamm
Phone: +1.770.849.1886

To be globally competitive, many manufacturing organizations are moving away from the more traditional, mass-production environment toward a "leaner," more agile environment. Through lean enterprise approaches, companies are realizing numerous manufacturing improvements, including reduced cycle times; increased productivity; lower total manufacturing costs; minimized paperwork; and reduced scrap, rework, material handling, and storage.

CH2M HILL's successful methodology approaches lean transformation projects as an enterprise initiative rather than a more-restricted manufacturing initiative. By taking a global view in lean enterprise consulting—treating your enterprise as a complex, integrated system consisting of people, technologies, processes, information components, and facilities—we can help you improve productivity and profits.

CH2M HILL's integrated master planning process creates order among natural and man-made elements on the project site, while balancing functional, business, and aesthetic requirements.

We collaborate with you to incorporate creative, timely, effective solutions into an integrated master plan, drawing on our worldwide site development experience and our full-service capabilities in facility planning, design, construction, and operations. CH2M HILL's depth of knowledge and experience in all project phases and facility processes add value and precision to the master planning process.
