Flood modelling has made major advances in recent years with exciting new software tools and step changes in data. While this has led to increased accuracy and reduced flood modelling costs, opportunities for greater community involvement in the flood modelling processes have not been taken. CH2M Global Technology Leader Jon Wicks explains how flood modellers can collaborate more effectively with communities to help identify better flood management solutions.
CH2Mer Amy Gao will present her paper, "Lessons Learned From Ozone Contactor Tracer Testing at Little Falls Water Treatment Plant," co-authored by Russell Ford, CH2M Global Drinking Water Leader, at the American Water Works Association's Water Quality Technology Conference, in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Wednesday, November 18. Read today's Access Water for more information on this case study.
Coastal environments are constantly changing, especially as seasons come and go—beach and shorelines rapidly erode during winter storms, only to be rebuilt and restored in more benign summer conditions. To distinguish between cyclic and progressive change, monitoring shoreline behaviour at regular intervals is critical to effectively manage and protect shorelines and local communities. In today's Access Water blog, CH2Mer Michael Stickley shares highlights from a project in Trinidad & Tobago, where our team is using CH2M’s shoreline and nearshore data system (SANDS) to monitor environmental changes and help protect the coastline. Read Michael's blog to learn more about SANDS and how this system can benefit coastal communities.
CH2M's Elisa Speranza recently published a guest blog for the Value of Water Coalition, discussing the importance of collaboration among CH2M and its visionary partners in coming up with solutions for some of the challenges our communities and companies are facing as a result of climate change and failing infrastructure. CH2M takes pride in helping our clients protect communities, preserve the environment and create opportunity. In our most recent 2015 Sustainability and Corporate Citizenship Report, we celebrate 10 years of sustainability reporting and the great progress that’s been made as we strive to change the game and be more creative than ever before to help meet critical infrastructure and natural resource needs.
