Focus on Protecting and Restoring our Water Supply and Water Quality Resources

Florida’s population is expected to reach 26 million by 2030. As people continue to relocate to Florida, this growth and the impacts of climate change put a strain on older infrastructure and increase demand on natural resources. Resiliency means different things to different communities but whether you are dealing with growth pressures or sea level rise, local governments are being faced with decisions regarding how to upgrade and expand their infrastructure to address the unknowns over the life of their facilities.

At Jones Edmunds, we build resiliency strategies into our planning processes and infrastructure designs with a focus on protecting and restoring our water supply and water quality resources. Our approach addresses infrastructure life cycles and the cost implications of alternative solutions for water and wastewater utilities, stormwater, and other civil infrastructure. Solutions include low-impact development and sustainability/climate adaptation planning that are translated into resilient infrastructure designs. Services offered include the following.

  • Water Resources
