Water Management and Efficiency

Managing and treating water can pose complex challenges.

Ameresco works with our customers to manage water resources, and to conserve and utilize water most efficiently.  Ameresco develops effective solutions and provides innovative ways to help reduce water use.  Water savings measures are regularly incorporated in energy savings performance contract (ESPC) projects.

Ameresco also provides comprehensive wastewater treatment services to assure clean, safe water and effective wastewater management.  Our experts design and build wastewater treatment facilities and systems that allow water to be safely re-used.  In addition, we develop solutions that convert waste-to-energy (WTE) or create biogas that can be utilized for facility operations.

We have designed solutions to preserve and protect groundwater, provide for flood control, and manage storm drainage.

Assisting customers to effectively utilize their water resources, we not only implement systems for water reuse and desalination, but we also employ renewable energy resources and harness valuable resources.
