The Montrose Global Water Practice works closely with clients in private industry and government to provide novel, turn-key services and treatment system designs tailored for specific treatment constraints, project schedules and budgets. Our team has deep experience within the water and wastewater market, and we’re uniquely positioned to offer end-to-end project support and a full range of consulting, troubleshooting, pilot testing, design, engineering, installation, commissioning and long-term operations and maintenance services.

We have industry-leading project experience with drinking water, groundwater, water reuse, industrial and municipal wastewater, food and beverage, emerging contaminants, flue gas desulfurization, and digestate treatment and nutrient recovery.

Our team deploys a diverse set of standard, emerging and customized water treatment technologies, including ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis membranes, media-based filtration systems, ozone, UV, aerobic, anaerobic biological treatment, ammonia stripping systems, and thermal drying.

Montrose leads turn-key design, engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of facilities for greenfield projects. We also handle significant retrofits or upgrades to existing facilities, such as installing new, more efficient equipment to achieve long-term cost savings, or reconfiguring older treatment systems in order to ensure compliance with new environmental regulations.

We also take on underperforming or financially distressed projects—creating, designing, and executing plans to enhance project profitability.

In addition to our comprehensive EPC solutions, we also lead the way in providing a wide range of other project support services that span the entire life cycle of a project—operations and maintenance, environmental permitting, laboratory sampling and testing, and regulatory reporting—allowing us to serve as a long-term project partner.

We draw on our deep collective experience to provide in-depth initial evaluations and assessments of projects, and engage in active troubleshooting for projects that are currently operational.
