With positions at every level and offices around the globe, we create an environment where you can learn, grow and thrive.
Water is essential to all life on this planet. Our bodies are as much as 70 percent water, and water is critical to our overall health and well-being. It is one global resource we all share.
365bet体育皇冠Our natural environment also depends on water, as it is the building block that supports all life. Water issues are becoming increasingly prominent as we struggle with disparity between water availability and demands, water pollution and competition for limited water resources. At Jacobs, we recognize these challenges and our engineers, scientists and planners are working together with clients to find the right solutions to their water challenges.
365bet体育皇冠As water issues intensify, so does awareness of the effects of water management decisions. Decisions at one point in the water cycle affect all the others—from water supplies to treatment, conveyance, wastewater treatment, reuse and return to the natural environment. Whether it’s treating, distributing or storing water, Jacobs reaches across boundaries and collaborates to successfully deliver customized, innovative solutions.
Featured Solution: SWIFT
365bet体育皇冠homes at risk for surge damage in Hampton Roads area of Virginia
365bet体育皇冠gallons of SWIFT Water (water meeting drinking water standards) produced for recharge into dwindling Potomac Aquifer by 2030
365bet体育皇冠SWIFT (Sustainable Water Initiative for Tomorrow) is proactively addressing water, environmental and economic needs not only for today, but for generations to come in one of America’s most susceptible regions to climate variability.
Drinking Water and Reuse
365bet体育皇冠Developed countries take safe drinking water for granted, but it is truly a modern marvel. By staying on top of the most advanced drinking water and reuse treatment technology, we continue to move the industry forward.
Whether it’s designing an advanced water treatment facility or implementing an innovative potable water reuse program or a brackish or seawater desalination plant, we’re not just treating water, we’re giving communities, industries and regions the resource they need to flourish and expand.
365bet体育皇冠We are constantly pushing for more innovative and cost-effective solutions to give more people access to safe and abundant water supplies—especially as populations continue to grow around the world, regulations are changing, infrastructure is aging, and there’s a greater need for increased security.
As the No. 3 Water Supply and Water Treatment and Desalination Plants firm according to Engineering News-Record (ENR) and recipient of the 2015 the Stockholm Industry Water Award for leadership in potable reuse and public acceptance – we’re excited about what we do, the projects we deliver, and how these projects are positively impacting communities around the world.
365bet体育皇冠Our integrated comprehensive services, which consider a triple-bottom-line focus and a One Water mentality, allow us to move complex water projects from concept to completion and operation - successfully delivering the right solutions for our clients.
Thanks to industrialization and urbanization, the way we manage and even think about wastewater has evolved. While we didn’t invent today’s modern sewerage systems, we understand that water – even wastewater – is a precious resource and not something we should simply dispose of; and therefore, we take the total water cycle into consideration when engineering solutions and developing cutting-edge technologies to collect, reclaim and reuse wastewater.
What others might still consider waste, we see as a resource. In a capital-constrained and resource-constrained world, this is more important than ever. Utilities, industries and water-scarce regions that are implementing water reuse schemes and water systems capable of recovering energy, carbon and nutrients – like Australia’s Kooragang Island Water Scheme or Denmark’s Ejby Molle net-positive energy wastewater treatment plant – recognize the value of conserving water, optimizing their operations and reducing their energy and carbon footprint.
Since 2006, ENR has ranked us as the #1 overall design firm in Sewer/Wastewater Treatment and No. 3 in Sanitary and Storm Sewers.
New York City Wastewater Resiliency Plan, New York, U.S.
365bet体育皇冠In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, contributed to a first-of-its-kind comprehensive resiliency plan based on quantified impacts of climate change (assessing coastal flooding risks under future sea level conditions) and population growth on the city’s sewer, drainage and wastewater systems.
Ocean Outfall Legislation Program, Miami, Florida, U.S.
Serving as the program manager for Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department’s Ocean Outfall Legislation Program, we’re managing the overall delivery an estimated 62 capital projects aimed at stopping all wastewater discharge to the ocean by 2025, and reusing 60 percent of these flows.
Pine Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, Calgary, Canada
365bet体育皇冠A greenfield wastewater treatment plant is providing a new standard of effluent quality within the City of Calgary. Jacobs incorporated a triple-bottom-line approach to balance environmental, social and economic needs in the project’s innovative design.
Gippsland Water Factory, Victoria, Australia
First-of-its-kind in Australia, this innovative wastewater treatment and recycling system treats both domestic and industrial wastewater and produces high-quality recycled water for use by local industry. Recycled water benefits local industry, environment and community.
Toronto Basement Flooding Program, Canada
365bet体育皇冠In the wake of a massive 2005 flood, the City of Toronto began a significant effort to define appropriate flood mitigation solutions in its Basement Flooding Remediation Program. Jacobs is managing the program, which involves design and construction of 72 infrastructure assignments.
Atotonilco Wastewater Treatment Plant, Mexico City
As program manager for the construction of the 3,000 ML/d Atotonilco Wastewater Treatment Plant, one of the world’s biggest wastewater treatment plants, Jacobs helped Mexico City implement wastewater treatment that will clean almost 60 percent of metropolitan Mexico City’s wastewater.
Resource Recovery and Electrical Energy R2E2 Project, Green Bay, Wisconsin, U.S.
365bet体育皇冠We're providing consulting services to the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District for its R2E2 Project, which will recover resources and generate electricity using advanced wastewater technologies like anaerobic digsters for biogas production, generators for electrical energy generation, fluid-bed incinerators for heat recovery and more. GBMSD has shifted its way of thinking to view what comes from its facility not as a waste, but rather as a resource to be recovered and reused.
Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station, King County, Washington, U.S.
King County’s new wet weather treatment station, designed by us, will reduce the amount of untreated water entering local riverways during storms by an expected 95 percent; and with several green infrastructure components, it just became Washington state’s first Envision platinum facility.
Changi NEWater Factory, Singapore
Thanks to using a design-build delivery approach, the Changi NEWater Factory in Singapore was completed in 24 months. NEWater—Singapore’s own brand of high-quality reclaimed drinking water—from this plant nearly doubles Singapore’s NEWater capacity and fulfills approximately 15 percent of the country’s current water needs. The project won the Global Water Award for Water Reuse Project of the Year in 2010.
