Water Quality

Water quality is affected by a vast number of variables.  The Cardno multidisciplinary approach delivers effective solutions to improve and maintain water quality. 

Our point of difference is our ability to meet client objectives while providing high quality water to the communities that depend on it.
Our teams are up-to-date on the latest water quality regulations such as Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), numeric nutrient criteria development, and the growing list of emerging contaminants. We also design constructed wetlands, a proven technology for naturally treating water from waste streams including domestic and industrial wastewater, agricultural runoff, stormwater runoff, contaminated groundwater, and landfill leachate.
We are experienced with water and sediment quality evaluations in all types of freshwater, estuarine, and marine ecosystems. Cardno provides knowledge of new and evolving water resource regulations regarding nutrient loading; experience in the assessment, planning and management of watersheds; expertise with sediment transport modeling; and identification of point and nonpoint source pollution.
We perform diagnostic studies and feasibility assessments to identify impairments to water quality and implement customized solutions to address water quality issues. Our services range from simple monitoring of turbidity for construction projects to evaluating and addressing the potential implications of a broad array of heavy metals, organic substances, nutrients and biological parameters for clients including agriculture, industry, mining, water management agencies, and state and local governments.
