Water Resources


Abt Associates has worked with our clients since 1984 to improve the quality and management of our nation’s water resources. We help protect the quality of surface and ground water resources and human health by improving the quality of drinking water. We evaluate the benefits and costs of alternative water resource management projects for flood control, navigation, water supply, hydropower, and coastal protection. 

Our services range from estimating the costs, benefits, and economic impacts of proposed effluent guidelines under the Clean Water Act to developing models to estimate the loss-of-life associated with potential flood events in New Orleans.
Whatever the water resource challenge, Abt’s team of economists, engineers, biologists, and computer modelers bring decades of experience and state-of-the-art approaches to quantitative and qualitative analyses to help our clients choose the best management solution available.
