Water is undeniably essential to our lives. Which is why it’s critical that we create a sustainable future for it. At Stantec, we approach every project we undertake—whether at the local, regional, or watershed level—thoughtfully and execute it with excellence. We partner with our clients to design solutions that address their communities’ unique needs throughout the water infrastructure lifecycle.
Our One Water focus covers the management of fresh water, wastewater, stormwater, and groundwater as a collective resource. This can mean a lot of things, depending on where you are and your needs. Our approach is different if you’re in a water-rich area with a deteriorating ecosystem or an arid environment where water is precious and sustaining reasonable growth with traditional strategies is the challenge. But our goal never changes—enabling thriving economies and industries, community vitality, and healthy ecosystems.
We lead the industry with our innovative approach, balancing technological innovation with environmental, regulatory, and economic needs. We deliver award-winning, integrated design and engineering with every solution—getting water to where it’s needed, at the best value for our clients and their communities.
The future of humanity will be impacted by our ability to access clean water and sanitation, to eliminate the infrastructure deficit in underserved communities and developing countries, to effect environmental improvements, to foster climate change mitigation and resiliency, to deal with the impacts of urbanization, and to make the best of our water resources to provide food and energy for a growing population.
