Drinking Water

A safe, clean, sustainable water supply is a basic human right—and a major stressor for growing communities. From pump stations to pipelines, Harris & Associates helps agencies fund and improve access to their most precious resource.


The Harris team believes fervently in building a secure water future for all. We subscribe to the U.S. Water Alliance’s One Water vision for combatting our nation’s biggest water challenges. For our clients and their communities, this commitment manifests itself in sustainable, cost-effective treatment, and conveyance solutions.

Finance and Planning Experts

As population growth and aging infrastructure push water budgets to the brink, agencies turn to Harris to find the best way forward. We explore the full variety of options, including water rates studies, grants, State Revolving Fund loans for capital improvement projects, and more.

We also promote project success from the start with careful attention to strategic analysis, master planning, program management, and risk and resilience leadership. Given the importance of stakeholder and community buy-in, we focus on managing public perception and proactive community outreach as key facets of our work.

Fresh Approach to Engineering and Construction

Harris brings to each job decades of experience designing, rehabilitating, and building large potable water systems—often without disrupting service. Our experienced professionals hold credentials in the latest sustainable engineering and construction techniques. Representing your best interests throughout the project, we manage safety, quality, costs, timelines, and compliance with all regulations and mandates. Our skilled engineers also design water solutions to withstand the effects of climate change and frequent extreme weather events
