Water Supply Planning
SMW understands both the regulatory
requirements to pursue alternative water supply (AWS) sources
and the realities faced by individual utilities. This is a
new issue facing all Florida utilities and it is important
that water suppliers are informed about water resource limitations.
Through requirements set forth by
the water management districts, alternative water supply development
and identification may be necessary. We attend regular meetings
sponsored by the water management districts where alternative
water source solutions and utility partnering options are
discussed. SMW provides technical input to protect our clients'
interests while maintaining an open dialogue with the regulatory
agencies as utilities develop alternative water supply resources.
Sarah M. Whitaker, P.G. and the professionals
of SMW have extensive experience with groundwater modeling,
aquifer investigations and water supply planning projects.
