District Infrastructure and On-site Water Systems
In the Bay Area, like much of the world, water is precious. Everyone knows water is getting more expensive, droughts are coming, and temperatures are rising. Should new developments assume everything will be fine and planners have done their jobs, or should they take action to develop their own water resources and invest in flexibility during critical periods?
It is not just water - across all utilities, new technologies and systems are re-opening questions about infrastructure. Should you just connect or invest in the infrastructure that will maintain your independence?
Ember aids clients in evaluating district systems and on-site water systems, through the lens of a changing regulatory landscape and an evolving understanding of risk. We help clients engage with regulators, clarify the permitting pathway and quantify and articulate the benefits to all involved.
