RECOVERY AND REBUILDING - Water and Wastewater

Access to clean water and functioning wastewater facilities is often taken for granted in the United States, and disruption of these services due to natural disaster creates significant post-disaster impacts.  Flooding and drought, among other natural hazards and climate-change-influenced events, often devastate these critical  facilities, with dire consequences for human health.

GZA’s scientists and engineers have a great deal of experience with water and wastewater facilities, and the firm provides Natural Hazard Mitigation and Resilience services , including:

RECOVERY AND REBUILDING - Transportation Infrastructure

Damage to roads, bridges and tunnels creates devastating post-disaster consequences, particularly impacting recovery efforts.  While transportation infrastructure is designed to meet robust seismic requirements, it is often highly vulnerable to flooding and the long-term effects of climate change.

RECOVERY AND REBUILDING - Contaminated Sites

Contaminated properties, Superfund sites, brownfields, and landfills are often located within flood hazard zones and may have been designed without consideration for long-term challenges from climate change and sea level rise. When impacted by natural disaster, particularly flooding, these sites can experience the uncontrolled release of polluted soil, water, and groundwater; sludge; non-aqueous phase liquids; and/or vapor. The resulting, toxic conditions pose dire risks to human health and the environment.
