Design/Build

The lack of adequate water supply can pose numerous problems to development and slow growth. Bringing water to areas where it doesn’t exist or where it is in short supply is another challenge that American Water helps businesses and communities overcome. Our teams have helped to plan and build infrastructure for all types of projects. We’ve worked with new residential communities, shopping malls, office buildings and international corporations to provide them with water and wastewater services.

Our strength as a leader in water service and wastewater treatment stems from our expert teams and our longevity in the industry. Our teams of experts work hard each day to develop solutions that provide our customers with the water that is necessary to everyday life. Whatever the challenge is, chances are American Water can help to solve it. We have the expertise and the capabilities to design and build decentralized water and wastewater facilities for developers, helping them deliver projects on time and on budget.

We manage water resources in an environmentally sensitive way, and always take into account the environmental impact of the projects we design and build. One type of system we design  - Community On-Site Water/Wastewater Systems (COWS) – are small decentralized systems that are managed as one without being physically interconnected. The COWS model minimizes environmental impact by recycling water or recharging groundwater.

We're a trusted water resource company dedicated to creating and delivering innovative solutions, and we're able to put our experience to use for you.
