Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improve the environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to remediate polluted sites. Briefly speaking, the main task of environmental engineering is to protect public health by protecting (from further degradation), preserving (the present condition of), and enhancing the environment with regard to water and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, and public health issues as well as a knowledge of environmental engineering law. It also includes studies on the environmental impact of proposed construction projects.

Since people first recognized that their health and well-being were related to the quality of their environment, they have applied thoughtful principles to attempt to improve the quality of their environment. The ancient Harappan civilization utilized early sewers in some cities. The Romans constructed aqueducts to prevent drought and to create a clean, healthy water supply for the metropolis of Rome. In the 15th century, Bavaria created laws restricting the development and degradation of alpine country that constituted the region’s water supply. Today, local governments and authorities are facing complex issues, such as increased regulations, legislative initiatives, and aging infrastructures. As regulations governing the use, operation, and maintenance of water and wastewater systems become more stringent, it is becoming more challenging to provide consumers with safe, high quality drinking water at a reasonable cost.

Watkins & Associates, L.L.C. is meeting the environmental engineering needs of local governments and authorities by utilizing new technology based on proven concepts and matching the technology with the proper application. We understand the economic challenges of each project and the importance of conserving our natural resources. Watkins & Associates, L.L.C. has extensive experience with a diverse mix of environmental projects. We work closely with our clients to provide sustainable designs that not only successfully meet their goals but also meet their present and future needs.
