We do have wide experience in the environmental field, gathered with working for the national and local governments and private companies. A speciality of the company is the knowledge of water (quality) management. We know the Dutch high profile water sector inside out, from a lot of practical experience which enables us to advice world wide on issues of technical and institutional aspects of water management.

In international projects we work together in different consortia to cover local participation and commitment. We are well informed about the European legislative framework. The aim of the company is to be active in and outside of Europe.

Water Management
Pollution sources are endangering our water resources all over the world. The focus in water management has traditionally been on water supply for drinking water and irrigation, with the sanitation side coming in second place. Today’s water management requires not only management in terms of quantity, but also securing sufficient water quality for the envisaged use of the water.

A worldwide-accepted strategy is to assign different water quality standards for different functions of the water body. Depending on the requirements of its use, water quality goals must be set for the water body as part of regional water management and environmental action plans.

Based on this situation nowadays a more integrated approach is common, demonstrated by Integrated River Basin Management and integrated water resource management
