Communities around the globe are challenged to find effective ways to manage water throughout the water cycle restoring the water we use to continue sustaining the natural environment. At AECOM, our Water specialists work together worldwide to find innovative solutions to the management of water. Our teams based in Leeds and Manchester deliver projects locally within the North of England, across the UK and to our clients in the Middle East such as: Chester Zoo – Using 360 ingenuity, AECOM designed unique drainage strategies complementing the attraction’s natural aesthetics, including a bespoke Orang-utan proof filter trench and reed beds that treat runoff from the Banteng enclosure.

For the Jeddah Stormwater Drainage Programme AECOM delivered fast-tracked solutions including 10 flood-protection dams and 170km of channels and conduits to protect the city’s 3.5 million residents. Seven Lochs Wetland Park in Glasgow AECOM identified opportunities to protect and enhance the existing wetland habitat whilst also undertaking strategic water environment restoration including habitat
creation, de-culverting, channel naturalization and habitat restoration.

Our Leeds office is an AECOM Centre of Excellence for flood modelling and we have provided technical expertise in flood modelling to AECOM projects across Europe, Middle East and Africa. We connect with our colleagues globally through our technical networks that provide training and knowledge sharing for all of the water team.
