For AQUA, working in the environmental field means action with a focus on designing projects that are self- sustaining and environmentally enhancing. Our list of projects is extensive, including the design of waste to energy projects that produce methane gas from municipal bio-solids, animal wastes, and food processing wastes to generate both heat and power. We permitted Utah’s largest landfill north of the Great Salt Lake and designed several composting processes including one using municipal solid waste with wastewater bio-solids. Recently, solar energy has become part of many of our projects. Our LEED certified staff use recycled and energy efficient materials, energy efficient heating and cooling systems, and energy efficient lighting systems in their designs.
AQUA helps both the public entity and the private industry in permit compliance, in mitigating violations and fines, and negotiating permits that are fair and balanced.
