OBG’s Focus on Solutions
OBG partnered with Providence Water to establish a program for replacing lead services as part of an overall effort to reduce lead in drinking water. OBG also helped direct an expert panel composed of leading academic researchers and water system operators in an effort to improve distribution system water quality and lead corrosion control. In consultation with OBG and the expert panel, Providence Water adopted a holistic approach that included advanced water quality monitoring, increased investment in renewing water distribution system infrastructure, and best in industry operations.
Using water quality models, benchmarking, cutting-edge research, and pilot studies, OBG collaborated with the client to develop strategies that have significantly improved the area’s water quality, while allowing the water utility to optimize its capital investments.
