Water Planning

In an increasingly drought prone Central Texas, economic growth and development are tied to availability of water – for everyday single family and multifamily use, for retail, office, commercial and industrial use, for the irrigation of parks and open space, and even to produce the energy we use every day.

Drenner Group has a unique niche in Central Texas with its substantial water planning expertise – and the corresponding relationships to help our clients understand not only their water supply options, but what water demand choices they may have that might ease permitting red tape and reduce project opposition.

Our experience includes:

  • Population Projections
  • Residential Demand Projections
  • Commercial Demand Projections
  • Industrial Demand Projections
  • Regional Water Supply Evaluations
  • Supply Technology Evaluations
  • Service Extension Requests
  • Water Conservation Evaluations
  • Conceptual Design Development
  • Conceptual Cost Estimating
