K&A is leading technical efforts to establish and implement a framework for evaluating and implementing water resource projects undertaken by a water fund (AQUAFONDO) in Lima, Peru. The water fund is being designed to fund projects that address both water quality and quantity issues for the City's threatened drinking water supply.
K&A is assisting the City of Santa Rosa wastewater utility with a nutrient offset program that is the first of its kind in California. K&A successfully prepared regulator-approved credit proposals for conservation practices at dairies, as well as for salmon habitat restoration.
Stormwater Management at Western Michigan University
K&A is continuing to help WMU become Stormwater NeutralTM. The university was recognized by Michigan DEQ for its efforts to manage stormwater runoff through treatment projects and policies. An article highlighted several BMPs implemented by WMU in partnership with K&A.
K&A is collaborating with local stakeholders to quantify and document Watershed Management Plan (WMP) implementation progress in Portage and Arcadia Creeks. A year-long intensive monitoring project will compare current and past water quality in the watershed after ten years of BMP implementation.
