Wastewater

Windward provides technical services to facilities operating and managing industrial and POTW plants and discharges. Windward’s wastewater related project expertise is focused in the areas of discharge permitting, biological and water quality assessment, and industrial pretreatment and natural resource related design and construction management services.

Maintaining regulatory compliance for wastewater dischargers can subject operators to mandates of both state and federal endangered species acts. Windward’s biologists have extensive experience working with state and federal agencies developing, preparing, and implementing ESA permits. Our expertise includes establishing baseline conditions and water quality standards, designing long-term monitoring and recovery programs, establishing communication and reporting protocols with regulatory agencies, and designing appropriate mitigation resolution programs.
