Importance of Water Resiliency

Organizations depend on an affordable, reliable supply of water for functions beyond potable demand: critical process, cooling, and heating. For an average facility, water comes into contact with over $750 million in real assets, making it an integral utility for operations. Yet many organizations do not have N+1 redundancy for their water supply, leaving them exposed to growing risks such as:

  • Resiliency & business risk: Aging infrastructure, flooding, drought, and capacity limitations can impede water supply and, by extension, facility operations.
  • Cost volatility: Water and sewer are the fastest growing utility costs.
  • Sustainability & climate: Visibility of water is increasing in ESG reporting and many facilities are starting to feel to effects of climate risks.

Achieving water resiliency means addressing these risks to attain a cost-effective, dependable water supply by using and reusing water in a truly sustainable way. Organizations that invest in water resiliency are investing in more stable and future-proof operations.

CFR helps clients assess water risks and identify highest vulnerabilities. Based on extensive stakeholder engagement, we lead clients to implement selected water resiliency solutions that can increase redundancy and business continuity, address environmental concerns, and generate savings while hedging against price volatility. These solutions span technologies and are tailored to client needs to deliver safe, reliable, clean water.

CFR remains solution and vendor agnostic, ensuring solutions are fit for purpose, rigorously vetted, and financially sound for our clients. Utility and process water solutions can leverage the “Water as a Service” (no capital outlay, 3rd party financing) or be financed directly by the client.
