CH2MHill is an employee-owned engineering firm with extensive operations around the globe. Infrastructure related to water is a big piece of the company’s business and therefore concern over the future of global water supplies and stability is a big piece of the company’s sustainability strategy.

I had a chance to sit down with Jan Hill, a vice president at CH2MHill to talk about the importance of water to the company as well as an interesting initiative the company launched last year called water match.

In a nutshell, water match is like an online dating service whose goal is to identify sources of municipal wastewater that have the potential to be reused by industry and other business. A successful match means less water wasted and new business relationships developed.
