Utility Management

Hazen and Sawyer offers extensive results-driven experience in the operations, management, and financing of water and wastewater utilities. For over 50 years, our staff of professional engineers, technicians, and management consultants have assisted a wide range of utilities, throughout the U.S. and abroad, both large and small, in maintaining competitive cost and quality performance.

Hazen and Sawyer provides comprehensive utility management consulting services, all of which are tailored to meet the specific needs of each customer. Our Utility Management Services Group possesses extensive real-world experience in both the public and private sectors. These personnel have credentials in management, finance, accounting, planning, law, environmental engineering, and plant operations. Group members have been responsible for direct-line management of large municipal facilities, assisted the USEPA in establishing policies and guidelines for the new “privatization initiative,” and managed private O&M corporations.
