Water is instrumental to maintaining economic, community, and environmental health. MFA’s economists help clients navigate strategies for water management by forecasting water demand; evaluating optimal water use; valuing water rights; and understanding water supply security and the role of uncertainty in planning. Because water infrastructure is a critical investment, we help clients understand the implications for water use and value given changing water demands, policies, climate, and ecology. From mining companies to Indian Nations to municipalities and federal agencies, MFA’s economists bring a deep understanding of water-related issues and add value to the decision-making process.
