IEc's interdisciplinary team has extensive experience in providing objective economic, scientific, and policy analysis to help address water quality and allocation issues both in the U.S. and internationally. We have worked with a wide range of clients including the World Bank, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Fish and Wildlife Service, and various state agencies and private parties on issues such as cost-effective adaptation to declining water availability under climate change, litigation over surface water and groundwater allocation, development of TMDLs, and the economic impacts resulting from policy changes to support aquatic species.

IEc is assisting EPA in conducting a study on the importance of water to the U.S. economy. The purpose of this effort is to summarize existing knowledge on the topic and identify areas where additional research would be useful. EPA hopes that the study will also be a catalyst for a broader discussion on the role of water in the economy and the information required to support efficient and effective economic decisions related to water.
