Planning and Communications for
Water, Wastewater and Stormwater Utilities

Barney & Worth, Inc., established in 1978, is an award-winning firm providing professional consulting services for public agencies, businesses, and non-profit organizations. We partner with our clients to build better communities, ensuring infrastructure and services are in place in time to meet pressing community needs.

As communities rebuild aging water infrastructure, customers find themselves paying full price for system improvements – for the first time. Across the U.S., the limits of affordability are being tested.

Great engineering and a solid financial plan are no longer enough to secure project success. Utilities must also build a strong sense of community ownership. Today, new infrastructure is nearly always a “big ticket” item. The folks who will be footing the bill must understand the need and project benefits, and be ready to endorse the plan.

Customers must care enough to invest substantial resources to safeguard public health and the environment for the future – so everyone can continue to enjoy clean water.

Barney & Worth helps utilities gain community ownership. The Barney & Worth benefits:

  • Project moves ahead, on time
  • Cost savings
  • Long-term community trust and support
