Data Center Water

Delivering water management solutions so our clients can focus on building and operating reliable and sustainable data centers

Water supply and wastewater discharge are critical factors in siting and operating large data centers. Hyperscale data centers require large cooling infrastructure to remove heat. Evaporative cooling systems  can require millions of gallons per day of a reliable water supply, while also continuously producing a concentrated blowdown that requires treatment and discharge, or reuse. Data center water strategies and infrastructure have a significant effect on facility cost, reliability, and vulnerability.

BC collaborates with our clients on these crucial elements throughout the project lifecycle, from site selection through long-term operations. Early engagement can lead to greater opportunity for the development of water and wastewater management strategies that minimize financial, operational, and reputational risks. This approach empowers clients to be more competitive and better meet their reliability and sustainability commitments to customers.

We implement smart water management strategies that minimize the water footprint, reduce total costs of ownership, and reduce the risk profile of your investment and operations.
