Strategic Consulting

Warwick Group Consultants also provides a unique set of water resource policy services.  We’re proud that our research and analyses have led to published articles and reports, but everything we do is designed to achieve tangible results, not just lay on a shelf.

We have assisted State and Federal agencies by recommending policy strategies that will reduce costs, increase resiliency and have a greater likelihood of receiving federal funding.  For engineering firms, we have analyzed alternative financing opportunities as well as advised them on adjusting their business models to take account of the declining role of the federal government in water resource projects.  For a major ‘think tank’, we have brought together stakeholders to develop collaborative approaches to the regional management of our coastlines.

Whether it’s working to develop regional approaches to coastal resiliency projects, or finding alternative ways to finance water infrastructure projects, our goal is to put tools into the hands of the businesses and government officials who can use our work to achieve results.

Our areas of focus include:

  • Coastal Sustainability and Resiliency
  • Flood Control
  • Inland Navigation
  • Ports and Harbors
  • Hydropower
  • Emergency Preparedness & Response
  • Pre- and Post-Disaster Assistance
  • Environmental Permitting
  • Ecosystem Restoration

Lobbying Advocacy

Ports, waterways, and other water resource projects are vital economic drivers for local communities and the nation. Raising the capital necessary to undertake planning, design, construction, and maintenance activities for these resources is extremely difficult in a time of shrinking budgets and sequestration. Additionally, changes to the federal appropriations process have put financial decisions regarding our nation’s water resources in the hands of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Administration, rather than Congress. We partner with our clients to demystify the federal process and advocate on their behalf with federal agencies and Congress.

The experts at Warwick Group Consultants have worked with local communities to secure funding for their respective water infrastructure needs. We work closely with the Corps of Engineers’ Districts and Divisions across the country, as well as the Corps Headquarters in Washington, DC. Our extensive experience and good working relationships with Congress and the Corps have allowed the experts at Warwick Group to secure hundreds of millions of dollars for studies and projects. Even more importantly, we get into the trenches to address study problems, cut through procedural red tape, and get the job done.

Additionally, Warwick Group engages agencies in the Executive Branch, including the Office of Management and Budget, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Council on Environmental Quality, and others. Our strong relationships with regulatory and budgetary authorities is vital to helping our clients achieve their water resources infrastructure goals and ensure the continued efficiency and protection of local communities.
