March 17, 2020 marks the 32nd year anniversary for WEST Consultants!
WEST Consultants, Inc. (WEST), is a firm dedicated to providing specialized water resources engineering services relevant to Water, Environment, Sedimentation, and Technology. WEST personnel are recognized as computer modeling experts in hydrology, hydraulics, geomorphology, sediment transport, and water quality. Accordingly, WEST is known for the development of innovative computer modeling tools, expertise in complex modeling situations, and the conduct of effective professional training courses. Through the years, WEST’s technical services have also broadened to best serve our clients. We now offer hydro-meteorological sciences, flow measurement and hydrologic data collection, and irrigation and drainage engineering. In 2017 we added Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) services to our offerings.
The firm’s portfolio of projects spans across six continents and includes some of the most significant rivers in the world. Notable projects include hydrologic and hydraulic modeling in support of the Columbia River Treaty; implementation of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Corps Water Management System in multiple watersheds; geomorphic analysis for the Fargo, ND / Moorhead, MN Flood Risk Management Project; and thousands of additional hydraulic analysis and design projects including transportation, flood risk assessment and mitigation, and environmental impact assessment and restoration.
Water is an increasingly precious commodity. Now, more than ever, it is necessary for us to balance the water resource needs of people and the environment; effectively assess and manage flood and drought risks from changing climate conditions; and to optimize water allocations to counteract water scarcity and diminishing water supplies to address ever-increasing demand. WEST engineers have built a highly successful and increasingly important business, based on forward-thinking and the consideration of continuing changes in water resources. We are confident in our ability to continue to effectively address your water resource needs now and into the future!
We wish to thank all the clients and business associates that we have met and worked with over the past 30 years. We recognize that without you, WEST would not exist. We are grateful to all of you for our past, present, and continuing success!
WEST has offices in Salem, Oregon; Bellevue and Vancouver, Washington; San Diego and Folsom, California; Tempe and Red Rock, Arizona; and Dallas, Texas.
As expressed by our founder, Dr. Jeffrey B. Bradley, “We are committed to providing the best possible service to our clients by applying the most technologically advanced methods in a cost-effective manner. Clients choose WEST because they trust us to serve them well.”
