60 Years of Leadership. Since 1959, Western Water has helped our public and industrial clients anticipate, plan and perform through constant change.
Originally founded as general engineering firm Kirkwood-Bly, we renamed the company Western Water in 2004 to better reflect our expertise and commitment to our region’s vital water and renewable energy resources.
In nearly sixty years of operation, we’ve continually been recognized for our ability to understand and navigate complex issues, and work collaboratively with clients and partners to ensure successful project completion.
