From the MWH Archives | In 1945, James McKee Montgomery laid the foundation for an environmental engineering consultancy firm named James M. Montgomery Consulting Engineers, Inc. (JMM) in Pasadena, CA, focusing on water and wastewater solutions. You may recognize “Montgomery” as the “M” in MWH. The company was officially incorporated in 1954 and offered a range of engineering and construction management services.
In light of skyrocketing freshwater demands and ever-intensifying weather shifts, the imperative for establishing sustainable water infrastructure becomes even more pronounced. As a firm with a 200-year history steeped in water and wastewater treatment innovation, MWH partners with municipalities, public utility providers, and private industrial clients to effectively tackle water quality and scarcity challenges.
Water reuse is rapidly emerging as a crucial solution to address water scarcity and promote sustainable water management practices worldwide. While wastewater treatment plants have long been associated with sewage treatment, an underlying role often goes unnoticed; these plants are pivotal water recycling facilities. MWH has a noble reputation as a leading global construction firm that specializes in water infrastructure and delivers innovative water reuse projects. Our commitment to providing resilient, dependable, and high-quality water sources has earned our firm a distinguished reputation in the industry.
