Carollo is very proud (and a little bit humbled) to have been selected by Engineering News-Record (ENR) as its 2016 California Design Firm of the Year. This is a huge honor, given not just the spread and size of the California market, but also the impressive list of engineering companies in the state. While we owe much of this honor to the hard work of our employees across the entire company, an equal measure goes to the clients who have supported our "water is all we do" philosophy and have trusted us over the years to help us make water our focus, our business, and our passion....
Carollo recently won the Grand Prize in the Environmental Sustainability Category for their Delano biotttaTM Wellhead Nitrate Treatment Project. See Project Details here.

Summary: New research indicates that California's Central Valley harbors three times more groundwater than previously estimated, but challenges to using it include pumping costs, ground subsidence and possible contamination from fracking and other oil and gas activities.
California's drought-stricken Central Valley harbors three times more groundwater than previously estimated, Stanford scientists have found. Accessing this water in an economically feasible way and safeguarding it from possible contamination from oil and gas activities, however, will be challenging.
"It's not often that you find a 'water windfall,' but we just did," said study co-author Robert Jackson, the Michelle and Kevin Douglas Provostial Professor at Stanford. "There's far more fresh water and usable water than we expected."
The research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences the week of June 27, highlights the need to better characterize and protect deep groundwater aquifers not only in California but in other parched regions as well.
"Our findings are relevant to a lot of other places where there are water shortages, including Texas, China and Australia," said study co-author Mary Kang, a postdoctoral associate at Stanford School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences.
Previous estimates of groundwater in California are based on data that are decades old and only extend to a maximum depth of 1,000 feet, and often less. Until now, little was known ...click here to continue.
