Emphasis on structural solutions is only one part of a complex system of U.S. infrastructure. Natural resource issues of wetland conservation, power generation, recreational water use and agriculture all have an effect on the goal of sustainable development. Dramatic progress may be possible only by developing entirely new construction materials and methods.

Each of Strata’s service lines contribute to innovative solutions for water collection and distribution systems, water treatment plants, power generation projects, streambed restoration, dams, and water pollution control. Assuring future generations the availability of vital water resources will require an integration of geotechnical engineering, environmental expertise and construction materials testing. “We're all downstream.” -Ecologist's motto adopted by Margaret & Jim Drescher
