Engineering and Environmental Services for Food Processors

Food processing requires large volumes of water for operations such as rinsing, canning and sanitation. For years, water was relatively plentiful and the accepted practices for process water management were application to land or discharge to ponds for infiltration and evaporation.

Now demand for water supplies is rising and many processors must compete with developers for limited water rights. Regulatory agencies are imposing restrictive, costly conditions on their renewals for wastewater discharge permits.

As a result, processors must plan carefully for successful ongoing operations, considering all aspects of water use and reuse/disposal, as well as the likely impact of regulatory precedents and trends.

Kennedy/Jenks Consultants specializes in the full range of process engineering and compliance support services necessary to meet this strategic challenge.
