What is the WDBC Advisor Group?
The WDBC Advisor Group is a special affiliated category for firms that work with engineering companies in some capacity in the water design-build sector. The purpose in creating this category is to provide a means for WDBC members to further engage and actively work with affiliated businesses in the pursuit of achieving best practices required for the design-build delivery of water and wastewater systems.
For those firms, this participation approach provides those water industry practitioners who support the mission and vision of WDBC with distinct engagement opportunities to pursue business ventures and gain further recognition of their services in the water design-build industry.
