Reaping the Rewards of Industrial Ecology
A modern ecocomplex will be a green industrial park where treatment facilities and industry unite to recover resources and maximize renewable energy. Industrial ecology boasts several benefits, including protecting natural resources, generating renewable energy, and controlling solid waste management costs.
Safe Passage for Salmon
CDM Smith teamed with Puget Sound Energy to construct upgrades to the adult fish trap, a facility that captures and transports migrating adult salmon in “fish taxis” upstream around two Baker River dams—too tall for conventional fish ladders—to their spawning grounds.

As a preeminent thought leader on transportation finance and planning, Ed Regan discusses solutions for funding transportation infrastructure―starting by supporting the U.S. interstate highway system.
Urban Roadway Innovation
We partnered with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) to redesign Interstate 40 and nearby interchanges in Knoxville, Tennessee—the largest project in the department’s history. The SmartFIX40 project improved safety, capacity and local access, while respecting neighboring residents and ecosystems.
A Breath of Fresh Air
A major manufacturer’s innovative emissions control system is keeping its plant operating at critical production levels. Implemented through design-build delivery, our integrated solution reduced emissions without curtailing production quickly, cost-effectively and without worry.
By presenting an outline of innovative and alternative water supply projects to meet the projected demand, MDWASD met approval requirements for its 20-year water use permit.
