Amy Ewing, P.G., is a Hydrogeologist and licensed Professional Geoscientist, specializing in water resources investigations and planning, managed aquifer recharge (MAR), water quality studies, watershed management, intergovernmental water operating agreements, and permitting. Ms. Ewing has more than 15 years of experience in all aspects of water planning, including working with municipalities and water systems on water supply and demand analysis, water audits, conservation, drought management planning, and regional and state water planning. She is Project Manager for the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority’s recharge projects, which aim to establish a long-term drought reserve using surface water for recharge. She is also supporting the City of Hobbs on its MAR demonstration project planning.

Ms. Ewing routinely supports clients with applicable regulatory requirements, necessary permitting, and the identification of funding sources. Other projects have involved regionalization, reuse, source water protection planning, watershed management, and water quality investigations. Ms. Ewing has been instrumental in DBS&A securing more than $20 million in federal and state funding for our clients’ projects.
