HRS is a premier groundwater and water resources consulting firm in Colorado having proudly served the Rocky Mountain region since 1981.

A Pioneering Spirit

Our founders were passionate about the science and engineering of water and they loved tackling water-related problems. That pioneering spirit has permeated through two generations of employees and guides us to this day. As a testament to their vision, we continue to serve some of HRS’ original clients after 38 years.

Our mission is to improve the condition of our clients and the communities where we work, create opportunities for early-career professionals who share our passion for water, and run our business both ethically and profitably. Our technical expertise runs deep and wide, and we serve a diverse and varied client base. These and other qualities allow us to provide lasting value to clients.
