Kleinschmidt Associates

Kleinschmidt provides hydropower engineering, regulatory and environmental services for North American energy companies and governmental agencies who endeavor to protect and enhance the natural environment, without compromising performance.

For more than 55 years, Kleinschmidt has consistently delivered new ideas that offer practical solutions to tough problems and sensitive issues. Our goal is to bring energy, water, and the environment into balance, so future generations will thrive.

We are one of only a few engineering consulting firms in North America specializing in hydropower and we have been doing it for more than 50 years. We focus on developing engineering, regulatory, and environmental solutions that benefit our clients by lowering cost, shortening schedules, and improving regulatory relationships.

Our scientists, engineers and planners can help you assess risks and potential vulnerabilities in your project in the context of climate change, identify and evaluate alternatives, and design sustainable solutions to maintain the efficiency and longevity of your project. We are small enough to maintain personal relationships with our clients, but large enough to have the resources to meet your needs.
