Stormwater management is becoming more and more challenging with increased regulation, increased expectations, and shrinking budgets. The need for cost effective reliable solutions that comply with multiple levels of regulation and improve stream health is higher than ever. Through our experience working for development, public utilities, and non-profits we have developed a partnership approach that focuses firstly on what works on the ground to protect the environment, what can be supported by the local community, and how these strategies meet regulations.
We specialize in developing green stormwater infrastructure on the site and landscape scale that improves water quality and mimics natural hydrology. This design experience is grounded in an understanding of hydrologic processes and the ecosystems that depend on them. We aim to minimize costs with designs that take into account lifecycle costs and long term maintenance by clearly specifying critical components such as soil structure and planting plans. Our designs often form part of the landscape aesthetics which is important for long term viability.
