Effective Stormwater Management
As development claims undeveloped land; pavement, parks, and buildings replace fields, forests, and streams. This results in the inability for stormwater to flow to natural drainages or seep into the ground as it naturally would. Uncontrolled stormwater runoff and the contaminants it can contain negatively impact downstream properties and waterbodies. As civil engineers, we perform measures to both control stormwater and enhance stormwater quality in all of our designs.
The approach for maintaining stormwater can be as simple as reducing the amount of pavement proposed in a project, or as creative as designing a stormwater retention system to treat runoff from areas with either high amounts of impervious surface or high concentrations of contaminants. Systems can also be designed to capture, store, treat and re-use runoff to help reduce utility costs. We work hand in hand with the architect and developer with State and County regulations and requirements in mind, to come up with an effective solution that fits the goals of the project.
In addition to developing stormwater solutions on a variety of different projects, other services that we provide include:
- Grading Design
- Construction administration
- Septic and wastewater
- Surveying and mapping
- Water resources
- Sediment and erosion control
- Agency permitting
