Surface Water

Maximize sustainability.

The practice of water resources has expanded in recent years to include heavier emphasis on impaired water bodies, water quality, and regulatory compliance. Likewise, WSB’s approach has evolved to include integrated design and analysis teams with expertise in engineering, biology, ecology, landscape architecture, and policy development. Our teams strive to balance engineering necessity, with ecosystem and social impacts to meet the triple bottom line. When achieved, this balance leads to more resilient and sustainable water resources infrastructure.

Our surface water support includes:

  • Stormwater master plans (SWMP)
  • Floodplain management and flood control design
  • Flood Insurance Studies and Letters of Map Change (LOMAs/LOMRs/CLOMRs)
