Water Resources

People are drawn to water. In fact, approximately 80% of the world’s population lives near water, in part, because we depend on it for many things. Our surface water resources impact the quality of life in our communities. Understanding the impacts of water on the natural and built environment is important for your project success. Through data collection, planning, analysis and design we can shape the impact of our water resources while utilizing best management practices to protect this valuable resource.
