 Stream Restoration and Wetland Mitigation
  • performs stream restoration using natural channel design and function-based stream restoration project process to improve their function and stability
  • performs stream functional assessment, channel stability assessment, fluvial geomorphic assessment and stream classification
  • designs stream and stormwater outfall retrofit projects to meet the TMDL goals by providing functional uplift to maximize the water quality credit potential
  • prepares design plans, cost estimates, and specifications for habitat restoration projects
  • performs environmental mitigation design for wetland mitigation
Stormwater Management (SWM)
  • performs planning and design for new and retrofit stormwater management projects
  • obtains National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits
  • designs and evaluates best management practices
  • prepares SWM reports, plans, specifications and estimates for construction
Hydrology and Hydraulics
  • performs hydrologic and hydraulic modeling and computations necessary for obtaining permits, including those for SWM, Erosion & Sediment (E&S) Control wetland creation and stream restoration
  • calculates TMDL reductions and impervious area credits associated with restoration projects per the Maryland Department of the Environment’s Guidance
Construction Oversight
  • performs construction oversight for ecosystem restoration projects including SWM, streams and wetlands and their associated floodplains and riparian buffers for project implementation
