Using ecosystem services to mitigate storm water impacts:

Pristine streams (blue line) are more stable than "flashy streams" (red line) created from urbanization:
Ideally base flows would be higher during dry times and flooding would peak at lower levels and at later times.


No matter where you are in the watershed, we design ecological projects that "buy you time" and have you prepared during large rain events.
- Planning at the property, neighborhood, and mini-watershed scales
- Retrofitting existing infrastructure to lessen impacts on municipal storm water systems
- Urban stream restoration / rehabilitation modelling and design
- Micro-watershed analysis / Land use patterns and impervious surface evaluation
