Our Process

Our Process

After 50 years of service and more than 6000 completed projects, we know that no situation, site, or need is the same –this is why we tailor our solutions to fit each individual project while meeting customer needs.

It takes a deep understanding of water’s tendencies to engineer methodologies and develop solutions that maintain water control. Leveraging decades of experience, we work in partnership with our clients to accurately assess each site’s unique history so that we are able to predict how water may be controlled, no matter what the future may hold. Through this up-front collaborative approach and in-depth analysis, we design detailed plans to complete the process on time and within budget.


At the start of each engagement, we find it more important than ever to invest our time with clients on these critical areas, as climate becomes increasingly complex and weather patterns increasingly unpredictable:

Steps 1



It is vital—at the very start of our engagement— that we understand each client’s unique concerns, perspectives, goals, and history. The time and attention we put into this initial phase no doubt pays dividends in the end for the client. It allows us to identify crucial factors and nuances of a site, determine various potential solution options, plan for typically under-planned contingencies, ensure we have the right specialists ready, and prepare for acute weather situations with the best solution possible.

Steps 2


Risk Analysis

Analyzing potential risks—whether financial, physical assets or threats affecting the health and safety of people—is critical to every plan that is created. Whenever working with water, understanding and mitigating the associated risks are crucial parts of maintaining safety and completing a successful project. We work diligently to create a comprehensive risk analysis and mitigation plan for your situation, calculating both present and possible future risks.

Steps 3


Site Survey

Our team will conduct an exhaustive virtual and physical site survey. Based on existing data or engineering analyses, terrain/topography analysis; past and expected weather patterns; present and future real estate developments; and, of course, nearby sources and bodies of water. If necessary, we will consult with local and federal entities to gain a deeper understanding of both the geology of the area as well as the recent behavior of nearby waterways. Additionally, we can, if required, call upon experts in statistical, probabilistic data analysis. Our team will pursue precedent and unprecedented methodologies to enable us to better understand the “lay of the land”, no matter the complexity of the situation.
