Water Resources Engineering and Design Services

Urbana Pond Retrofits Frederick, Maryland

KCI offers a complete range of water resources services that apply a multi-disciplined approach to watershed assessments, water quantity/quality management and stormwater facilities design. In addition to investigating, sampling, assessing and monitoring surface water facilities, we conduct planning studies and guide our clients through environmental permitting programs. Our innovative solutions address challenges ranging from stream restoration, channel relocation and flood control, to stream crossing, bridge replacement, erosion and sediment control, best management practices, open and closed storm drain design, floodplain studies, bridge scour analysis and countermeasure design. Services include:

  • FEMA/floodplain studies
  • GIS mapping
  • Watershed and ecological assessments
  • Water quality and aquatic resource analyses
  • Wetlands analysis, creation, restoration and enhancement design
  • Benthic macroinvertebrate, geomorphic and hydrographic surveys
  • Fisheries studies
  • TMDL analysis and management
  • Hydraulic and hydrologic analysis
  • Stormwater management, best management practices (BMPs)
  • Erosion and sediment control
  • NPDES permitting and regulatory compliance
  • Bridge scour analysis
  • Closed storm drain design and inspection
  • Stormwater management/erosion and sediment control review services
  • Fish passage and dam removal studies and design
  • Natural channel design and streambank stabilization
  • Environmental and post-construction monitoring
  • Construction management and inspection

Our team understands that a complete water resources program requires a multi-disciplinary approach to planning, water management and facilities design. Every site, whether in an urban or rural setting, poses a unique set of challenges, and as consulting engineers, we recognize the delicate balance between a technologically progressive society and an ecologically sound environment. Our team is experienced in implementing cutting-edge solutions to sustainably manage and treat surface water, including bioretention facilities, floating treatment wetlands, and rain gardens.

Environmental and Water Quality Monitoring, Statewide, Delaware

To also help clients manage the quality of surface water runoff, KCI investigates, samples, assesses and monitors sites; performs planning studies; and guides clients through environmental permitting programs, such as the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4), and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) programs administered by the Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, engineers develop erosion and sediment control measures to protect surface water during construction activities. When water resources management efforts require design services, KCI offers the professional expertise of civil, structural, environmental, and geotechnical engineers to support planning, design and construction phases as necessary.
