Watershed Master Planning

Watershed Consulting can help take the complexity out of the Watershed Master Planning process because we know water. Determining how best to return a watershed’s hydrologic function to pre-development conditions can be a daunting task. The mosaic of landuses, existing traditional stormwater infrastructure (catch basins, pipes, open channels), stormwater best management practices (detention basins, ponds) and natural surface waters all add up to create a complex array of potential stormwater pathways. Watershed Consulting specializes in breaking down these pathways into simple, easy to understand models and can provide you with the means to better comprehend, plan for, and design stormwater retrofits that will blend in to your existing system and help you accomplish your target goals.

In Vermont, Watershed Consulting has worked extensively with State agencies and local officials on a variety of projects related to the Flow Restoration Program. We understand this process inside and out and can help guide you through all the steps required to obtain your final approval. And we understand Vermont’s economy – we always aim to minimize your expenditures while maximizing your results.
