Watershed Planning

Perhaps your watershed is impaired or is impacted by flooding. Or, perhaps your community already enjoys a well-maintained watershed as a source of clean water for utility and recreational uses. In either case, watershed planning plays a vital role in the health of your community. We use principles of sound watershed planning to help you understand the interaction between environmental and manmade elements within your watershed and how it affects your area. Gannett Fleming can help you manage these interactions to achieve, or simply maintain, a high-quality and sustainable watershed.

Our Experience

We partner with communities like yours to develop a comprehensive framework for reducing flood risk, restoring impaired waterways, and protecting overall watershed health. We help clients understand the unique natural and built conditions in their watershed, along with any stressors, such as bottlenecks and nonpoint source pollutants, that may affect those conditions. Our team brings innovative, sustainable solutions that employ natural processes to eliminate constrictions, decrease pollutant loadings, and restore and maintain watershed health.

Agile and Responsive Programs
We recognize that proper watershed planning is an everchanging process that can be affected by many dynamic variables such as regulation, risk, and climate change. Your watershed plan must be equally dynamic, with the ability to adapt and change. From visioning and goalsetting through funding and program implementation, our watershed planning services will provide a flexible foundation for your community’s evolving needs.
