Watershed Management

jim_kovach_glengary-wv_02_contoursBy mapping natural ecosystems that reveal watershed boundaries land owners can develop integrated plans for hydrologic modeling, including irrigation, storm water storage assessment and flood analysis.

Watershed analysis is not limited to large scale delineation. It is applicable to all scales of property, from urban lots to the many square miles of major river drainages.

Watershed Assessment Modeling and Mapping

We utilize GIS and fieldwork to gather topographic and slope data that is then used to identify potential watershed stabilization and restoration needs.

We examine a property thoroughly and seek out opportunities for slowing down and retaining the water that flows across the landscape, keeping precious topsoil where it is needed most.

By making use of water where it falls, crop yields are augmented and natural sources of potable and non-potable water are readily available for practical utilization.

Our services include complete water and soils assessments and recommendations for the following:

  • Keyline design and contour mapping
  • Water flow management and planning
  • Retaining water and nutrients on the property
  • Erosion control
  • Best management practices (design and construction)
  • Riparian zone restoration
  • Rain garden planning
