Water Resource Engineering

As consultants to federal, state, and local government, our environmental engineers and scientists marry the principles of engineering, biology, hydrogeology, and earth sciences to develop environmentally sensitive project designs.


We have long considered it important to not only understand, but also respect the local, state, and federal environmental regulations that govern this work.

We understand that a design is only good if it can be permitted and built. Therefore, embedded within our multi-disciplinary team is extensive expertise in environmental permitting, supporting our project teams throughout SLR to develop designs that improve the management of water resources and preserve our natural environment.

Supported by our thorough knowledge of surface water management, our work seeks to integrate water and nature through our understanding of art and science, within the communities where we live, work, and play.
