Balance Hydrologics, Inc. is a full-service hydrology consulting firm established in 1988, headquartered in Berkeley, California, with offices in Truckee and Santa Cruz. Our firm is composed of professional staff with a broad array of experience in California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, most of whom have an advanced graduate degree in the fields of hydrology, geology or engineering. We offer flexible and practical approaches to problems, good communication on complex and controversial projects, and we develop realistic, implementable solutions. One of our principal goals is providing planners, engineers, biologists, and land managers with rigorous analyses quantifying watershed processes. We couple intensive field study with application of cutting‐edge modeling platforms and analyses to meet the specific needs of the habitat or watershed manager. Most investigations are designed to measure, simulate, and plan for the effects of specific land uses on aquatic, riparian, or estuarine habitat conditions. Our projects cover a full spectrum of services, from studies to establish baseline hydrologic, hydraulic, geologic, and water quality conditions to developing mitigation or restoration designs, construction‐phase support, and post‐project monitoring.
