Balance Hydrologics applies a multi-faceted approach to stream and river restoration projects that best utilizes the range of expertise in the firm. We typically begin our projects by evaluating the project site conditions and objectives within the context of the broader geomorphic and environmental setting. This leads to a fundamental understanding of the watershed- and reach-scale geomorphic and hydrologic factors that influence the conditions at the site.
Once the underlying processes are identified, Balance geomorphologists and engineers are equipped to further the design process using the latest computational methods and hydrologic and hydraulic modeling tools coupled with the breadth of practical experience garnered in previous projects. The end product is typically a set of construction plans and specifications that are permittable, constructible, and cost-effective. Our familiarity with permitting requirements and sensitivity to environmental impacts directly addresses other key factors for successful project implementation.
