Modern cities are ever expanding, transforming the land from natural, rural, or vacant conditions to “urbanized,” which inevitably results in a decrease in the previous, undeveloped surface and increase in impervious surface. This urbanization of watersheds has historically caused increases in stormwater runoff flowrates and volumes, as well as the increase in frequency and magnitude of flooding.
The regulatory environment related to stormwater management is ever-changing and continues to grow in complexity. Walker Partners is committed to modern, stormwater management practices, methodologies, and excellence. We are proactive in leading both our public and private sector clients in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of best management stormwater practices.
