Almost every project, big and small, now involves some form of stormwater management component. At Upper Canada Consultants, we know that planning and designing systems to manage stormwater resources takes a strong combination of imagination and technical knowledge to anticipate the specific problems a community or project can encounter. These include everything from watershed planning with geographic information systems to environmental concerns such as fishery and wetlands preservation, stormwater quality enhancement, groundwater recharge, and erosion protection.
