Water Resources

At VHB, we are driven by the need to protect the environment and improve our communities’ resiliency to climate change. VHB’s water resources team integrates stormwater, watershed, floodplain, ecological, and water quality planning, assessment, and design to help guide public- and private-sector clients through their most important transportation, land development, and infrastructure challenges.

Weaving together technology-enabled solutions with our extensive knowledge, our team of more than 50 hydrologists, scientists, and engineers span our geographic footprint to deliver creative and comprehensive solutions to address a wide range of water resources issues. We navigate state and federal regulatory processes to help our clients move projects through the process efficiently—from planning and environmental analyses to conceptual and preliminary designs to final construction plans. VHB partners with our clients and communities to reimagine our environment for the better and be future-focused for tomorrow.
