Storm Sewer Engineering

Improving Water Quality and Quantity

F&V enhances the quantity and quality of storm water management to protect human and environmental health. By understanding how and where your storm water runoff flows, we can design, engineer, and construct retentions, detentions, and drains that properly manage storm water. Aiming for both quantity and quality storm water management allows communities to reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment.

We are well-versed in the preparation, planning, design, and evaluation of storm drainage and storm water management systems. Every year we assist our clients with preliminary drainage studies or drainage system improvement projects to alleviate flooding issues. We also provide floodplain analysis, underground and above ground detention design, and EGLE permitting services for our clients.

As part of the initial evaluation and conceptual planning of a storm water management project we consider potential innovative design opportunities that may be available for a particular project. By implementing Low Impact Development (LID) and Best Management Practices (BMPs), we are often able to provide greater treatment of storm water runoff before it reaches our natural resources.
