Stormwater Management

AKRF is a leader in developing innovative practices for stormwater management.

We perform water quality modeling to predict water quality characteristics using mathematical simulation techniques. Our water quality models take into account the type and quantity of pollutants, how they move through a waterbody or channel network, and other specific factors, and make it possible to project, with a high degree of accuracy, whether a project will have impacts on water quality.

The type of modeling we do takes representative samples of surface water and/or sediment to determine the characteristics of a waterbody or system. It requires the development of a sampling method or protocol that will be both accurate and cost effective.

The plans we then prepare outline best management practices (BMPs) and other methods for controlling erosion of land and sedimentation runoff from construction and land development. 

The scope of our services includes:

  • Water quantity and quality modeling
  • Structural and Non-Structural BMPs
  • Floodplain studies
  • Stream restoration
  • Sediment and erosion control
