Water Resources & Dam Design

NV5’s water resources staff offers a wide range of experience and expertise in the design and analysis of complex drainage and stormwater management systems, flood abatement projects, culverts and bridges, wetlands hydrology, and wastewater treatment and conveyance facilities. The range of projects completed by NV5 include stormwater collection and conveyance facilities for residential developments, commercial developments, local, county and state public roadways and public recreation facilities. We have also provided designs for stormwater control facilities including embankment, excavation, infiltration, detention, retention and water quality basins. Designs are supported by detailed hydraulic and hydrologic course studies to determine floodway and flood plain constraints; scour and stability analyses for bridges; hydrologic analyses to support wetland mitigation design facilities, and dam designs, including dam break analyses.
