The goal of stormwater management is to allow human development to interact with wet weather in a manner that is socially, economically, and environmentally responsible.

Engineering stormwater management involves the difficult challenge of balancing these competing needs.

Improper stormwater management has led to flood damage, degradation of water quality, and unnatural changes in groundwater hydrology, prompting extensive regulations to minimize these impacts.

Mott MacDonald is committed to achieving responsible and sustainable stormwater management. This involves educating clients, the public, and project stakeholders on issues and regulations and guiding them through the process of selecting solutions that are economically and environmentally feasible.

Advanced stormwater analysis

Regulatory requirements and project constraints are analyzed using the most advanced stormwater analysis tools. A combination of green and gray infrastructure is employed through site-specific best management practices and watershed-wide master planning to responsibly achieve project needs.

Looking to the future, the EPA is addressing additional controls on nutrients, suspended solids, bacteria, and other constituents which will likely be the basis for the end of pipe stormwater discharges. Changes in weather patterns are also affecting the future of stormwater management. Mott MacDonald is prepared to meet these challenges.

The projects shown in this section illustrate our broad experience and capabilities in the planning, design, construction, and operation of conventional and green solutions for stormwater management.
