Climate uncertainties have altered both precipitation and coastal storm surge, in frequency and intensity. Consequently, the flood risk to communities is likely to increase dramatically across the U.S. Our water resources and hydraulic specialists are experienced with a variety of flood control and conveyance facilities including levees, dams, canals, pump stations, detention basins and impoundments, and intake, flow diversion and outlet structures. We utilize our in-depth hydrologic and hydraulic engineering knowledge and apply our extensive experience to assist municipalities in safeguarding their communities and preventing loss of life and property.
Additionally, organizations and communities are increasingly facing the challenges and uncertainties created by climate change. We create resilient systems through the development of integrated engineering, planning and policy solutions. WSP provides vulnerability and risk assessments, hazard planning, and coastal and fresh- water flood protection system design to help clients better prepare for the future.
