Storms are capable of dropping significant amounts of water quickly on a community. If a community has drainage issues, those problems can lead to standing water on streets and sidewalks. Not only is it an inconvenience, but long-term standing water also can cause health concerns for community residents.

At Wessler, we understand these problems. We work with our clients to solve issues like these by designing new storm sewers, hybrid ditches, roadside ditches and culverts. We also can rehabilitate existing systems and design detention and retention ponds. Ever conscious of environmental concerns, we evaluate sustainable design options in each of our stormwater drainage projects. We believe investigation is the best first step toward solving any stormwater problem.

Our goal is to create efficiency for our clients by utilizing new and proven technologies in stormwater management. No matter the size or complexity of the project, we provide expert knowledge and service. We also are familiar with funding agencies and can assist clients in applying for project grants and loans. If a client does not have a fund dedicated to stormwater, our engineers are happy to assist with starting a stormwater utility.
