Storms are capable of dropping significant amounts of water on a community in a short amount of time. If a community has drainage issues, this can lead to standing water on streets and on sidewalks. Not only is this an inconvenience, but long-term standing water can also cause health concerns for the residents of a community.

At Wessler, we understand these problems. We work with our clients to solve issues like these by designing new storm sewers, hybrid ditches, and roadside ditches and culverts. We can also 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 are also familiar with funding agencies and can provide assistance to 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.
