Surface and near-surface hydrology

Our functional understanding of water flow across a site, through site soils, or through a watershed, as well as familiarity with soil attributes that affect potential for erosion, runoff, contamination and related water quality or quantity issues are fundamental for almost any project affected by seasonal or year-round water flows, common in the Pacific Northwest.

Site-specific information about soils and shallow groundwater is essential to fully utilize the potential of the natural on-site soil/plant/water system as a root-growth foundation, a treatment medium and a water quality buffer. PRS&W Inc. can evaluate and describe key geomorphologic, soil and hydrologic characteristics that will affect site vegetation, surface and shallow subsurface water control and treatment systems.
