WSN’s water resources engineers in MN & ND analyze watersheds, develop SWPPPs, collect data for streamgaging, and provide hydrologic/hydraulic modeling. Our engineers specialize in water management as it relates to flood management, stormwater, and water quality. We are extremely well-versed in the latest technology and policies regarding stormwater and watershed management. Our water resources engineering services encompass planning, survey, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of projects ranging from conveyance structures and drainage systems to urban treatment and attenuation facilities to large floodwater storage impoundments and flood levees. We provide water resources engineering services from eight locations, including Alexandria, Bemidji, Brainerd/Baxter, Crookston, East Grand Forks, Forest Lake, Grand Forks, and Rochester.
GIS / Cartography
Spatial data is key to understanding what is going on in your area, and we have considerable Geographic Information Systems (GIS) experience. Ranging from high-end cartographic services to database management and modeling, or even technical support, we can help you get the most out of this essential technology. Our water resources engineers are actively involved in helping set statewide methodologies and standards for LiDAR-based projects.
Hydrologic / Hydraulic Modeling and Analysis
By using industry-leading modeling techniques, our engineers deliver useful information that benefits every aspect of watershed management— from flow reduction strategies to water quality—both at a single culvert location to an entire watershed scale. High water levels threaten the structural integrity and serviceability of our streets and highways. Our highly-skilled engineers perform hydrologic/hydraulic analyses and identify the causes, constraints, and corrective actions to maintain service levels and road life cycles.
Project Design / Construction
With more than 30 years of experience, our team members are dedicated to quality artisanship. Key support staff are Mn/DOT Certified Inspectors, allowing us to work on a range of projects while ensuring the work is done to design and within budget.
Our water resources team has decades of experience in developing stormwater solutions. This includes analysis and design of urban storm conveyance, treatment systems, and the development of Stormwater Pollution Prevention Programs (SWPPPs). We have extensive knowledge and adaptability to ever changing agency and permitting requirements ensuring our delivery of compliant and effective solutions to our clients.
Flow data is essential for proper decision-making. With multiple rigs and experienced staff ready to respond at a moment’s notice, our engineers can be onsite to collect data when timing is critical.
