Stormwater Management Services
When the Water’s Rising, We Will
Help Keep Your Feet Dry
LAN offers the complete spectrum of stormwater management services, including initial planning and feasibility studies, experienced design engineering and construction support, and permitting and regulatory compliance.
2-Dimensional (2D) Modeling
2D hydrodynamic modeling has become a powerful tool to investigate areas impacted by flooding during rainfall events. By modeling historic rainfall events, 2D modeling helps accurately demonstrate rainfall depth and flow direction. Our 2D modeling specialists apply practical modeling techniques to fully understand stormwater conveyance system performance during flood events, identify the root cause of flooding problems, develop solutions on localized and regional scales, and document improvement benefits.
Water Quality Management & Modeling
With more communities experiencing substantial population growth, urbanization, and aging infrastructure, receiving water bodies are becoming increasingly polluted by urban runoff and wastewater leaks. The LAN team has developed water quality tools to quantify the cost and effectiveness of proposed water quality improvement measures. Our water quality team can work directly with communities and agencies to address existing impairments, as well as guide future watershed planning to improve sustainability and quality of life.
Community Rating System (CRS)
CRS is a flood insurance premium discount program for communities in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to adopt and enforce higher standards for better floodplain management. LAN provides assistance in all areas of the CRS process, including new CRS applications, verification, program optimization, and individual activities within the CRS program.
