Watershed urbanization, where natural vegetation and forested areas are converted to impervious surfaces results in decreased infiltration, increased runoff and adverse impacts to water quality and aquatic habitats through thermal impacts and the introduction of increased sediments, nutrients, hydrocarbons, and other pollutants. Water quality protection programs and policies resulting from amendments to the Water Quality Act, have created a regulatory framework for addressing stormwater pollution from both point and nonpoint sources. Utilizing this framework, Nathan L. Jacobson & Associates have been actively involved with the implementation of regulatory program objectives through the development of comprehensive watershed management plans to the design of individual stormwater retrofit projects involving source control and prevention, stormwater treatment, and the application of both Low Impact Development and Best Management Techniques.
At Jacobson, quality and service is our commitment.
