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.
Our administrative staff is an integral part of the Jacobson team. Familiar to many of our clients and with the status of ongoing projects, they provide excellent support for the technical professionals.
We utilize the latest design software and our professional staff is trained in the most current engineering technologies to optimize efficiency and best meet our clients’ needs.
