Floodplains and Watersheds

Utilizing modern hydrologic and hydraulic modelling software

COLE has completed a wide variety of studies, master plans and mapping exercises related to floodplain and watershed management. The objectives and scopes of these projects vary greatly and range from city wide drainage studies focusing on historic flooding areas or new growth zones to site specific floodplain analyses to confirm development limits.

To complete these studies, COLE uses a wide variety of modern hydrologic and hydraulic modelling software, fully integrated with CAD and GIS platforms. Our team is recognized as industry leaders in the field, and our technical expertise is complemented by our strong relationships with environmental agencies and our ability to engage the public and stakeholders.
