Watercourse Districts

Streambank and bed modifications coupled with water surface profile modeling is our passion. Years ago, urban channels were lined with concrete to lower flood profiles, allowing development to the channel edge. Modern concepts involve returning the stream to a natural state, removing concrete and developing a stream system that accommodates habitat, recreation and a renewed ecosystem.

SSE works with the agencies responsible for maintaining streams, waterways and floodzones. As one of a handful of Certified Floodplain Managers in the State of Wisconsin, our Principal works with communities and private property owners to ensure future development or stream modifications are not detrimental to stream function. We provide hydraulic analysis, flood studies, and mapping of floodplains.
