Stormwater Management Sustainable stormwater management involves and integrates multiple considerations during the design | build of water resource management solutions. SCS Engineers helps the private and the public sectors determine the quantitative and qualitative factors important to achieve sustainable solutions and to meet future water demand forecasts. Quantitative factors such as return on investment and financing are always important. Qualitative factors impact the longer-term value of a solution, and they do have implications to the bottom-line. These factors include social elements, such as waterway health; political elements; and environmental factors, such as climate change. Environmental consciousness is growing, and SCS is increasingly hired for our expertise in developing appropriate self-imposed standards for ensuring that the water quality of our clients’ discharges remain beneficial to the downstream natural ecosystem. SCS’s stormwater clients have facilities spanning a large variety of industries, from solid waste to manufacturing to industrial waste, but they all have one thing in common: they all appreciate knowing the degree to which they are serving as protectors of the environment by meeting or exceeding water quality standards.
