Coastal Resources Management

HW’s integrated coastal water management approach focuses on the multiple linkages between land-use and coastal ecosystems to help clients develop comprehensive options that provide for both sustainable uses of coastal resources and their overall environmental health.  This approach involves close cooperation with private and public interests, innovative technologies, expert scientific investigations, and strong community participation.  Our firm has developed long-term, comprehensive watershed management plans for several key watersheds along the East Coast involving the development of water budgets, evaluation of water quality and pollutant sources, hydrologic and habitat assessments, watershed delineation, public outreach and training, review of federal, state, and local regulations, and identification of best management practices (BMPs).
