Hydrology / Hydraulic Analyses

Kimley-Horn can provide hydrology / hydraulic consulting services to meet your goals.

Whether you are trying to build infrastructure, develop land, improve commerce and recreation, or restore a habitat, hydrology and hydraulic efforts can significantly impact the schedule and cost of your project.

Hydraulic systems are unique, often requiring a significant amount of money and resources for optimization and may not provide an immediate return. Additionally, with the complexity of local, state, and federal requirements, permitting can take years. Resolving your hydrology and hydraulic engineering challenges requires experience and understanding, as well as a sense of how the system can work as part of the overall project.
