Stormwater Management

Managing water in urban environments is a challenge. Hard surfaces, pollutants, and aging infrastructure leads to urban water quality and flooding issues. FreshWater is committed to managing stormwater with innovative solutions that help restore urban waterways and stormwater systems. Green infrastructure is often a great solution for mitigating these problems.

Prairie View Lane and Lakeshore Drive Stormwater Study

FreshWater performed a stormwater drainage alternatives analysis for the City of Mequon.  FW engineers evaluated local surface and sub-surface stormwater infrastructure to determine cost-effective techniques to relieve ongoing neighborhood flooding. Culvert sizing, ditch widening, vegetation maintenance, and excavation of storage basins were all considered during the analysis. Model findings were presented at several public meetings, with FW providing implementation timelines and construction estimates for each potential alternative.
