STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

Sustainable design, floodplain management and stormwater quality all pose unique challenges to municipalities at various stages of master planning and community growth. Robinson Engineering offers proven solutions for these issues and can work within your existing infrastructure. We can help when residents are experiencing drainage and flooding problems—and demanding answers from their local municipalities.

 

As technology changes and trends shift, Robinson Engineering keeps pace and remains on the cutting edge with stormwater components such as water quality design and Best Management Practices.

Subjected to frequent flooding, the disasters of 2008 exposed the extreme inadequacies of the City’s stormwater conveyance system. At that time, more than 1,550 residents had to be evacuated from the City of Watseka when four hundred and thirty homes, businesses and most of the schools were badly flooded.
