Water resource management and planning is the practice of developing and optimizing systems and processes to leverage available water supply for various end uses. Whether for wildlife and their habitat or drinking water, understanding how to best use and reuse water resources is crucial for all living things. Water resources is an important aspect for nearly every industry, involving engineers and scientists who understand practical methods related to hydrology, hydraulics, groundwater, surface water, and risk management.

Trihydro is experienced in the entire hydrologic cycle (the circulation of water from the ground to the atmosphere and back again) and promotes the coordinated development and management of water, land, and related resources to optimize the way water interfaces with society's needs. We routinely evaluate and develop water resources to support agricultural, municipal, and industrial water supplies, flood control and floodplain management, and environmental uses. Our Water Resources Team has a proven track record of successfully delivering reliable and defensible water resource projects to meet our client’s needs.

Water Resources Management and Planning

WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT AND PLANNING

Water plays a crucial role in industry, recreation, and our everyday lives. Proper water resource planning and management are critical for our common future. Whether a project involves identifying or developing regional water supplies; managing excess flood water or stormwater; navigating the permitting or environmental monitoring process; or assessing and restoring watersheds, wetlands, or streams; Trihydro can help achieve these water resource goals.

Water Resources Permitting and Compliance

WATER RESOURCES PERMITTING AND COMPLIANCE

To help manage and protect water supply, water resource projects often involve a web of regulatory and permitting requirements. Proactive communication and coordination with applicable agencies promote efficient and successful project planning, reporting, and overall success. Trihydro provides permitting services for local, state, federal government agencies, and private industries.

HYDROLOGY AND HYDRAULICS

As experts in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, we utilize a wide variety of existing modeling packages. Our experience includes the development and application of hydrologic models (HEC-HMS, HSPF, SAC-SMA, SNOW-17, TR-55 methods, etc.), hydraulic models (1-D and 2-D HEC-RAS, FLO-2D, etc.), and reservoir operations models (HEC-ResSim, RES-J, etc.). We also develop customized modeling applications, supported by our software development team, to meet specific user needs. In addition to surface hydrology and hydraulics applications, we have expertise in groundwater flow (MODFLOW) ...

GROUNDWATER

Effectively using groundwater resources is an important component of meeting the water demands of people, systems, and facilities. Groundwater exploration and development often involves understanding local and regional geology and associated aquifers, conducting studies and field investigations to evaluate production potential and water quality, and designing, permitting, and drilling water wells to access subsurface water supplies. Groundwater extraction or dewatering may be needed to facilitate unrelated construction projects and involves many of these same processes.

Surface Water
SURFACE WATER

Surface water encompasses any body of water on the Earth's surface, and along with groundwater, supports a myriad of human uses, including drinking water, irrigation, livestock, industrial uses, hydropower, and recreation. Increasing demand for water has created the need to efficiently manage these resources to provide a continuous, economically feasible water supply for domestic, agricultural, and manufacturing uses.
