SMA performs drainage structure analysis and modeling to efficiently control stormwater drainage, analyzing the channel flow and modeling the backwater curve to effectively characterize the drainage basin influence on a drainage structure. SMA provides designs to protect and control against erosion and floods and has used above ground channelization and below ground conveyance system to achieve project goals. SMA provides development of Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans and state mandated Sediment Control Plans, including the development of best management practices. SMA’s drainage analysis and design experience includes civil site design, watershed hydrology and yield studies, hydraulic analysis of natural and manmade water courses, GIS mapping and analysis, hydraulic structure design and structural engineering. SMA has several staff with training and background in desert stormwater management and floodplain evaluation.
