Hydrology & Hydraulics (H&H) utilizes strong technical capabilities to provide efficient and innovative drainage solutions to meet public and private sector client needs across Texas. Our work involves preparing watershed master drainage plans, impact analyses, floodplain impacts and mitigation plans, and design and construction plans for detention ponds and channel improvement projects. We employ expertise at the appropriate level of analysis, whether it’s an evaluation or state-of-the-art 2 D modeling, to get projects approved and constructed.
In 2014, in response to new discharge permit constraints issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), the City of League City was informed that the outfall for the effluent line for the Dallas Salmon Wastewater Treatment Plant (DSWWTP) would need to be moved from its existing location.
