Hydrology studies analyze the amount of stormwater run-off that would be generated during a storm event from a specific project design perspective. In contrast, a hydraulic analysis evaluates the actual drainage devices which are used to convey the volume of water calculated from the hydrology study. Combined, these two assessments ensure proper drainage to prevent erosion and flooding during storm events.
CNA uses the latest software and technology to prepare technical reports which are reviewed by the project’s local governing jurisdictions. Once we analyze any pipes, culverts, channels, rivers, ponds, etc., we can demonstrate how a development’s drainage will not negatively impact neighboring properties, water rights, or cause flooding hazards.
