As climate change becomes a reality, designing sustainable and resilient infrastructure and development projects has become more critical for safeguarding our communities. By integrating stormwater with building and landscape systems, we design comprehensive sustainable solutions to promote the filtration, retention, evaporation, infiltration, and reuse of rainwater.

Using principles of biomimicry, ecohydrology, and ecological restoration, and often incorporating rainwater harvesting, Nitsch Engineering of DC’s integrated approach results in sites that more closely reflect natural ecological patterns than traditional engineering techniques, while accomplishing the program objectives.
