Water Resources

Water resources, by far, represent the vast majority of our experience. Though our firm was founded in 2008, the staff of Summit Engineering Group provide decades of experience in the water resources industry. This experience has afforded our staff the opportunity to become very familiar with regulatory changes and trends, as well as funding agencies within this industry. A glimpse of experience in the water resources industry is shown below.

Our staff works with the respective approval agency during the design process so that permitting proceeds as efficiently as possible, implementing feasible and effective BMP’s.
