When we got to the point where we needed to develop a strategy for stormwater treatment, we contacted Kennedy/Jenks... They helped us develop a strategy for complying with the stormwater permit...They completely understand the financial and operational challenges...tailored solutions that (will) fit our specific constraints and needs...
Until recently, stormwater management focused on flood control. Stormwater quality, and its impact on receiving waters, was an afterthought.
An increasing focus of the environmental agencies is driving the need to protect the health of our waterways. Kennedy/Jenks is a leader in developing and implementing stormwater management solutions for our clients in industry and municipalities. We not only engineer systems to convey and treat stormwater, but also plan in anticipation of new regulations to control pollutants, including metals such as copper and zinc. Kennedy/Jenks has pioneered some of the first stormwater treatment systems employing Low Impact Development (LID) techniques to help clients provide cost-effective, forward-thinking solutions.
With experience in the changing regulatory process, including more stringent implementation of stormwater permits, our engineers and scientists have the knowledge and experience to help you navigate the maze of regulations and develop solutions that meet your needs. We work with you to develop solutions to reduce your regulatory burden, incorporate your operational constraints, and provide options for compliance. Our solutions have ranged from simple operational changes and best management practices (BMPs) implementation to stormwater treatment systems flexible for changing site use.
Kennedy/Jenks has served on several statewide regulatory advisory committees involving municipal, industrial, and construction stormwater as well as low impact development (LID).
