Stormwater Management

Stormwater Management MWHSmart Solutions for Early Management of Stormwater

Leveraging our global wastewater and stormwater management experience, MWH, now part of Stantec, provides a full range of stormwater management services based on sustainable water management principles. We bring our clients extensive stormwater infrastructure knowledge and experience with complex, urban pollution issues. Our experts are able to identify improvement opportunities and provide optimised, cost-effective, pollution-free energy solutions throughout the entire hydrologic and hydraulic urban water cycle.

In addition to piping, storage and treatment, MWH counsels our clients to redesign the urban environment to better handle wet weather before run-off enters the sanitary, storm or combined sewer systems. We believe the best place to manage wet weather is as early as possible in the system, handling storms in this manner is more sustainable, less expensive, and more cost-effective to manage in the long term.
