Leaders in dam removal & fish passage

As pioneers of river restoration on the East Coast, our team has learned to blend the science, engineering, and art of restoring river form and process. We are passionate about rivers and immerse ourselves in understanding the design challenges of each project. Our river restoration work includes dam removal, channel and floodplain restoration, fish passage improvement, river bank stabilization, instream habitat enhancement, riparian connectivity improvement, and flood mitigation.
