Water Resources Management

Water resources management is the science of preserving our natural water environment for today and future generations. Waterway impoundment caused by the construction of dams, pollution caused by land erosion and sediment runoff, and excessive nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous have a devastating effect on our waterways. Viewed globally, water quality and water supply are two of the most pervasive environmental problems that face humanity.

JMT is proud to be a leader in applying sound engineering principles to solve these problems and achieve environmentally sensitive and sustainable designs. JMT presents innovative solutions to some of the toughest problems facing our clients. For example, for the Maryland State Highway Administration, JMT developed an erosion and sediment control plan for the Inter-County Connector that used multiple controls (silt fence, inlet protection and sediment basins) in series to protect the sensitive Little Paint Branch receiving waters from sediment pollution. Bridges were designed to not only pass the 100-year design storm but also span the floodplain to reduce impacts to adjacent non-tidal wetlands. JMT also assists local environmental groups in developing low impact stormwater management, Best Management Practices, including rain gardens and bioretention basins, to treat urban runoff. These are just a few examples of how JMT designers can preserve and restore the natural water resources environment.
