For more than 15 years, WRS has helped the City of Mission Hills model, inventory and GIS map its enclosed and open-channel stormwater systems. How it became integral to the city's improvement planning.
Sometimes managing an engineering project means managing the problems that aren’t anticipated upfront by a client. Find out how WRS made the process smoother for Platte County in this drainage improvement project.
From pipes to open channels, Little Delaware to Big Muddy, neighborhood to multi-state watershed, $2,000 to $20 million, our water-management civil engineering solutions always put your needs first, and the needs of your constituents. For more than 10 years, Water Resources Solutions has sought out the public works managers who actively engage in developing challenging project alternatives, backed by meticulous physical science informed by ecological imagination. That's how we've earned the coveted role as hometown stormwater artisanal engineer. We live where we work, and we work for you.
Hydraulics & Hydrology From sophisticated computational fluid dynamics to building and pumping water through physical models (saving 30% to 70% in budgeted design costs in the process!), WRS is your first stop for expertise in cutting-edge and practically applied H&H engineering solutions.
Eco-Restoration Honestly, if you find yourself holding your breath every time it storms on your latest green engineering project, it's time to rethink not your commitment to sustainability, but your consulting partners. WRS's solutions are sustainable in the truest sense...they last!
Stormwater Management Municipal councils to federal agencies, NGOs to private property owners--every global citizen has a stake in getting the right answers to today's stormwater management questions. Find out how WRS challenges to old thinking to craft new answers.
Integrated Watershed Management City or farm, public or private, water supply, conservation, diversion and containment all must fit comfortably within the expertise of your watershed planning partner. WRS solutions respect the search for workable harmony that dependably protects our water resources.
Hydraulic Structures As our nation's aging infrastructure groans around us, the need for fresh, agile, geographically aware water engineering grows even more critical. If your civil engineer has limited water expertise, your options in solutions immediately shrink. Why take the risk?
Value Engineering Our engineers are in constant demand to team on Value Engineering Studies for good reason: We practice what we preach in our own projects, every day. If your consultants' engineering value equation always seems to begin with what it's worth to them, give us a call instead.
30% to 70% Design costs saved through better modeling
>500 Finished projects
<5% Historical change-order rate
>500,000 Linear feet of stream restored
If some days you feel that the civil engineering solutions have grown a little too cookie-cutter, that you're presented with too little choice in the consultants at your door, don't settle for less. Our proven track record that underpins a value-engineering approach to projects with a combined physical/numerical hydrologic modeling method significantly improves both cost and performance for even the smallest projects. From stormwater to hydraulic structures, integrated watershed management to river, lake, and wetland restoration, we're not afraid to look at all the alternatives to find the best solution that reduces uncertainty for you and the people you serve.
Our engineers are registered in California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wyoming. Our staff includes a Certified Professional in Erosion & Sediment Control, an Associate Value Specialist, and two of only five Diplomates of Water Resource Engineering in the Kansas City region certified by the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers. Water Resources Solutions is active in several professional organizations including the American Public Works Association, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE, Society of American Military Engineers, and the International Erosion Control Association.
"Water Resource Solutions is a terrific asset when it comes to stormwater, creek and urban lake issues. Their design for our urban lake, Willow Lake, was a research and development project where we tried a variety of techniques to deal with issues such as water quality, sediment, erosion and beautification. We have been using them for these type of issues since Don Baker completed our open channel masterplan in 2008. I recommend WRS all the time to my fellow city administrators and think you would be very happy with their work."
"We have enjoyed working with Water Resources Solutions on several projects in the city of Leavenworth, because we’ve found them to be very environmentally conscious, and at the same time, they’re not afraid of complex stormwater problems. We’ve enjoyed the innovative solutions they’ve put together, and they often come up with really creative solutions to some of the most difficult engineering challenges.”
“I highly recommend Water Resources Solutions as a proven candidate for a project to which their engineering design and construction management services can be utilized. Looking back at the 3-year project, their quality of work has been second-to-none.”
