Coastal & Riverine Engineering

Coastal & Riverine Engineering

By studying a region's hydrologic and ecologic features, as well as its social, cultural and economic impacts, Fenstermaker’s hydraulic & hydrologic (H&H) team provides smart solutions on all coastal and riverine projects. Knowledgeable about the uniqueness and complexity of coastal wetlands and inland water systems, Fenstermaker’s accomplished H&H engineers have completed extensive numerical model studies, including freshwater diversion and coastal restoration structures. These projects involve the investigation and modeling of critical factors such as cavitation potential, ice and debris jams, hydrodynamic and sediment transport processes, and dynamic loading of water control structures. With extensive experience in applying non-parametric statistical methods in analyses, hydrology, and water resources, our team brings valuable foresight to every project. We work to improve the overall process, saving you time and money.
