  • Identify appropriate soil tests corresponding to BMP strategies during the preliminary design investigation
  • Analyze hydrologic and hydraulic data of the site's existing and proposed conditions to determine stormwater management needs and high performance opportunities
  • Label existing vegetation and develop a plan for protecting existing plant material to preserve habitat, minimize site disturbance, and reduce capital costs for reinstallation of new plants
