Water Resources

Our Experts

River to Tap’s (R2T) Water Resources and Regulatory Compliance Team is made up of qualified personnel to address various types of projects. We work with municipalities and regulators to develop solutions to protect, improve, store and distribute water. Our engineers and scientists have conducted watershed investigations, water quality evaluations and stormwater management studies of various sizes and complexities. We provide planning, design, and construction services for water resources projects for our clients. Our team applies experiences and emerging technologies to provide sustainable cost-effective solutions that are based on scientific and engineering analysis.

R2T has provided assistance with meeting National Pollution Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) requirements for wastewater planning including developing watershed monitoring plans, watershed assessment plans, watershed protection plans, anti-degradation reviews and environmental information documents.

R2T also provides assistance to municipalities in meeting regulatory mandates related to the CWA and SDWA. We work with department staff and regulators to identify streams for delisting and develop watershed management plans that include the best management practices (BMPs) and action plans for meeting reduction goals.


Watershed Monitoring and Implementation

As the lead firm, R2T has collected stream inventory data to document the conditions of the stream segments within the watersheds in the City of Sandy Springs. The data collected was customized using GIS Integrated with GPS to record inventory. The field teams assessed each specific problem or observation for several information categories and documented stream conditions. All data collected was linked in the final GIS based field database.

Wetland Delineation / Permitting

R2T provided environmental services to delineate waters of the States within project limits. R2T provided flagging of streams and wetlands for the identification of the limits in compliance with Section 404 of the Clean Water Authority. We completed wetland data forms, developed appropriate maps (GIS), figures, and photo logs for use of Nationwide Permit 12-Utility Line. R2T’s relationship with the regulatory agency led to receiving timely USACE approval.

Chattahoochee Streambank Stabilization

R2T conducted a stream geomorphic survey to gain insight into the processes altering stream conditions. R2T obtained Vertical measurements to indicate critical data points and various water depths, while horizontal measurements were captured to indicate information such as the edge of bank, water, and sandbar.

Roswell Bacteria Source Tracking

R2T is provided assistance for the water quality monitoring of streams and stormwater as a part of City of Roswell’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit regulated by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD). One of the major tasks of this project was Bacteria Source Tracking where E.coli monitoring was performed on Hog Waller Creek and Big Creek to identify the percentage of bacteria contributed by human sources.

MS4 and Watershed Protection Implementation / Reporting

R2T provided environmental services to assist Fulton County with the implementation of their Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) and Watershed Protection Plan (WPP). Services included water quality monitoring of County streams and stormwater structures to fulfill requirements of Fulton County’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit. In addition, R2T assisted the County with complying with their WPP developed to fulfill the requirements of their NPDES discharge permits. Specific tasks included sampling quality and assurance plan, water quality monitoring-bacteria/chemical monitoring, illicit discharge detection, watershed improvement plan development, Annual Reporting, Plan Updates and Monitoring and Implementation Plan Development, and County stream assessments.

Areas of Expertise

Water Resources Planning

Our staff is experienced in permitting and planning various types of projects. We provide assistance on projects to meet the requirements of the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act.
