Freshwater ecosystems—rivers, streams, lakes, estuaries, and wetlands—provide invaluable ecological, recreational, and social benefits, and are crucial for many threatened and endangered species. Often facing competing demands for water and land use, protection and restoration of these systems are increasingly important.

NHC applies a deep understanding of physical processes in hydrology, hydraulics, and geomorphology to protect and restore natural function to these ecosystems. NHC specialists integrate our understanding and technical knowledge, utilize local knowledge and information, and develop applied comprehensive solutions. NHC provides a full range of design services, from conceptual plans to design-build services, on a wide scale of projects utilizing valued partners providing services in biological, geotechnical, and civil engineering.
