Flood Control

Stanley Consultants has extensive experience in planning, engineering, management, and related services for flood control.

It can happen in just a moment.  A picturesque meandering stream can transform into a raging torrent, a wall of destruction powerful enough to destroy everything in its path.  Flood waters leave a trail of destruction and can cause billions in damage. 

After Hurricane Katrina, the USACE created Task Force Guardian with the goal of restoring hurricane protection to New Orleans before the start of the next hurricane season.  Stanley Consultants provided program management for this significant effort.

Whether you need large scale program management or a small feasibility study, Stanley Consultants has the experience and expertise to provide your flood protection needs.
