One of Anchor QEA’s key areas of expertise is water quality management, including stormwater and industrial wastewater permit and infrastructure planning, evaluation, design, and implementation. Our engineers, scientists, and permitting professionals have an in-depth understanding of the Clean Water Act regulatory framework, including National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program elements and water quality standards under various NPDES permits throughout the United States. Anchor QEA combines in-depth regulatory understanding with technical expertise to plan, design, and permit improvements that manage stormwater and industrial wastewater effectively and efficiently while protecting receiving waterbodies. As experts in hydraulic, hydrologic, and fate and transport modeling, we have provided our clients with innovative and strategic approaches to addressing water management issues. We have also successfully negotiated with regulatory agencies to achieve technically defensible and cost-effective solutions.
