Watershed Studies

Anderson’s  approach to watershed investigations combines the strong technical capabilities necessary to evaluate the existing problems within a watershed and strong communication skills with a “common sense attitude” toward providing the most cost effective solutions to the client. ACE possesses the expertise and experience to successfully accomplish these truly multi-disciplinary investigations.  Our previous experience with both the technical and public consensus aspects of watershed investigations provides us a unique insight to assess the existing watershed conditions, evaluate the various objectives of the project sponsor/landowners, and to arrive at solutions which are not only technically sound, but economically feasible and acceptable.

ACE utilizes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to not only analyze the complex relationships within a watershed, but also to present the resulting information in a clear and concise manner in order to promote public understanding.  Watershed investigations involve a combination of stakeholder interviews, GIS data collection, and field investigations to develop an accurate picture of the issues in each watershed.  Topics of investigation can include:

  • Land use and management
  • Vegetation analysis
  • Wildlife
  • Geology and Soils
  • Hydrology
  • Stream channel conditions
  • Grazing activities and management
  • Range conditions
  • Irrigation
  • Climate
  • Cultural Sites
  • Energy development
