A WBE and DBE Engineering Firm Serving Northern New England Since 1994

Engineering and Scientific Hydrology

Understanding the flow of water through a hydrologic system is the foundation of any subsequent engineering effort.  Since 1994, Northstar Hydro Inc. has been modeling hydrologic systems throughout New England.  Engineers are well versed in modeling techniques ranging in application from small micro-basins to regional river systems and understand the unique physical characteristics of the New England region.  We use the latest in GIS technology to augment our understanding of localized hydrologic processes.

Example project areas include:

  • Design flows for transportation infrastructure
  • Calibrated hydrologic models of basin systems for dam rehabilitation or removal
  • Multi-state regional models for land use and climate change research
  • Assisting property owners in understanding the flow of water through their property
  • Studies related to flooding and flood impacts
  • Hydrologic Budgets including Drought Conditions
  • Hydrogeologic Issues: Water Supply Development, Quarry Operations
