RMC has been at the forefront of developing ecologically sound and forward-thinking watershed approaches to flood protection that improve water quality and reduce flooding.
RMC is providing project management and design services for a flood protection improvement project along 13.6 miles of Upper Llagas Creek. The project involves complete engineering design of channel improvements, including concrete walls, levees, culverts, and floodwalls. RMC is leading a team of 12 subconsultants to develop a design that:
For the Upper Petaluma River Watershed Flood Control Project, RMC completed a scoping study to develop stormwater management or groundwater recharge projects that provide flood hazard reduction and groundwater benefits within the Upper Petaluma River Watershed. This initial phase of work included:
RMC planned and designed the Legacy Park project—a multi-benefit clean water project that improves water quality and protects and restores natural resources. RMC:

RMC helps achieve sustainable storm water management through low impact design (LID) approaches that can help mitigate the effects of urbanization on stormwater. We completed two LID projects for San Francisco where we:
RMC performed hydraulic modeling and developed design drawings to improve the conveyance capacity of West Antioch Creek. RMC designed capacity improvements to relieve an undersized culvert and creek channel subject to significant and frequent flooding that significantly impacts nearby residences and businesses. The project also included removing sediment from the downstream portion of the creek. RMC was responsible for developing the design drawings and specifications, obtaining permits, and coordinating with the City’s CEQA consultant.
