Aquatic ecosystems provide a myriad of functions including water quality improvement, stormwater abatement, homes for biota, protection from flooding, and recreational opportunities. Despite these benefits, streams, lakes, and wetlands are polluted and even destroyed because of expanding human development. To solve environmental challenges in these systems a holistic watershed-based approach is needed.
At OWSI we bring together transdisciplinary teams of engineers, ecologists, social scientists, and local stakeholders to provide solutions which work in harmony with the existing ecosystem processes.
