River Restoration / Flood Resiliency

THK Associates’ approach to river restoration and flood resiliency projects is based on the philosophical goal of establishing sustainable drainage-ways that are self-maintaining, cost effective and provide healthy benefits to the surrounding ecosystems.  Our team is currently responsible for the design of numerous sustainable parks with healthier floodplains by de-channelizing rivers and re-shaping the landforms to increase flood volumes. In doing so, we satisfy the objective to protect expensive infrastructure while establishing healthy riparian areas with trails and environmental play areas that become highly valued natural resources for the community.
