Using our civil engineering expertise- focused in stormwater management, land development, sustainability- and a “coralized” approach, Blue Ocean is committed to delivering successful projects and creative solutions. We continually strive to do development and civil engineering better and help conserve our healthy blue oceans.

Stormwater Management

Our stormwater program provides clients with flood control and water quality support to leverage rainfall into beneficial uses to reduce pollutant discharge to water bodies while also minimizing flood risk. This includes hydrology and hydraulics studies, facility design, and stormwater quality program development and implementation.

MS4PermitConstruction & Industrial Stormwater Permit Compliance

Our clients appreciate our ability to provide thoughtful, streamlined, and cost-effective solutions to meet water quality and stormwater requirements. We also bring significant value to project owners during the construction phase by providing knowledgeable and practical sediment and erosion control guidance that reduces owner risk of Regional Board enforcement action.

 Flood Plain Mapping & Mitigation

Geographical Information System (GIS) integration provides support for our floodplain and water-related engineering services. In addition, Blue Ocean provides GIS consulting services that include needs assessment, database creation and management, interactive online map development, and custom application development.

Watershed & Stormwater Management

Comprehensive hydrologic and hydraulic technical experience is the solid foundation for Blue Ocean’s watershed and stormwater management services that utilize advanced hydrology and hydraulic modeling programs such as HEC-1, HEC-HMS, WMS, HEC-RAS, XPSWMM, and GeoRAS.

Civil Engineering & Land Development

Our land development design services include grading, utility and street improvement plan production for commercial, industrial and residential projects. We also provide GIS database and map creation, maintenance consulting and development services.
