Converse provides a range of professional services in the field of sustainable development. Converse can assist our clients in achieving the goals of sustainable development through water quality monitoring, brownfield redevelopment and low impact development (LID).
Low Impact Development, or LID, is a design strategy using naturalistic, on-site Best Management Practices to lessen the impacts of development on stormwater quality and quantity. The goal of LID is to mimic the undeveloped runoff conditions of the development site with the post-development conditions.
Converse can assist you in developing comprehensive stormwater solutions with the objective of improving water quality and mitigating potential water quality impacts from stormwater and non-stormwater discharges of your development project. Design services include consultation, selection of alternative features, permitting, plans and specifications and implementation oversight.
