Floodplain Permitting

CDG provides superior floodplain permitting assistance services for a variety of clients, from private sector entities interested in building in a floodplain to governmental agencies embarking on floodplain infrastructure or civil engineering projects. Our team of engineers, project managers and consultants possess extensive knowledge of the floodplain permitting process, and we are able to help coordinate your project with the floodplain administrator and FEMA to identify possible issues. We also understand that for many projects, permits are required from a variety of different entities, including levee districts as well as municipal, county, state and federal governments, and these regulatory bodies are sometimes in contradiction with one another. The knowledgeable experts at CDG will help you navigate the process, ensure you’re in compliance and work as your advocate so your project stays on time and on budget.

Our floodplain-related services include:

  • Interpretation and delineation of floodplain boundaries
  • Applications for permitting of construction activities when building in a floodplain
  • Permit applications for flood control measures such as levees and floodwalls
  • Hydraulic modeling to develop effective engineering designs and conduct applied hydraulic analysis

We base our recommendations on years of practical knowledge, advanced research and field work, and we can help you understand and analyze even the most complex hydrologic and hydraulic conditions in the floodplain and beyond. Our team is skilled at planning, permitting and developing solutions that will help ensure project success from start to finish. If you happen to be starting a new project that requires retroactive permitting, we can help streamline the process and work with regulators to mitigate potentially costly fees and/or fines. We believe in an interactive and collaborative approach, and we encourage our clients to actively participate in the process.

At CDG, we are more than just technical experts. We pride ourselves on effective communication and customer service that is second to none, and we understand that our job isn’t complete until our customers are happy. If you have a floodplain project that requires permitting or hydraulic modeling and analysis, contact CDG today to learn more about how we can help!
