NTM Engineering quantified the Functional Credit Gain (FCG) associated with project study areas using Pennsylvania’s Function-Based Aquatic Resource Compensation Protocol (Compensation Protocol) for the Cathedral Run and Wises Mill Run stormwater management projects and the Wises Mill Run and Gorgas Run stream restoration projects, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. NTM created GIS-based stream assessment reach (SAR) and […]
For the Germantown Flood Relief Capital Improvement Project, NTM assisted in the data collection and reviewed data of previous studies including the AIM1 Report. NTM provided insights on integration of the existing system and alternatives with the upstream/adjacent watershed, utilizing knowledge from experience and modeling with the Act 167 stormwater management plan. NTM Engineering evaluated the existing EPS Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) for input data accuracy, including […]
Under a Natural Stream Channel and Wetland Design, Assessment, & Monitoring contract for the Philadelphia Water Department, NTM Engineering was part of the GTS Technologies team that assessed streams within the Poquessing Creek Watershed. The resulting report described the watershed with its land use, geology, and soil characteristics and geographic information systems (GIS) maps detailing […]
Michael Baker Jr., Inc. added NTM to its GCE Services contract for the PTC to provide drainage and stormwater review services as part of a Conditions Assessment project. Every three years, the PTC performs a physical system assessment of the Turnpike’s roadways, bridges, buildings, etc. NTM evaluated the PTC’s drainage and stormwater facilities. Under the […]
To develop the Wissahickon Creek Act 167 Plan, NTM Engineering collaborated with Temple University’s Center for Sustainable Communities on the project. The Plan’s goal was a comprehensive stormwater management plan for this urban watershed, which experienced flash flooding and water quality problems.
NTM Engineering was part of an AKRF team restoring and enhancing Reaches 4 and 5 of the Tacony Creek Park’s ecosystem. As part of its restoration and green initiatives, the Philadelphia Water Department intends to restore the Tacony Creek stream corridor, which extends from Cheltenham Avenue on the upstream extent down to Castor Avenue on […]
