Brett Jordan, PhD, PE

We are a private consulting firm specializing in watershed analysis, stream restoration, fluvial geomorphology, hydrology, hydraulic engineering, storm water management and erosion control projects. Our focus is superior customer service and innovative cost effective project solutions that represent state of the art science to ensure project success. We are committed to addressing each project using a scientific approach to understand the baseline conditions, natural processes and project constraints. The high quality baseline data collected serves as a foundation for thorough problem understanding, project alternative analysis and recommended solutions.

Our Principal Hydraulic Engineer Brett Jordan PhD, PE has 10 years of experience in hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, open channel hydraulics, storm water management, erosion control, sediment transport and stream restoration design in the academic and private consulting sectors. He has worked on over 30 different river systems ranging from steep mountain headwater streams to low gradient sand bed streams and coastal marshlands in the Pacific Northwest, Inter-Mountain West, Southeast and Gulf Coast regions. These projects have ranged from watershed scale analysis of sediment and nutrient transport, reach scale stream and coastal marshland restoration designs and site specific analysis of hydraulic structures.

Brett has also has taught graduate level courses in the Civil Engineering Department at Colorado State University and short courses to government agencies focusing on field data collection and analysis of river systems. The courses emphasize quantitative measurement of river attributes necessary for understanding natural channel geomorphic processes. Topics include bed material measurement, longitudinal, cross-section and planform surveys, bankfull stage identification, water and sediment discharge measurement, channel roughness estimation and channel classification systems including those proposed by (Rosgen, Montgomery and Buffington and Schumm). In addition to teaching the field data analysis techniques, he has implemented identical techniques on successful stream and river projects in the Inter-Mountain West, the Pacific Northwest, and California.
