Cypress professionals provide a range of engineering and scientific services to conquer challenges in water resources engineering. Cypress conducts projects in all aspects of water resources including water quality, watershed and stormwater management, hydrologic/hydraulic modeling, and drinking water and wastewater modeling, calculations, and design.

Cypress’s engineering team works to plan, model, and design a variety of water resources projects employing a multi-discipline approach. We keep complex projects on schedule and within budget while ensuring local and client design and aesthetic requirements are met.

Sticking close to our roots, Cypress works to ensure that water resources projects are designed to integrate seamlessly into the natural environment. We understand the balance between the built and natural environment and work to minimize the impacts to nature while mitigating risk to life and property.

Coastal Engineering

Cypress engineers, scientists, and planners are skilled in a variety of coastal science and engineering fields. We take a holistic approach when planning, designing, and constructing projects that meet our client’s needs. As a company with strong ties to the coast, we understand the importance of preserving, restoring, protecting, and enhancing our coastal areas for all who live, work, play, and do business there.
