As climate change becomes a reality, designing sustainable and resilient infrastructure and development projects has become more critical for safeguarding our communities. For almost two decades, Nitsch Engineering has been a leader in sustainable stormwater management.

By integrating stormwater with building and landscape systems, we design comprehensive sustainable solutions to promote the filtration, retention, evaporation, infiltration, and reuse of rainwater.

Forward Thinking

An early proponent of smart growth and sustainable urban design, Nitsch Engineering has been providing sustainable site and Green Infrastructure design up and down the East Coast. We have developed a reputation for innovative thinking and design solutions and have particular expertise in Green Infrastructure, stormwater master planning, and sustainable stormwater management.

Nitsch Engineering incorporates sustainable stormwater Best Management Practices into our planning and design projects, including pervious pavement, green roofs, bioretention, infiltration, and rainwater harvesting strategies to produce environmentally sensitive stormwater solutions. These sustainable design concepts can be applied to a wide range of site development and infrastructure projects, from private development to streetscape improvements to regional planning.


From planning to design and construction, our Green Infrastructure experience includes the evaluation and identification of alternatives for specific sites or watersheds, including: Peabody Square in Boston, MA; Yale University’s Science Hill Master Plan (and subsequent building projects) in New Haven, CT; Sassaquin Pond Watershed Restoration Study in New Bedford, MA; Frick Environmental Center in Pittsburgh, PA; the Stadium District Green Infrastructure Plan in Philadelphia, PA; and Kennedy Street in Washington, D.C.
