About this business
It all started when, in 2014, about a year after the Colorado floods, Katie Jagt was searching for a way to lead local disaster recovery efforts without the barriers and conflicted interests that came with working for a large consulting firm.
WATERSHED SCIENCE AND DESIGN WAS BORN FROM HER DESIRE TO STAY TRUE TO RIVER SCIENCE AND PARTICIPATE IN THE DISASTER RECOVERY IN HER OWN COMMUNITY.
Katie built Watershed Science and Design (WSD) with a deep comprehension of river science, geomorphology, engineering, and hydrology. WSD provides subject matter experts and offers reviews, solutions, and discussions that are informed by the latest research in the fields related to watershed management and river design.
WSD understands how human actions and interventions can influence a river system—and vice versa. We have been immersed in helping our clients navigate the inter-connectedness and inter-dependencies of the physical and social landscape within watersheds and river systems.
