We protect and restore watersheds.

SMC is an industry leader that protects and restores the Chesapeake Bay watershed through practical design, construction, and maintenance of water quality infrastructure.  Every project mitigates human impacts on natural systems.



The foundation of our engineering practice was established 30 years ago with an intense fascination of applying the technical aspects of water resources engineering to practical applications in stormwater and stream restoration.

SMC-Stormwater Inspections-Written Form


For over 15 years, the SMC team has established a significant  post-construction stormwater inspection practice. Our inspection teams are responsible for the ongoing inspection of thousands of facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic.  



The ultimate purpose of engineering is to build stuff. So it’s no surprise that, after many years of water resources engineering, we brought together a talented team of construction professionals to build it.



SMC Surveys provides a wide range of surveying services throughout Maryland for land owners, SMC projects, and on design and construction teams as a certified DBE/WBE.  


Pond & BMP Maintenance

Stormwater Maintenance was our original name! We were one of the first in the stormwater industry to identify the importance of operations and maintenance and to assist clients in implementing cost effective maintenance solutions.


Underground Maintenance

Working with underground stormwater facilities and infrastructure is at the core of what we do.  With specialized experience, equipment and personnel, we know what it takes to inspect, clean, and repair all types of underground structures and pipelines.

SMC is a Women Owned Business Enterprises (DBE/WBE) in numerous municipalities.  We welcome the opportunity to be a subconsultant or subcontractor on projects with DBE requirements.

…We couldn’t be happier with the result of the stream restoration and permeable, wheelchair-accessible trail construction at Woodend Nature Sanctuary. SMC was a wonderful partner in the realization of our dreams for the property. The project manager and superintendent from SMC always prioritized the smooth operation of our education programs, as well as property rentals during this complex project. Together, they also devised creative and practical “field engineering” solutions to challenges that were not addressed in the paper plans. The SMC team was very organized about invoicing, materials clearance, permit inspections, and a hundred other administrative details for a project with county, state and federal funding requirements.

We were very pleased with the survey [John] and Joe did this morning.  Both were professional, pleasant and efficiently did exactly what we wanted done.  They skillfully handled the wrinkle encountered. We will be pleased to recommend SMC to anyone else who requires surveying or storm water management work.

I was just telling our residents what a pleasure it was to work with such a
credible entity!!! You made the project ‘painless’ for us!!
