Hydrology and Hydraulics
Water is part of everything we do. It is vital that we understand how water collects and flows now and after a development to create a society that thrives with water. That’s why our team of engineers approach every water and natural resource project with extreme care. We pride ourselves on having designed and built projects that provide communities with multiple benefits, including flood risk reduction, improved aesthetics, recreational spaces, and increased potential for economic revitalization.
Our work with hydrology and hydraulics is reflected across the Southeast. CSRS is currently involved in several projects, including Stormwater and Floodplain Management Plans for Ascension, East Baton Rouge, Calcasieu and Lafayette Parishes, BREC parks and the Louisiana State University Lakes. Moving further south, our work in Terrebonne Parish with the Isle de Jean Charles community resettlement project demonstrates our experience using nature-based solutions for flood risk reduction.
CSRS utilizes the best information and tools available to study, model, and design projects involving hydrology and hydraulics.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“CSRS has displayed professionalism and dedication. They were easy to contact and ready to work with us when workloads dictated a change in staffing or support levels. The individuals assigned to us always appeared knowledgable and genuinely engaged on behalf of the program.”

Stokka Brown, MS, PE, CFM
Mr. Brown is a Louisiana Licensed Professional Engineer and Certified Floodplain Manager with eleven years of experience in water resources and coastal engineering, including numerical modeling and analysis of estuarine, coastal, and stormwater systems. He has developed hydrologic and hydraulic models, and numerically analyzed natural and man-made drainage systems.
Mr. Brown develops and utilizes 2D hydraulic models to understand the complex nature of drainage systems, identify problems and develop effective solutions through his understanding of hydraulics and hydrology and the impact of alterations to the natural system. His models aid in the development of projects and benefit cost analyses in support of applications for grant funding. With the 2D model output and use of GIS systems, Mr. Brown effectively communicates the complexities of a drainage system in a simple manner.
