Firm professionals have developed a common-sense approach that provides dam owners cost-effective solutions for maintaining and rehabilitating their dams. D&K’s dam engineers are supported by in-house surveyors, wetland scientists, and permitting specialists that contribute to providing dam owners a full complement of dam and related services.
