WWE’s experience with urban drainage dates back to the founding of the company in 1961. WWE’s founder, Kenneth Wright, P.E., oversaw preparation of the original Urban Storm Drainage Criteria Manual for the Denver Metro area in 1969. WWE has been involved in advising the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District (UDFCD) and assisting with updates to the manual ever since. WWE has used this knowledge of sound urban drainage principles to develop drainage and water quality criteria for many municipalities in Colorado and across the U.S. The urban drainage principles and practices that were established in the Urban Storm Drainage Criteria Manual remain largely unchanged today and are a testament to the sound drainage engineering approach that WWE has followed for over 50 years.
