Overview:

2NDNATURE was initiated as an environmental science consulting firm assisting local, state and federal agencies on how to use data to objectively quantify and track the environmental value of public investments on waterways. Over the last decade our approach has evolved from intense data collection and analysis over a short period of time at a specific location, to spatially scalable cost effective solutions that leverage existing or generate new data sets that provide consistent and meaningful environmental ROI results. Our standardized monitoring and modelling approaches are now fully functional in the 2NFORM Stormwater Suite purposed built for local public works departments to manage stormwater assets, make better decisions and cut annual regulatory compliance with MS4 NDPES permit costs by potentially an order of magnitude. Since launch in Jan 2017, 28 Central Coast of CA MS4 programs and the Regional Water Quality Control Board are collaborating on defining the full system build out and compliance details. Our services model will continue to allow a contracting mechanism to collaborate with agency and regulator partners on software solution expansion and refinement, support agencies on advances planning applications using our solutions and other aligned consulting services.
