High Water Mark provides emergency management, hazard mitigation and environment and water resources consulting services to communities in New Mexico and the Southwest. As a company, we began with burn area recovery and post-fire flood damage assessment and recovery in fire-impacted watersheds. Working with local communities and their stakeholders impacted by floods, High Water Mark, embarked on a community-based planning endeavor to address the most immediate health and safety needs of our clients’ communities for flood hazard mitigation and infrastructure recovery, while looking ahead to long-term environment and water resources needs in the greater watershed and Southwest region. This work continues today, and includes multi-stakeholder initiatives among numerous local, state, federal and tribal entities with unique roles and responsibilities in emergency response to man-made and natural disasters, hazard mitigation and the management of cultural and natural resources.
From our initial projects working across jurisdictional boundaries for successful post-fire flood hazard mitigation and damage recovery, we have expanded our services to include design, planning and management of tribal infrastructure projects; environmental compliance; implementation of early flood warning systems; facilitating the multi-hazard mitigation planning process in local communities; to working on a national level to effect policy initiatives with federal resources agencies and their management of public and trust lands.
