The Firm

Gregory L. Morris Engineering seeks to enhance the utilization and management resources and infrastructure through better understanding of natural systems and its relation to engineering design.The firm offers multi-disciplinary scientific and engineering expertise to provide clients with economical and workable solutions to resource development and engineering issues. Project experience includes hundreds of studies including hydrologic and hydraulic analysis, water resources, environmental studies and permitting work, civil design, and services during construction.

Environmental Studies and Permits

The firm possesses ample experience in addressing sensitive environmental issues and has successfully helped achieve compliance of very challenging and complex projects while focusing on sustainable solutions to engineering problems and resource management strategies. We pride ourselves in providing clients with accurate and responsible guidance through both the local and federal regulatory processes.

Hydrologic-Hydraulic Engineering

The firm is a recognized leader in the Water Resources field. It leads the profession in the development and implementation of innovative technology in Puerto Rico, and its expertise in fluvial sedimentation is recognized internationally. Analysis tools include steady and unsteady, 1- and 2-dimensional flow models for both water and sediment transport.

Reservoirs & Sedimentation Engineering

The principal objective of sediment management is to design new facilities to minimize long-term sedimentation problems, or to enable existing facilities to manage the sediment problems ignored by their original designers, so they may continue in operation. The firm has designed several new reservoirs in Puerto Rico with sedimentation rates 90 percent lower than in conventional reservoirs.

Water Resources Engineering

Our firm has demonstrated its leadership position in the field of water resources firm by developing and implementing innovative projects which have greatly advanced the profession in Puerto Rico.For both public and private sector clients we have performed ground water studies ranging from well permitting to the development of ground water models, and we have identified available ground water resources in regions that were overlooked by other consultants.

Civil Design and Services During Construction

Our Civil Design Department focuses on providing sustainable engineering solutions and implementing low-impact development strategies for projects at all levels and complexities. Our team of engineers pride themselves in providing the client with design alternatives and recommendations that are economically feasible, but at the same time environmentally and socially responsible.
