Rainwater Recovery Inc. was the brainchild of Philip C. Reidy, a geotechnical engineer with substantial consulting experience, who early on recognized the need to transition stormwater management thinking from a "concrete and culvert" approach to one that mimicked natural processes. Mr. Reidy founded Rainwater Recovery in 2004 to bring his approach to the marketplace by focusing on rainwater harvesting systems: a low impact development (LID) approach designed to optimize the collection and reuse of stormwater as a substitute for purchased or pumped water. The marketplace readily embraced the Rainwater Recovery approach, and today the firm is responsible for the design and installation of more than 100 systems that not only achieve the substitution objective but also avoid the discharge of millions of gallons of runoff to municipal stormwater/combined sewer (CS) systems.

In March 2010, Geosyntec Consultants acquired Rainwater Recovery to expand the firm's service offerings in stormwater management. Mr. Reidy joins Geosyntec's team of senior specialists in water resources management nationwide who are committed to the application of LID design principles as a superior approach to the "concrete and culvert" philosophy in protecting the nation's water resources from the impacts of stormwater flows. Mr. Reidy's particular expertise in rainwater harvesting and his experience in system design and operation offers Geosyntec's clients a new tool in meeting increasingly stringent stormwater management requirements. He also expands Geosyntec's service offerings to municipalities and regional stormwater management agencies charged with achieving flow and contaminant discharge permit compliance requirements for CSO systems.

Going forward, Rainwater Recovery will become an integral part of the Geosyntec family of specialty practices that are top tier consulting service providers in their respective fields. Operating under the Geosyntec Consultants banner, former Rainwater Recovery clients will now have access to the full suite of Geosyntec service offerings.
