Our estuaries are some of the most productive and abundant natural environments on earth. Throughout human history, our estuaries have provided a source of food, commerce and shelter. New milestones in human population growth and trends in coastal urbanization are putting increasing pressure on the sustainability of our estuaries.

At ORA Engineering, LLC we believe that our estuaries can and must remain sustainable resources. Our mission is to build and maintain the ecological infrastructure that allows our estuaries to remain abundant and productive in conjunction with ever increasing human presence.
