Flood management planning and design of flood control facilities has evolved in recent years. Today, management of floods include planning and construction of facilities such as dams and detention facilities, coordinated operations of the reservoirs with flood control reservations, improvement of flood channels and levees, watershed management and proper land use planning.
GEI offers a team of specialists with expertise in surface and subsurface drainage, as well as in flood hydrology and flood control facilities. Our team applies advanced hydrologic and hydraulic models that take into account historic rainfall and runoff events, maximum probable event predictions, and multiple reservoir operational considerations. These considerations not only include flood control but recreation, power generation, endangered species, water supply, and wild and scenic river issues. We provide our clients with solutions that integrate yesterday’s history with today’s technology.
