Flood Warning & Emergency Action Planning

The ability to detect and evaluate an impending flooding threat can be extremely valuable in providing a time response that can save lives and prevent property damage. HELM engineers have the expertise to develop a detailed assessment of flood threats, design an array of flood warning measures and develop a comprehensive flood emergency action plan (EAP) for local agencies.

HELM will develop a full understanding of the watershed characteristics and associated flooding. HELM can develop sophisticated two-dimensional H&H model of the contributing watershed and utilize all available gage data to validate the modeling. HELM will then develop a comprehensive emergency action plan which can then be used by agencies to coordinate flood response.
