South Fargo Floodplain Modeling with HEC-RAS
May 3 @ 2:30 – 3:00pm
Presented by Adam Nies, PE, and Greg Thompson, PE


Learn about the latest and greatest HEC-RAS 2D modeling techniques used in HEI's South Fargo Floodplain Modeling project. This technique was used to represent overland flow characteristics through urban areas, accounting for the interaction of buildings in a developed floodplain. This presentation will focus on the accurate representation of urban floodplain modeling. 

Fun Fact: This same presentation was given at the 2016 Minnesota Association of Floodplain Managers conference and the audience voted Adam and Greg among the top speakers!
