November Event - Modeling and Mapping Flood Risk

Modeling and Mapping Flood Risk | Rachel Mares

Flood risk affects our lives whether we live in a high desert, prairie, or rainy coastline. Understanding where flood risk exists and how high that risk is helps communities to mitigate loss of life and property. This presentation will be an overview of how flood risk is modeled and mapped on watershed and county-wide scales using 2D modeling methods.

Rachel manages the Water Resources service line in the Salt Lake City office at Wood Environment & Infrastructure. She has 6 years of professional engineering experience in the areas of watershed and urban stormwater hydrology and hydraulics (H&H), statistical frequency analyses, and geographical information systems (GIS). When not going cross-eyed looking at 2D model meshes, Rachel enjoys taking in the beautiful Utah landscapes on skis, a bike, or trail running shoes.

Date: Nov. 23rd, 12:00pm-1:00pm
