DAVID FORD CONSULTING ENGINEERS INC
As part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer-Mississippi River and Tributaries program for the Red River of the North Basin, MN, ND, SD, & Manitoba Canada. Funds will be used for a contract to collect airborne laser mapping light detection and ranging data and develop a digital elevation model. The model will be used to plan water resource projects, including flood risk management and ecosystem restoration projects and local development decisions. This action is for steady and unsteady model development for Red River of the North. This project is for HEC-RAS steady and unsteady model development for the Red River of the North (RRN) from the Canadian border to Halstad, MN. Scope tasks include review of the existing HEC-RAS steady models, consolidation to one model, cross section expansion and refinement, and calibration to the flood of record. Both steady flow HEC-RAS and unsteady flow HEC-RAS models will be completed. The completed unsteady flow model is intended to be used by the National Weather Service (NWS) North Central River Forecast Center. A brief report should also be prepared to discuss model construction and simulation results.
