In order to connect passengers between Dallas and Houston in 90 minutes, the proposed Texas Central High-Speed Rail must cross the Trinity River and numerous other streams, drainage ways and floodplains.

Freese and Nichols played a key role in developing the first privately developed high-speed train project in North America. To examine alignment alternatives for the high-speed train, nearly 900 drainage crossings with a combined drainage area of 7,000 square miles were...

The City of Wichita Falls developed emergency evacuation plans for Memorial Day rains, with the help of Freese and Nichols. The weather service was projecting a potential flood of record for the Wichita River.

Within a matter of hours, we developed flood maps that they could use for emergency management operations, sending GIS files for floodplain delineations of a variety of flood stages corresponding to the potential flood stages. The City pulled the maps...

Congratulations to Robert Thompson on receiving his Master of Science in Geospatial Information Sciences (GIS) from the University of Texas at Dallas. Robert is a GIS Analyst for the Stormwater Engineering group in the Freese and Nichols Dallas Office. Robert's master's project was a spatio-temporal analysis of a simulated levee breach. He approximated how long it would take to flood the area behind the breach and analyzed the hazard impact using GIS-based methods. He also...
