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 up on the screen at the emergency operations center and went to work making their emergency evacuation plans.

Kilgore Storm Sewer Master PlanThe City of Kilgore was facing flooding and other issues in the downtown area related to aging storm sewer infrastructure. In addition, staff members who had recently joined the team were not as familiar with the existing infrastructure and wanted to gain more insight into what was in place. To address these issues, the City turned to Freese and Nichols to create a Downtown...

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 created a 3-D simulation of the flooding to visually illustrate the incremental flooding and times associated with...

Lack of Preparation Contributes to Effects
When municipalities are unprepared, large storm events often overwhelm them with the need to clean up debris, conduct inspections, perform repairs, respond to questions, and verify substantial damage determination regulation requirements are met. Nothing can immunize a community from flooding, but implementing key practices before, during and after large storm events can minimize effects on your community and help prevent severe damage and repeat flooding. (Brief checklists for practices before, during and after a large storm...
