Award Description: The objectives for the accelerated CWMS deployment campaign are as follows: 1. To enhance the capability of the Corps of Engineers offices nationwide to make well-informed decisions for managing reservoirs and water control systems. This will be achieved by expanding, at an accelerated pace, the availability of advanced information technology resources for hydrometeorological data management, display, and dissemination; watershed runoff forecasting; flood stage prediction; reservoir operation analysis; and flood impact analysis. 2. To create and maintain jobs for US citizens, in keeping with the goal of the ARRA. This will be achieved by using HEC’s BPA contractors to undertake the work and manage its successful completion. Those contractors, in turn, may use local consulting resources if appropriate and useful to the project. The intended deliverable of the overall project is, for a selected watershed in each division of the Corps of Engineers, a fully functional decision support system that will enhance water management. The target decision support system is CWMS, including HEC-HMS, HEC-RAS, HEC-ResSim, and HEC-FIA. For each watershed, software will be installed as needed and configured by a contractor, with cooperation of HEC and Division or District staff. Contractors will configure and calibrate the models, using data and information collected from District and Division staff. Contractors will test the software under simulated real-time high flow conditions, demonstrating the deployment under a stress test. Contractors will document actions taken to deploy the decision support system. Finally, contractors will transfer the technology to Corps staff in the appropriate District or Division offices. This task order is to deploy CWMS at the Galveston District for the Buffalo Bayou.
Project Description: Began work to develop a hydrologic engineering management plan (HEMP). The HEMP will identify and describe procedures to use to complete the technical activities called for in this task order. The HEMP includes a schedule for completion of the tasks, identify all requirements of the government for the Buffalo Bayou deployment, and a quality control plan.
Jobs Summary: Added junior hydrologic engineer to assist senior staff with deploymen tof CWMS at the Galveston District. (Total jobs reported: 1)
