Floodplain Delineations

100-year floodplain delineation at Carlsbad, New Mexico: 

HEC-2 modeling was used to delineate the 100-year floodplain for a new subdivision in Carlsbad, New Mexico to meets the requirements to maintain a development buffer outside the area of inundation.


100-year floodplain delineation for the San Luis Gold Mine:

A watershed characterization was developed on Rito Seco so that 100-year floodplain limits could be delineated for the mining project to evaluate placement a mine facilities. The results of this analysis were utilized in the mine permitting process to demonstrate that all mine facilities would be outside the 100-year floodplain.
