Aberdeen Sea Level Rise Study

Fain Environmental conducted hydrologic and hydraulic analysis and Fain Environmental conducted hydrologic and hydraulic analysis and modeling for the Aberdeen Sea Level Rise Study. We analyzed existing FEMA floodplain mapping. We modified an existing Hydrologic Engineering Center-River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) model of the Chehalis River to calculate 19 different sea-level rise and flow scenarios. Fain Environmental assisted in preparation for public meetings to discuss the implications of the modeling results.
