    Scope of Work
Our area of interest is a small community located 40km on the Jerez highway from Zacatecas.  It is on the banks of a river that periodically floods due to rain in the nearby mountains.  Flood waters can be as deep as 2.5 meters.  In order to model the existing flow regimes we propose a WMS model for the watershed combined with an HEC-RAS model for the river channel.  With a working calibrated model we can then incorporate different flood mitigation measures into the model and choose the best solution.  Ultimately we will propose our findings in hopes that the community can implement a solution to the current flooding problems.
