WRCS Capabilities in Water Resources Engineering
WRCS specializes in the analysis of water resources projects involving the hydraulic design of stormwater drainage, conveyance and detention facilities and studies of surface water hydrology and hydraulics, meteorology, sediment and debris production, and pipe system hydraulics. Our expertise covers the design, operation and maintenance of: dams and reservoirs, highway drainage systems, storm drains, natural and man-made channels, levees and embankments. We also have extensive experience in statistical analysis and hydrographic data management, water resources project alternative plan development, benefit/cost analysis and forensic flood re-creation under alternative scenarios.
Comparison of Flood Profiles Under Alternative Reservoir Operation Scenarios
Mr. Van Bruggen has experience as an expert witness in cases
ranging from the Standard of Care for the design of storm drain
systems and operation of reservoir systems, to the forensic
re-creation of storm and flood events, to the hydraulic factors
leading to a wrongful death by drowning. He has performed hydraulic
environmental impact analyses, redefined floodplains and developed
storm drain master plans. If the project concerns surface water
resources engineering, he probably has the capabilities.
