The primary objective of the engineering study was to identify improvements necessary to provide flood protection for the Kingsford Manufacturing facility to the plant from a 100-year storm and determine upstream and downstream water surface evaluation impacts caused by proposed improvements using hydraulic modeling (HEC-RAS) to establish levee top elevations and, upstream and downstream water surface elevations. A detailed design was prepared based on the study findings.
LSSE’s study/design included flood embankment levee, floodwall and modifications to existing fill/embankment at the riverfront facility. Services included but were not limited to: surveying (13 river cross sections); engineering study; design; COE, FEMA, DEP and DNR permitting; wetland delineation and identification of probable replacement sites and procedures; base mapping; and HEC-RAS modeling.
