ACE in the hole! Achieving the “perfect” flood control project.
Track: Architecture, Engineering, and Construction
Authors: Pedro Melo Rodriguez
In natural and built environments engineers often have difficulty finding the “perfect” solution between functionality, community support and landscape resources. Engineered projects meet functional aspects but often lack community support and sensitivity to the landscape. FCDMC developed a Context Sensitive Flood Hazard Mitigation tool for use in regional flood control projects to address this. The ACE tool achieves “perfect” projects by making it Acceptable, Compatible & Effective (ACE).
