December 2012 – FM Metro Basin-Wide Modeling Approach
HEC-HMS Model Development Various Tributaries above the Red River of the North at Halstad, MN
The purpose of this study was to develop a consistent set of HEC-HMS models for tributaries within the Red River of the North to assist in development and analysis of future flood damage reduction projects. The scope of the study consisted of performing terrain analysis on LiDAR data to determine HEC-HMS modeling parameters, calibration, and synthetic model development. LiDAR data from the Red River Basin Mapping Initiative was generalized into a 5 meter by 5 meter Digital Elevation Model (DEM). This DEM served as the base for all terrain analysis processing for the project. Project tasks were completed by a team of consulting firms on behalf of the City of Fargo, ND, City of Moorhead, MN, and the US Army Corps of Engineers. The study was completed in December 2011.
Datasets on this site contain spatial data generated from terrain analysis performed on LiDAR data, HEC-HMS models, and a summary report for the project. Datasets for the project have been broken down into 10 subwatersheds. Click the “Subwatershed Summary Map” below for to determine the appropriate subwatershed dataset to download. This map also defines the consulting firm responsible for each subwatershed. Datasets for each subwatershed are downloadable as a zip file. Each zip file contains final GIS datasets, final HEC-HMS Models, and the final report of the subwatershed. Within each of the downloadable datasets, an excel file titled “100% Submittal Checklist” summarizes the available GIS data. Also available below is the Final Report for the project.
