Flood Risk Management is the major program area of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and, since GEC is focused on providing technical assistance to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, much of GEC’s project experience involves the many study facets of flood control project formulation and evaluation.
GEC has conducted literally hundreds of flood risk management planning studies for Corps districts across the United States. We have worked from California to New York and from Minnesota to Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. GEC has developed into a significant technical resource for the Corps because our staff of economists, planners, sociologists, and public involvement specialists is trained and experienced in the Corps’ planning process.
GEC’s Economics and Planning staff is highly experienced in the conduct of studies in support of the Corps’ National Economic Development responsibilities. Most staff members have advanced degrees and 20 or more years’ experience. GEC’s Economics and Planning staff is adept at use of the state-of-the-art econometric models such as IMPLAN and computer software such as HEC-FIA, HEC-FDA, IWR-PLAN, CACFDAS, and @RISK.
