Save the Date! 2D Floodplain Modeling Workshop Using HEC-RAS v.5.0 - August 8-10, 2016, San Antonio, Texas
The full release of HEC-RAS 5.0 is here! Come learn about the new 2D modeling features from industry experts in this 2.5 day, hands on training.
The workshop will focus on the newest version of the Hydrologic Engineering Center River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) software package for modeling two dimensional (2D) unsteady flow applications. In the workshop, you will learn how to approach and construct a 2D model for unsteady flow conditions, as well as effectively view and analyze results.

Flint Water Crisis
The water tragedy in Flint, Michigan, has been the subject of extensive media coverage, both locally and nationally. Unfortunately, as with any incident of high public interest, the race to provide immediate coverage can lead to inaccurate or incomplete reporting. LAN offers this resource as a place to learn the truth about its involvement with the transfer of water from the Detroit source to the Flint River.
A New Diamond for Austin
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and its consultants are completing the engineering design of a 2.069 mi, $53-million project that will alleviate congestion on Loop 1 on the west side of Austin—known locally as the MoPac Expressway, for the Missouri Pacific Railroad—a critical north-south artery in the state's capital. To accomplish this, the department plans to use both a traditional diamond intersection at one point (on La Crosse Avenue) and an uncommon diverging diamond intersection (DDI) at another (Slaughter Lane).
