Sunrise Harbor Modeling Assessment
Client: City of Coral Gables (sub-consultant to 300 Engineering)
The City of Coral Gables needed to assess the drainage system in the area of Sunrise Harbor. LAGO provided modeling-related support services regarding data review and processing, existing conditions ICPR model development, and scenario evaluation modeling.
LAGO developed an existing ICPR model for Sunrise Harbor to estimate peak stages from 5- and 100-year design storms. Different scenarios were simulated intended to improve the drainage system and to reduce flooding caused by extreme rainfall events.
LAGO processed the model results to obtain flood maps, as well as stage and flow hydrographs. Existing conditions and scenarios model results were compared to evaluate the benefit of the proposed drainage improvement projects.
