Geosyntec partners with emergency managers, owners, and operators of dams and levees to assess consequences associated with flood hazards and evaluate mitigation measures aimed at reducing life, property, and economic loss.
As an integral part of the risk management process, our dedicated staff regularly conduct screening, qualitative, semi-quantitative, and quantitative analyses to evaluate both direct consequences (interaction with floodwater) and indirect consequences (unsafe conditions resulting from flooding) using industry best practices. Geosyntec utilizes a multidisciplinary approach with teams comprised of engineers, scientists, economists, and financial analysts.
Our team approaches consequences assessments by addressing key considerations, including population at risk, hazard characteristics, ability, timing, and effectiveness of warnings, community preparedness, evacuation processes, fatality rates, economic damages, and environmental losses, among others. Geosyntec provides comprehensive support consequences services, including:
