Heather Lau

Heather has seven years of experience in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, floodplain modeling and permitting, and water quality management. She develops and updates XP-SWMM and HEC-RAS models, which are used to determine flooding impacts, establish storm-sewer network deficiencies, redesign culvert crossings, and evaluate lake-level flood elevations. Heather has worked on projects addressing stormwater treatment and reuse. Employing the Minnesota minimal impact design standards (MIDS), she has designed and sized best management practices such as bioretention basins and underground storage and reuse structures using AutoCAD Civil 3D.
