Kermit Booker Elementary School

Lochsa Engineering provided civil and flood control design for this school addition at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Balzar Avenue, as well as floodplain management to satisfy the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) design requirement for the Las Vegas Wash floodplain (Zone A) through the site.  The project tasks included analyzing FEMA effective hydrologic models, detailed hydraulic model of the floodplain throughout Balzar Street, and flood wall design to protect the school campus. Lochsa Engineering obtained approval from FEMA for the Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) application to remove the majority of the school campus from the floodplain.
