WRE was retained by the Mammoth Community Water District to conduct a hazard study and prepare inundations maps for a potential breach of Lake Mary Dam, in Mono County. The study included hydrologic and hydraulic analyses, and the dam breach analysis had to consider two reservoirs downstream of Lake Mary. The final report was well received by the US Forest Service, owner of the dams.
The AECOM-WRE Joint Venture developed a Dam Safety Program for the Hetch Hetchy Water and Power system. The program included surveillance and monitoring plans for six dams in Tuolumne County (O'Shaughnessy, Cherry, Eleanor, Priest, Moccasin, and Early Intake). WRE managed the project and worked with subconsultant Terra Engineers in the preparation of the documents. Hetch Hetchy management considered the report a "high-quality, very thorough" work product.
WRE was awarded a $50M contract by the US Bureau of Reclamation on September 28, 2012. Under this 5-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract for professional services, WRE will be leading a group of ten firms in assisting Reclamation with water resources management and other programs that include planning, development, and operation and maintenance activities within the Mid-Pacific Region.
