MSA designed a FEMA-accredited floodwall to protect existing buildings from 100-year flooding.

Heavy rains in 2007 and 2008 caused substantial flooding and damage in the City's downtown. The City hired MSA to design a floodwall to protect the downtown area from similar events in the future. Designing the floodwall required extensive analysis of the water elevations to adequately address floodplain issues in accordance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency's standards. Because the project required construction in and adjacent to the Beaver Dam River, the project also required close coordination with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
