The USACE Fort Worth District is involved in numerous cutting edge studies locally, nationally, and worldwide. Studies support flood risk management, dam and levee safety, water supply, and river / lake forecasting. Training in HEC-RAS and HEC-HMS and other programs is provided annually to maintain professional certification. Work-Life balance is encouraged through the use of telework and flexible work scheduling.
Analyze a full range of hydraulic and hydrologic problems involved in complex flood protection planning for specified urban or rural areas, including the determination of frequency flow estimates and design water surface profiles in the study area.
Use industry standard software including Geographic Information Systems (GIS) programs and utilities (ArcGIS, GeoHMS, and GeoRAS) to prepare and import geospatial data for use in hydrologic and hydraulic models.
Use hydraulic modeling to analyze effect of proposed modifications.
Assist in the water management activities of the District lakes under both emergency and normal conditions.
Instruct lake project personnel on proper use of water control manuals, reporting procedures, emergency operation and insures that established regulations are being followed.
Prepare reports, appendices, and supplementary text materials for planning, engineering, FEMA floodplain, and dam safety studies, as well as water control manuals.
Provide technical guidance to and review for technical adequacy the work of lower graded personnel peers and consulting engineers for hydrologic and hydraulic studies.
Bachelor's degree (or higher degree) in engineering that included at least 30 semester hours in any combination of courses in hydrology, the physical sciences, geophysics, chemistry, engineering science, soils, mathematics, atmospheric science, meteorology, geology, or the management or conservation of water resources.
One year of specialized experience which includes the following: 1.) Mentoring lower graded engineers in Hydrology and Hydraulics modeling AND 2.) Compiling field hydraulic and/or hydrology survey data for use in Flood Risk Management modeling; AND 3.) Conducting Hydraulic and/or Hydrology studies for existing Flood Risk projects to provide recommendations for modifications. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-11).
About U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has approximately 37,000 dedicated Civilians and Soldiers delivering engineering services to customers in more than 130 countries worldwide.
With environmental sustainability as a guiding principle, our disciplined Corps team is working diligently to strengthen our Nation’s security by building and maintaining America’s infrastructure and providing military facilities where our servicemembers train, work and live. We are also researching and developing technology for our war fighters while protecting America’s interests abroad by using our engineering expertise to promote stability and improve quality of life.
We are energizing the economy by dredging America’s waterways to support the movement of critical commodities and providing recreation opportunities at our campgrounds, lakes and marinas.
And by devising hurricane and storm damage reduction infrastructure, we are reducing risks from disasters.
Our men and women are protecting and restoring the Nation’s environment including critical efforts in the Everglades, the Louisiana coast, and along many of our Nation’s major waterways. The Corps is also cleaning sites contaminated with haz...ardous, toxic or radioactive waste and material in an effort to sustain the environment.
Through deeds, not words, we are BUILDING STRONG.
