RESPEC Wins ACEC National Award for Innovative Eastern South Dakota Flood Information System

Big Sioux River Flood Information System project Receives Praise

RAPID CITY, S.D. (PRWEB) December 03, 2020

When RESPEC provided the state of South Dakota with the Big Sioux River Flood Information System (BSRFIS), we did not expect to win an award. We did what we always do: focused on the client’s needs, community improvement, and the residents’ safety. The BSRFIS advanced through local and state award stages to receive a national Engineering Excellence Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC).

In 2014, a flood revealed shortcomings in available data and modeling that prevented state and local authorities from responding appropriately. The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (SD DENR) realized the need for a predictive model and comprehensive flood-mapping system.

RESPEC led the team that created the BSRFIS. We designed the BSRFIS so that observed and forecasted meteorological data fed into a basin-wide hydrologic model. When

Wink Hartman: Kansas should invest in information technology – Opinion – The Topeka Capital-Journal

Government has many functions, agencies and departments with the main goal of delivering service to the people of Kansas.

To best deliver these services and work for the people of our state, Kansas’ government must adopt and use business philosophies of putting the residents first. Government is above all a service business and needs to make efficient and quality service a top priority.

This year we’ve seen issues with government service delivery. The unprecedented number of unemployment claims filed with the Department of Labor due to COVID-19 has shown this. The heavy influx of claims could easily catch anyone off guard, but the response to addressing this influx was not quick enough. Plus, long-standing issues in state government contributed to the issue.

Information technology may not be the most exciting subject and mainframes — hardware and software for government administration will never light a fire under anyone — but it
