ENGEO’s expert engineers, geologists, hydrologists, and GIS analysts provide post-fire, post-flood, and post-earthquake disaster recovery and mitigation services.

Our professionals work closely with state, county, and local agencies, emergency responders, geologic hazard abatement districts, homeowners’ associations, and private landowners to assess the immediate and potential effects of natural disasters. Services provided include:

  • Post-fire hazard evaluation
  • Drone surveys and aerial imagery for post-fire reconnaissance
  • Debris flow mapping
  • Development of GIS-based post-fire asset/risk management planning tools
  • Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling
  • Permanent mitigation designs involving ring net barriers, debris basins, and culvert bollards/screens
  • Temporary mitigation designs utilizing sustainable/re-usable erosion and sediment control products
  • Post-fire related environmental impacts assessment
  • Emergency response planning
  • Resource agency permitting
  • Weather station and camera installation for real-time monitoring
  • Implementation and management of fire-fuel abatement zones through the creation and management of Community Based Geologic Hazard Abatement Districts (GHADs)
  • Seismic Assessments
  • Geologic Mapping
  • Seismic Retrofits
  • Seismic Hazard Mitigation
  • Seismic Monitoring
  • Actively patrolling levees during riverine flood-stage flows
  • Providing emergency field design for levee breach/stabilization activities
  • Designing long-term dam, levee, and seawall improvement
  • Establishing Community-Based Flood Risk Reduction districts to provide flood improvement funding and post-flood recovery insurance.

Post-Fire Mitigation

Millions of acres burn across the western United States each year. Wildfires destroy stabilizing vegetation, which can facilitate devastating geologic hazards such as mudflows, debris flows, and excessive surface erosion during subsequent rainstorms. ENGEO’s team of engineers, geologists, hydrologists, and GIS analysts provide post-fire geologic hazard mitigation efforts to protect critical infrastructure, properties, and sensitive water bodies. ENGEO utilizes cutting-edge technologies and products to remain a step ahead of post-fire geologic hazards.
