Nancy Dent

Vice President, Senior Civil Engineer

Profile Picture

Nancy Dent has nearly three decades of experience in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling and design, investigation of flood impacts, economic analysis, and management of feasibility studies for flood damage reduction. She offers clients not only technical expertise on projects involving water resources analysis and engineering design but also solid capabilities in planning and executing feasibility, environmental, and economic studies and managing multidisciplinary project teams. Nancy's expertise with hydrologic and hydraulic models results in part from her experience with FEMA mapping and flood insurance studies. Supervising FEMA mapping efforts has also given her a solid understanding of FEMA policies, procedures, and personnel. She has worked closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on several large studies and designs for flood control, water quality, and dam rehabilitation. Her work on these projects has included field investigations, economic and environmental studies, detailed plans and specifications, cost estimates, and construction engineering.
