Water Resources Civil Engineer, Senior Project Manager at RESPEC
Mr. Naidu has more than eight years of experience in drainage and flood control projects throughout New Mexico. His experience includes preparation of drainage management plans (DMP), hydrologic analysis, hydraulic analysis of flood control structures, sediment transport, and scour analysis for unlined arroyos and bridge structures. Using modeling/analysis software, Mr. Naidu produces high-quality hydrologic and hydraulic models. He has a proven record of preparing easy-to-understand reports and corresponding maps and figures. He has prepared hydrographs and analyzed storm drains, weirs, pump stations, and detention/surge ponds. Additional skills include preparation of plan specifications, bidding and construction plans, cost estimates, and bidding services. He is familiar with Arc Geographic Information System (ArcGIS); Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) Hydrologic Modeling System, HEC Geospatial Hydrologic Modeling Extension (geoHMS0), HEC River Analysis System, US Environmental Protection Agency Storm Water Management Model (EPA SWMM), StormCad, and CulvertMaster.
