December 2014 - REC ANNOUNCES NEW WATER RESOURCE DIVISION DIRECTOR
REC Consultants Inc. (REC) is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Luis Parra as Director of the Water Resources Division. As an established environmental and engineering consulting firm, REC wants to share our excitement regarding the enhancement and expansion of our current services to include the vast expertise of Dr. Parra in further developing a Water Resources Division.
Dr. Parra has successfully customized the Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) continuous simulation for hydromodification for San Diego County. He has prepared more than seventy Hydromodification Management Plans (HMPs) using his optimization of the site-specific continuous simulation model. This new model allows the reduction of storm water hydromodification facilities (without compromising compliance with permit requirements) to 25-40% of the sizes originally recommended by San Diego County’s general HMP. HMP studies utilizing the new SWMM optimized by Dr. Parra have been approved by the County of San Diego, the Cities of San Diego, Oceanside, Vista, Encinitas, Escondido, San Marcos, Carlsbad, Solana Beach, Chula Vista, Poway, Lemon Grove and many others in San Diego County in addition to the City of Mission Viejo in Orange County.
REC is very proud to welcome Luis to our family and to our newly expanded WATER RESOURCES DIVISION. He is truly the leader in adaptive and cutting-edge hydromodification plans throughout Southern California.
