CREST Master's student Sergio De Hoyos was busy in Denver CO with two major projects Water Conveyance Group building the Seismic Safety Program where his duties include reviewing power plant blueprints to locate non-structural component, data entry and classification. The second big project was with the Sediment and River Hydraulics Group related to the removal of two hydroelectric power dams. Sergio received valuable experience from this internships.
"My internship with the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) has been set up so that I can have the experience of working with different groups within the Technical Service Center. One of my assignments is working with the Water Conveyance Group building the Seismic Safety Program where my duties include reviewing power plant blueprints to locate nonstructural component, data entry and classification. Another big project is with the Sediment and River Hydraulics Group and it’s related to the removal of two hydroelectric power dams in Elwha River, close to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. These dams were removed due to high sediment clogging, effectively cutting the sediment transport capacity of the dam. My task is to find out how much sediment is now stored along the river in order to understand the speed with which sediment is being transported into the ocean and estimate the time it will take to flush out all sediment".
Congrats to Sergio De Hoyos
