    2016 Guidelines

    All MOAs submitted on or after 11/21/2016 will need to follow the 2016 Guidelines for Drainage Studies and Hydraulic Design. One of the biggest changes concerning MOAs is the rounding of Base Flood Elevations; BFEs must be rounded to the tenth and then compared.  (see Guidelines Chapter 15, Section 15.9). Also, all water surface elevations (including the 100-year) are to be reported to the tenth of a foot in the BSR or CSR (see Guidelines Chapter 8, Section 8.8).

    Use of HEC-RAS 5.0 and up

    December 07, 2016 - HEC-RAS 5.0 and up will not be accepted for use on NCDOT projects until further notice.  Until notified, continue to use HEC-RAS 4.1 (3.1.1 or higher is acceptable).
