Physical Space:  Low Water Crossing Model

The Three Dimensional Low Water Crossing Model is a portable simulation system designed to demonstrate the hazards of low water crossing in the Austin, Texas area. Three basic scenarios are possible using the model: typical low water crossing similar to bull creek, culvert, and creek overflow similar to the Shoal Creek @ Lamar area between 12th & 15th streets. Other scenarios such as rescue and drowning may also be demonstrated. The operator can adjust water flow into and out of the model simulating different flood stages and hazards.

The 4' x 4' scale model is used in schools, and other organizations to demonstrate the hazards of low water crossing around Austin. 'Austin is crisscrossed with creeks and tributaries, with many bridges and roadways that go over these waterways. Low water crossings are a silent hazard until a flash flood hits.' - City of Austin, Disaster Ready web site.
