We are pleased to welcome our newest Senior Drainage Engineer, Xiangang (Simon) Li, PE, CFM, to the team. Simon joined our Round Rock office in November and has hit the ground running. With more than 15 years of water resources experience, Simon has focused on large watershed modeling and floodplain mapping efforts for such clients as FEMA, the San Antonio River Authority (SARA), the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), the U.S. International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC) and Honolulu Rail Transit. He received a Master’s Degree in both Electrical and Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and is also a Certified Floodplain Manager and a Certified Professional Hydrologist.
Prior to joining KFA Simon worked on floodplain modeling for the Leon Creek and Upper San Antonio River Watersheds in San Antonio, the Great Oaks Drive Brushy Creek Bridge Replacement in Williamson County, and drainage analysis for the Tijuana River on the U.S-Mexico border. He also served as a project engineer for the FEMA Region 6 Base Level Engineering Study where he applied WISE (Watershed Information System) modules and ArcGIS tools to delineate 1,000+ square mile watersheds and helped lead the hydrologic and hydraulic modeling efforts to deliver updated floodplain delineations using HEC-RAS 2D.
Currently, Simon is supporting a variety of projects at KFA, including floodplain mapping efforts and transportation drainage design for TxDOT and municipal clients.
Welcome to the KFAmily, Simon! We’re glad to have you on board.
