Jonathan McIntosh, of the RTI Center for Water Resources, specializes in analysis, risk assessment, and modeling technologies that help clients manage water resources across the United States. He develops workflows to execute hydrologic, hydraulic, and reservoir models for flood risk and water supply studies. He also drafts technical documentation and reports.
Currently, Mr. McIntosh manages the Probabilistic Flood Hazard Analysis project for the Tennessee Valley Authority. This multiyear project involves developing hydrologic hazard curves for TVA’s reservoir system. He has also contributed to similar probabilistic hazards analysis work on a flood risk study for New Brunswick Power. He has performed reservoir modeling for probable maximum flood studies for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and develops monthly and seasonal reservoir volume forecasts on a weekly basis for Grand Coulee and The Dalles reservoirs in the Columbia River Basin.
Mr. McIntosh came to RTI in 2015 from the U.S. Forest Service, where he designed and provided oversight of public works construction projects. He is a certified Civil Engineer in Training in Colorado, and skilled in Python, HEC-HMS, HEC-ResSim, RiverWare, TSTool, and ArcGIS.
