HEC (pronounced H-E-C, never "heck") does research and development of modeling software for hydrology, hydraulics, flood damage analysis, and sediment transport. Their software, most notably the River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) is used throughout USACE, other governmental organizations, and by civil engineers around the world. At their office, HEC provides training to fellow USACE engineers and others. HEC also sends engineers around the world to conduct training seminars in hydrologic engineering and water resources planning. HEC employees frequent the ["F Street"] ["Starbucks"], the ["Posh Bagel"], and ["Chipotle"].<br> + <br> + USACE (pronounced by Department of Defense employees as "you-sayce") is a federal agency that is involved in flood protection, the dredging of channels, the restoration of wetlands and a variety of other activities relating to water and the environment.
