Pete Haug

Water Resources Engineer

Eau Claire, WI

"Without the experienced engineers working on the (Minong Dam Repairs) project, it could have been a disaster. Special thanks to Pete Haug. This is not the first project he has brought through the mire."
Frank Dallam
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

Pete joined Ayres Associates in 2010, bringing 11 years of experience in hydraulic engineering design and testing. He has managed junior project managers, technicians, and equipment fabricators for hydraulic engineering consulting and construction projects. Pete has supervised hydraulic engineering analyses of dam structural modifications related to improving fish passage efficiency, nitrogen supersaturation compliance, sedimentation reduction, channel/bank stabilization, flow control measurement accuracies, physical model study limitations, and pump intake vorticity/vibration reduction.

Pete has completed and supervised advanced hydraulic calculations such as spillway gate rating curves, river stage-discharge curves, sedimentation analyses, numerical model development (HEC-RAS, Visual HEC-1, DAMBRK, and backwater analysis), and design/measurement uncertainty quantification. He has supervised structural calculations of hydraulic structures, including spillway gate loads, steel support beams, concrete beams/slabs, and other spillway and flume modifications.

He is proficient with RTK, dGPS, and total station survey equipment and the following instruments: acoustic doppler velocimetry and acoustic doppler current profilers, bathymetric survey equipment, pressure transducers, wave capacitance probes, flow meters, bed sediment instruments, temperature thermistors, and coring equipment.
