SURFACE WATER BRANCH TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM NO. 84.07

Subject:  PERSONNEL--Coordinators for flood-insurance studies and for urban
                     studies

Effective immediately, Ernest Cobb is the Coordinator for flood-insurance
studies and Marshall Jennings is the Coordinator for urban studies.

The appointment of Ernest Cobb to coordinate flood-insurance studies reflects
the increasing role of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in these studies.
Ernie has been working closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency
for over a year during a period of reinvolvement by the USGS in flood-
insurance studies.

Marshall Jennings brings to the role of urban studies Coordinator a great
deal of interest and expertise in urban runoff studies.  Marshall is well
known in urban studies circles and has published a number of articles on the
subject.

Questions concerning either of these activities should be addressed to the
appropriate coordinator.




                                           Marshall E. Moss
                                           Chief, Surface Water Branch
