HYDROLOGICAL AND HYDRAULIC MODELING

WRM Page

Water is an essential resource for all life on the planet. Much effort in water resource management is directed at optimizing the use of water and in minimizing the environmental impact of water use on the natural environment. The successful management of water resource requires accurate knowledge of the water resource available, the uses to which it may be put, the demands, measures to and processes to evaluate the significance to translate policy decisions into actions on the ground

Managing water as an economic good is an important way of achieving efficient and equitable use, and of encouraging conservation and protection of water resources. At the same time, water is a resource under considerable pressure. Alterations in the hydrologic regime due to global climatic, demographic and economic changes have serious consequences on the people and environment.

Hydrology and hydraulic modeling can be used as dynamic simulation models. These Modeling Systems are designed to simulate the complete hydrologic processes.

CWD has vast expertise in the field of water resources engineering and watershed management. Areas of expertise include building hydrologic and hydraulic models for planning capital projects, long-term control plans for combined sewer overflows, developing sanitary and storm water master plans, flood mitigation, best management practices, surface water quality, storm water management, and modeling green infrastructures.

  • River Modelling

This involves the application of process-based hydrological and river models for simulating catchment processes, river flow and water quality using modeling softwares.

  • Water Shed Management Studies

It is the study of the relevant characteristics of a watershed aimed at the sustainable distribution of its resources and the process of creating and implementing plans, programs, and projects to sustain and enhance watershed functions that affect the plant, animal, and human communities within a watershed boundary.

  • Collection System Modeling

IHydraulic models are an essential tool in understanding wastewater collection system behavior for system design, operations, assessment of performance, development of rehabilitation programs, support of permit applications, and demonstration of regulatory compliance.

  • Flood Analysis

Hydrographs and flood frequency analyses are ways that engineers determine the probability that a certain area will flood during rainstorms of certain intensities, the expected response of a specific watershed region to a rainstorm, and annual/seasonal streamflow information.

  • Sanitary Sewer Master Plans

The Sanitary Sewer Master Plan is based on assessments of the hydraulics, physical condition and maintenance of the collection system. The Master Plan outlines recommendations and improvements to provide adequate hydraulic capacity and improve the reliability of the collection system.

  • Storm Water Master Plans

The Comprehensive Flood and Stormwater Master Plan is the policy that guides flood management, stormwater drainage (detention, retention and sewers), and stormwater quality in the city.

  • Lake Management And Rejuvenation Of Lakes

Lake rejuvenation is the process of restoration of the original characteristics and appearance of the lake which could have been previously destroyed due to rapid urbanization and many other similar factors.
