Watershed planning is a broadly scoped, multi-disciplinary topic that attempts to minimize the impacts of development on receiving waters. Modeling is needed to support many aspects of watershed planning including the design, hydraulic performance assessment, and optimization of stormwater management operations/facilities. Watershed modeling is intended to manage stormwater from a different perspective than individual site development; that is, it is concerned with the cumulative impact on downstream waterbodies and watercourses, due to modifications to natural, undeveloped hydrologic/hydraulic conditions throughout the watershed.
This specialized PCSWMM and EPA SWMM5 workshop focuses on getting both new and experienced modelers familiarized with the processes and considerations essential for watershed model development within PCSWMM. An overview of the watershed planning process will be given, followed by a detailed review of the multiple design and operational objectives implicit in watershed planning. These concepts will be reinforced using a series of hands-on exercises.
PCSWMM will be used throughout the workshop to speed learning and program execution and enhance understanding of the underlying EPA SWMM5 processes. Participants will develop the necessary skill and confidence to explore and apply the official EPA SWMM5 hydrology/hydraulics engine effectively. During this course you will have an opportunity to learn from a live instructor during scheduled live sessions.
