Stormwater runoff can contain significant amounts of harmful pollutants that contribute to adverse water quality impacts in receiving watercourses and waterbodies. EPA SWMM5 generates pollutant loads and concentrations from various sources including atmospheric deposition, surface buildup and washoff in stormwater systems, dry and wet weather inflows in wastewater systems, and discharge from groundwater systems. These constituents can then be routed through the drainage system and discharged into the outfall. Along the way, a portion of the pollutant load can be treated and deposited within the hydraulic network.

This specialized workshop is intended for experienced modelers interested in building skills in modeling water quality. The workshop will include the modeling fundamentals described above including building an input file and interpreting model results. Model applications to be explored include statistical and flow duration analyses of pollutant loads/concentrations, analytical methods/metrics to characterize long-term pollutant removal efficiency, and detention pond design considerations. Concepts will be reinforced through several case studies of design/analysis projects throughout North America.

PCSWMM will be used throughout the workshop to speed learning and program execution as well as enhance understanding of the underlying EPA SWMM5 processes. Through presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises, attendees will understand the relevant water quality modeling processes, the capabilities and limitations of PCSWMM and EPA SWMM5, and develop the necessary skill and confidence to undertake water quality modeling projects.
