Surface Water and Integrated 1D-2D Modelling with EPA SWMM5 and PCSWMM Workshops

Johannesburg, South Africa 

October 17 - 19, 2017


We are pleased to announce 3-days of hands-on training workshops on EPA SWMM5 and PCSWMM.

Learn the theory, time-saving tools and practical hands-on applications of hydrologic and hydraulic modeling for stormwater, wastewater and watershed systems, with special emphasis on system design, system remediation, green infrastructure (LIDs), integrated 1D-2D and flood modeling. You can register for the full 3-day workshop, the 2-Day (Introduction and Intermediate) or just the 1-day advanced workshop on integrated 1D-2D modelling.

The workshops build on each other. Depending on your interest and level of experience, you can choose which days you would like to attend and earn up to 3 CPDs. 

All attendees will be provided with a full 60-day software license of PCSWMM Professional 2D, as well as the EPA SWMM5 software and access to an extensive collection of online learning materials and all digital course documentation.



Day 1: Beginner

Designed with the beginner in mind, Day 1 focuses on introducing the theory, concepts and tools available for EPA SWMM5 modeling. Lectures are interspersed with real-world hands-on exercises, with plenty of time for one-on-one interaction with the instructors.

Day 2: Intermediate/advanced 

Day 2 focuses on progressing your existing skills and diving deeper into the capabilities of EPA SWMM and PCSWMM. We explore green infrastructure (LIDs, SuDS) and water quality modeling, as well as stormwater reuse and natural system modeling.

Day 3: Advanced 1D-2D

Day 3 focuses on intermediate and advanced level topics with emphasis on integrated 1D-2D model development and results interpretation for urban flood analysis.
