A water model (hydraulic model) is a computerized mathematical model of a water system used to analyze the system's hydraulic behavior. Water utilities provide customers with a safe, reliable, continuous supply of high-quality drinking water delivered through a complex network of pipelines, numerous pumps, regulating valves, and storage reservoirs. The performance of these water systems is often difficult to measure and understand because of their physical size, complexity, underground location, and the large amount of system data needed to fully grasp how they function.
Data is used from several sources to build and maintain a water model:
By utilizing water modeling to analyze your system we will gain a full understanding of its hydraulic behavior. We will use your model as a tool to plan infrastructure improvements, develop operational maintenance strategies and proactively manage your system. The future accuracy of the model will depend on regular updating, maintenance and even re-calibration to reflect physical changes in the network.
