Water distribution networks require the use of hydraulic models for accurate and reliable water supplies.
Hydraulic modeling is an essential planning tool when considering current and future water systems needs and improving water system reliability and efficiency. Our professionals are experienced in HEC-RAS, HEC-2, WSP-2, WSPRO, FEQ, HY-22, among other software programs to accurately model the hydraulics of your system.
Hydraulic Modeling Experience
Aquifer Testing and Well Field Development
Fort Madison, Iowa
The City of Fort Madison desired improvements and expansion of its existing water supply and treatment facilities. Groundwater from the Mississippi River alluvial aquifer was the preferred option to supply 6.0 MGD, which could increase ultimately to 9.0 MGD. HR Green conducted preliminary research of the geology and hydrogeology of a 23 square mile area
Elevated Water Storage Tank
By spreading the towers further apart and reducing line velocities, less pressure loss should be seen on the outlying areas of the distribution network in the City of Keokuk.
Water System Evaluation
The City of Palo is a town of approximately 900 people which had no city-wide public drinking water distribution system prior to the flood of June 2008.
Addresses Aging Infrastructure with Facility Plan
The City was in the midst of rapid growth and it quickly became apparent that the community needed master planning completed for its water and wastewater system to address aging infrastructure in the older portions of the community as well as expansion plans for new developments.
Water Purification Plant Filter Expansion
Sioux Falls, SD
The City of Sioux Falls Water Purification Plant (WPP) provides potable water for the greater Sioux Falls metro area. Master planning by previous consultants revealed a need for increased capacity to meet future water demands. Several “bottlenecks” were identified within the WPP treatment processes, and one of the most critical was the filtration process.
