Pairing Hydraulic Modeling & GIS to Gain Insights and Mitigate Risks in Stormwater Systems

Simon Newton, Product Success Engineer - Water, Bentley Systems

Newton Simon Bentley_edited.jpg

Learn how and why hydraulic modeling is an essential tool for designing new and upgrading or rehabilitating existing stormwater systems. Don’t let rain events cause havoc in your piping system. Use hydraulic modeling for greater insights to understand how the rain is getting into your system, how big and deep pipes need to be and to simulate and validate that your system can handle storm events. While GIS is great for mapping the existing system, it is necessary to pair GIS with hydraulic analysis for proper understand and better decision making.
