Hydraulic Modelling

Hydraulic modelling by Waterco. Hydraulic modelling enables the accurate estimation of water levels and flood extents for rivers and watercourses.

We help clients and partners to understand the potential impact of water on their project or development by using the latest software tools to model and represent the water cycle from source to sea.

We can help clients in understanding the potential impact of a specific housing, commercial or infrastructure development on a flood plain, or urban area, or how human activity might affect the quality of our inland or coastal waters and the implications for people, environments and ecosystems. We might also help our water company clients to understand issues around their capacity to continue to deliver clean drinking water to a growing population or how best to ensure the safe and effective management of commercial and residential effluent using existing and proposed infrastructure.

Supporting and complementary services such as civil, structural and mechanical engineering design, geo-environmental and ecology services complete the offering to ensure all elements of a new development are considered.

Waterco operate an ISO9001 quality system and all elements of the modelling process, from initial brief to feedback on completion, are standardised. Our quality system defines protocols for data storage, meetings, versioning, logging changes, peer review, output formats, internal and external communication, documentation and reporting. We have invested in high-specification computers and modelling and GIS software and ensure all staff are well-trained and kept up-to-date with latest technology and research outputs.
