General Description of Requirement
The City seeks progressive modelling software to be used to develop the citywide sewer hydraulic/hydrologic model. The features of the software will enable the City to model sanitary and storm flows (gravity and pressurized), rainfall and run-off, green infrastructure, and stormwater quality. The City’s goal to serve its citizens and protect the environment necessitates long-term sewer and drainage infrastructure planning through an informed and data-driven decision-making process: a hydraulic/hydrologic model that mimics characteristics of the sewer system and urban watersheds has proven vital in data-driven utility and watershed planning.
