WQMAP

WQMAP is an integrated modeling system designed to study surface water quality issues. The system allows the engineer or scientist to develop numerical grids, perform hydrodynamic simulations, conduct single constituent pollutant transport and multiple constituent eutrophication studies in a geographic context all from one application.

Applications for WQMAP

  • Total Maximum Daily Loads
  • Industrial Produced Water Discharges
  • Combined Sewer Overflows
  • Cooling Water Intakes and Discharges
  • Effects of Engineered Structures
