ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENTS

 

 

At WaterITech we have great expertise in data analysis, and application of models for assessing and reporting the state of the environment. We offer a range of solutions to meet your specific needs, including:

 

 

Environmental impact assessments, for example, impacts of industrial discharges, impacts of changes in land use, and impacts of changes in agricultural practices on surface water quality.


Analysis of the potential effects of BMPs in watersheds.


Estimation of critical load (e.g. Total Maximum Daily Load, TMDL) for lakes and reservoirs based on state-of-the-art models.


Analysis of potential conservation effects (e.g. biomanipulation, sediment removal, phosphorus flocculation and capping, and re-planting of vegetation) on lakes and reservoirs.


 

 

ENVIRONMENTAL FORECASTING

 

At WaterITech we have many years of expertise in application of environmental models, including the SWAT watershed model and the WET lake and reservoir model. We can also assist in migrating model setups to our Award-winning WaterWebTools.com online solutions which allow us to offer:

 

 

Short-term (weeks) and seasonal (months) forecasting of watershed hydrology, lake and reservoir water quality.


Integration of real-time sensor data into WaterWebTools.com.


 

 

 

CLIMATE CHANGE AND EXTREME WEATHER IMPACTS

 

At WaterITech we are internationally leading in services relating to model-based climate change impact assessment. We offer a range of solutions to meet your specific needs, including:

 

Development and application of long-term and short-term model scenarios for both research and management purposes.


Assessment of long-term climate impacts on lakes, reservoirs and watersheds.


Assessment of the impacts of extreme weather events on lakes, reservoirs and watersheds.

 

 

 

NUMERICAL MODEL APPLICATIONS

 

At WaterITech we have many years of expertise in application, modification and teaching the use of environmental models. If you would like to acquire a model set up for your area of interest, we offer a range of solutions, including:
