Water Technology has undertaken numerous hydrodynamic modelling projects under The Living Murray program. The principal objective of these projects was to create modelling tools capable of testing complex water management scenarios with detailed assessments of environmental performance.
Hydrodynamic 1D-2D coupled MIKE FLOOD models were developed along with specialist post-processing tools. The models were fully calibrated to a range of historic flooding events. The hydrodynamic models allowed water management options to be modelled and assessed against environmental objectives. This allowed mangers to gain a detailed understanding of their current ability to manage their asset and further optimise future water management events. It also assisted managers in building business cases for further infrastructure to deliver increased environmental benefits.
