Helping San Diego supply safe and reliable water - DHI Case Story

Developing a hydraulic transient model for San Diego County Water Authority

San Diego County Water Authority’s (SDCWA) mission is to provide a safe and reliable water supply to its 24 member agencies in the region. Its member agencies – which include cities, districts and a military base – in turn provide this water to a USD 130 billion business economy and three million residents in San Diego County. DHI has been awarded a contract to develop a dynamic transient flow model that will be suitable for modelling SDCWA’s conveyance and distribution system, including but not limited to pipelines, hydraulic facilities, reservoirs and aqueducts, as well as relevant facilities of other local agencies that have a significant hydraulic influence on the SDCWA’s system.
