Hydrology and Hydraulics

WET specializes in hydrologic modeling and hydraulic design. WET utilizes various tools including SEDCAD and HEC-HMS for evaluating the relationship between precipitation and surface runoff to predict the hydrologic response of a watershed system. Hydrologic modeling is an essential part in completing hydraulic designs for detention structures (ponds/dams), water measurement structures (weirs/flumes, etc.) and water conveyance structures (diversions, ditches, culverts, etc.)

Hydraulic design experience includes the design of the following:

  • Small dam and impoundment structures
  • Spillway and other outfalls
  • Diversions
  • Road Ditches
  • Channels
  • Culverts
  • Weirs

WET has experience with steady and unsteady flow modeling using Army Corp of Engineer Software HEC-RAS, to evaluate channel hydraulics and structure impact.
