Hydraulic Modeling

Tata & Howard utilizes various hydraulic modeling programs such as WaterGEMS, InfoWater, InfoSewer, HydroCad and US EPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM). Every water, wastewater, and stormwater system needs a long range plan. Through the performance of hydraulic modeling, a staged program of improvements is developed for the client. Additionally, a calibrated computer hydraulic model of the system allows for review of potential impacts of proposed developments in the service area. The report, when successfully followed, provides a blueprint of prioritized improvements for our clients.

Since the firm’s inception in 1992, Tata & Howard has remained a niche firm with deep experience and expertise in the water environment, and has provided  hydraulic modeling services for countless municipalities throughout New England. Tata & Howard has one of the largest pipe asset management databases of any consulting engineering firm in New England. In fact, we have data on over 5,000 miles of New England pipe, providing utilities with critical information about their systems such as condition and probability of failure of certain pipe cohorts.

Project Experience

Tata & Howard recently completed a Regional System Study for the Southern Maine Regional Water Council (SMRWC), consisting of seven water districts in southern Maine. The purpose of the study was to provide a detailed update to their 2008 Regional Water System Master Plan Study, which studied possible interconnections between the water systems within the SMRWC.
