A case study of the Rock River Water Reclamation District's (RRWRD) wastewater collection system is presented from the hydraulic modeling perspective. Data from phase III of this multi-year project is used to illustrate the need to investigate hydrologic simulation options to best address the project objectives. The emphasis was on the model input, such as the sewershed hydrologic parameters, and their relative impact on the capital improvement plan (CIP) costs in sizing infrastructure to accommodate anticipated growth and related wet weather impacts. The case study discusses the methods available in the hydrologic computation model of the InfoWorks software that was used in this project.
