A Tale of Three Cities In 2D
Abstract:Waukesha, Wisconsin has stormwater flooding. Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin has both stormwater flooding and basement backups from separate sanitary sewers, and Lincolnwood, Illinois has basement backups from its combined sewers. A similar sewer system analysis approach that includes advanced one-dimensional and two-dimensional dynamic hydraulic modeling provided decision makers with the information with which to make long-term infrastructure investment decisions.
For all three communities, the XP-SWMM 1D/2D models included a one-dimensional representation of the sewers and two-dimensional representation of the surface. XP-SWMM 2D provided the ability to simulate surface and subsurface flows and interaction thereof in a precise and fully dynamic manner. Capital improvement programs for Lincolnwood and Whitefish Bay have been prepared while Waukesha's is nearing completion.
