The water distribution modeling training begins with the basics of hydraulic theory as it applies to water distribution modeling, then takes participants through more advanced topics such as working with multiple scenarios, model calibration, pump selection, energy cost studies, extended period simulation, fire flow analysis and water quality. Participants will become familiar with EPANET and use the software to reinforce concepts with the workshop problems.
