Stormwater Modelling Guidelines Workshop

The Modelling SIG has been working on the development of national modelling guidance for urban stormwater modelling. The SIG sent out a survey in July 2020 to assess the need for such guidelines. 96% of respondents said that these would be helpful to them, with key benefits being consistency, efficiency, and the provision of a minimum standard for work nationally. The survey was followed up by a workshop at the Water New Zealand Conference & Expo in November 2020, which aimed to confirm the topics that should be covered, understand existing guidance used in the industry, and agree which topics are priority.

Based on input from the survey and workshop we are now developing the scope and delivery plan. The scope will be presented at a workshop at the Water NZ Modelling Symposium in March, for feedback from practitioners.
