Stormwater Management and Flood Modeling with XPSWMM/XPStorm (US)

Training Course

This class will focus on stormwater modeling, starting with basic hydrology and hydraulics on the first-half of day one. The second part of day one will provide more in-depth instruction and exercise for Low Impact Development (LID) modeling, as well as other more advanced stormwater modeling functions and tools such as dual drainage and storage. The second day will delve into 1D river modeling and integrated 1D/2D modeling.

Innovyze Workshops cater to a variety of skill levels. However, to make the best use of class time it is recommended that anyone who attends a training go through the Getting Started Manual for XPSWMM/XPStorm. This requires access to a license of the software. If you do not have access to a license, please contact your representative.

Attendance at this workshop will provide a certificate of completion for 7 Professional Development Hours per day.
