• Hydraulic and hydrologic modeling
  • Watershed analysis and storm drain hydraulic analysis


Clearwater Hydrology (CH) analyzed the potential flooding in the Strawberry Creek system in Berkeley, CA. under various hypothetical rain storm events. For each event, flood runoff amounts and timing were calculated for each source watershed area. Flood runoff was then routed along the Strawberry Creek system, which is composed of both open channel and creek culvert segments. The EPA SWMM model was used to model flow in the creek culverts, while the USACE HEC-RAS and HEC-HMS models were employed to analyze both watershed runoff characteristics and flow in open channels.
