American Water Resources Association Presentation

Paul Craig, President of DSI, gave a presentation on Habitat Modeling at a dinner meeting for the Washington Section. Mr Craig demonstrated tools for supporting efforts to mitigate the impact of human development on fish habitat through enhancements to the physical habitat such as changes in substrate type and flow patterns.

McClelland Lake Wetland Complex Study

DSI is supporting Suncor and Hatfield to develop an EFDC model that is integrated with a HydroGeoSphere ground water model of the McClelland Lake Wetland Complex in Alberta, Canada. The goal is to develop a surface water model to represent the transport and fate of WQ constituents along the fen and into the lake.

EEMS8.4 Out Now

The latest EFDC_Explorer Modeling System has been released, with EE8.4, EFDC+ and CVLGrid1.1 in one package. This update to DSI’s hydrodynamic, sediment transport and WQ modeling tool comes with many enhancements, including new habitat analysis tools (IFIM) and time and rule controlled hydraulic structures. A free Demo version is available for download.

Little Bow River Water Quality Study

DSI recently successfully completed the study for a hydrodynamic and water quality model of the upper Little Bow River main stem, the Twin Valley Reservoir, and its tributary Mosquito Creek. DSI used EFDC for the set-up, calibration, validation and implementation of this in-stream water quality model for Alberta Environment and Parks.
