Snake River Reservoir, WA
Project: Seattle Public Utilities
HFAM models several hydrologic processes based on historical data to assist in the design and the operations of reservoirs. HFAM’s dynamic simulation sets the industry standard giving water resource utilities unprecedented flexibility with comprehensive forecasting data.
Many reservoirs across the United States simulate probable maximum precipitation and probable maximum flood to assist in final spillway decisions.
Forecasting future reservoir releases and future reservoir inflows optimize reservoir operations in matching current water supplies to water demands.
Calculating an accurate firm yield for a reservoir during its design is critical in assuring that a reservoir will meet normal water demands.
