Intermediate Hydraulic Modeling for Water Utility Distribution Systems

Intermediate Hydraulic Modeling for Water Utility Distribution Systems

March 30-31, 2023 | Online :: Central Time

Building on the core principles discussed in the Introduction to Hydraulic Modeling for Water Utility Distribution Systems course, this advanced training will focus on the Optimization of Hydraulic Model for Water Distribution Systems. Through hands-on exercises and group discussions, attendees will enhance their understanding of the following key industry topics:

  • Operational modeling including the use of SCADA
  • Outage and emergency analysis
  • Water quality control and conveyance

Instructor

Michael Assante, Assistant General Manager – Special Districts (Shea Properties) Class A/4 Water Treatment & Distribution Operator

Michael has served multiple roles over the past 13 years across the Water Utility space that have provided a well-rounded understanding of the intersection of Hydraulic Modelling and Utility Operations. His background and specialties involve hydraulic modeling of distribution systems, pumping system operations and optimization, utility operations management and capital project management. This experience has involved significant time spent working in the following spaces: engineering consultancy, public water system operations and management roles, and private water system operations and management roles.

Michael’s hydraulic modeling experience has involved model development, calibration/validation and maintenance for multiple national and international utility operations that ranged from 1,000 – 1.5 million customers and have included model development in the following platforms: KY Pipe, EPA-NET, Innovyze InfoWater and Bentley WaterGEMS. His modeling efforts have included investigations involving hydraulic transient (water hammer) analysis, capital project planning and optimization, water quality trace analyses, pumping system optimization and unidirectional flushing operations planning.

Michael is passionate about bringing forward the value of hydraulic modeling in improving utility operations and communicating the value of hydraulic modeling in a palatable and easy-to-digest manner that illustrates its value across multiple areas of a utility operation.
