Blockchain Water Platform has four distinct modules (drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, and groundwater) to effectively plan and manage different water systems. These modules are built on top of freely available open source programs (EPA-NET, EPASWMM, and MOD-FLOW) from the EPA and USGS.
Drinking Water Module
This comprehensive module can be used to predict water movement and water quality within pressurized pipe networks. All the critical elements in the water distribution system (pipes, junctions, storage tanks or reservoirs, pumps and valves) will be easily simulated within our platform. The platform is equipped to run hydraulic and water quality simulations of any size for extended periods of time. This module can also be used for real-time operational forecasting and management of drinking water utility systems.
This comprehensive module can be used to study combined or separate sanitary systems. All the critical elements in the wastewater collection system (pipes, manholes, storage tanks, wet wells, pumps, and valves) could be easily simulated within our platform. The platform comes with extended hydraulic modeling capabilities to route external inflows and infiltration through the collection system and can be used to simulate any system size. This module can also be used for real-time operational forecasting and management of wastewater utility systems.
This module is a comprehensive 1D/2D water collection system modeling platform that can be used to study urban and river catchments. The wastewater and stormwater modules can be combined to study stormwater inflows into wastewater systems.
The stormwater module can represent both closed pipes underground and also above ground open channel networks. This module is fully dynamic hydrology-hydraulic and water quality simulation model, and can be used to create floodplain maps for the entire watershed, as well as for real time flood forecasting and early warning system. In addition, this module comes with numerous tools including low impact development (LID) and green infrastructure tools, which can be used to implement effective capital improvement projects in the urban drainage basin.
This module, a comprehensive 3D groundwater simulation platform, can be used to study groundwater movement, solute transport, variable-density flow (including saltwater), aquifer-system compaction and land subsidence, parameter estimation and groundwater management. It can be combined with other modules to study various interactions between hydrologic cycle.
This module will arm a state’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and other responsible agencies with real-time operational forecasting and management of their groundwater systems. It will automatically identify severely contaminated and depleting groundwater basins and formulate sound remediation/mitigation strategies. Finally, the module will be able to generate an early warning system by identifying quickly depleting and contaminating groundwater basins.
