Session One: Watershed modeling for extreme weather inflow Ground and Stormwater.

Introduction by Dendra Best. WasteWater Education Executive Director.

Dr. Naomi Detenbeck

Web based resources and access links shown during this presentation can be viewed here.

Dr. Detenbeck currently works in EPA’s Office of Research and Development, Atlantic Coastal and Environmental Sciences Division, overseeing projects to evaluate the most cost-effective management approaches to meet water quantity and quality goals at the scale of small watersheds and regional basins under changing climate and land-use conditions.
She is project lead for e-Estuary and oversees the development of WMOST and the regional optimization support tool.
The Watershed Management Optimization Support Tool (WMOST) allows water-resource managers and planners to screen a wide range of practices for cost-effectiveness in achieving watershed or water utilities management goals, such as meeting projected water demand and minimum and maximum in-stream ecological flow targets.
See for an overview and for download of tools, user guides, and theoretical documentation.
WMOST allows evaluation of over twenty potential management practices and goals related to water supply (demand management practices, surface and groundwater pumping, surface water storage, water treatment plant, potable distribution system leak repair), wastewater (septic systems, wastewater treatment plant, infiltration repair in wastewater collection system), nonpotable water reuse (wastewater reuse facility, nonpotable distribution system), aquifer storage and recharge, interbasin transfer of water and wastewater, land conservation and up to fifteen stormwater management practices including traditional, green infrastructure and LID practices, minimum human demand, and minimum and maximum in-stream flow targets.
