  • Development of water resource management plans
  • Risk management for floods and droughts 

 
Hydro-BID includes several modules that make it more powerful and versatile:

  • Reservoir management and general water allocation capabilities
  • Simulation of groundwater resources using MODFLOW
  • Forecasting changes in sediment transport in surface flows 
  • Economic analysis modules
  • Water permits modelling
  • Water quality
