Hydro-BID is a powerful tool that can be used for:

  • Water balance and flows calculations at regional, basin or sub-basin scales
  • Forecast climate change effects on the availability and variability of water resources
  • Development of water resource management plans
  • Risk management for floods and droughts 

 
Hydro-BID will include several new modules that make it more powerful and versatile:

  • Reservoir management and general water allocation capabilities
  • Simulation of groundwater resources
  • Forecasting changes in water quality attributable to changes in surface flows (sediment transport)
  • Economic analysis modules
