Stormwater Management & Flood Modeling with XPSWMM & XPSTORM

San Antonio, TX, USA - November 29 - December 1, 2017

Registration sign-in at 8:00AM on the first day
Training from 8:30AM – 5:00PM

Attendance at this workshop will provide a certificate of completion for 7 Professional Development Hours per day, as well as a $500 voucher for new purchases within 90 days of the training (please inquire for details).

About the workshop:

This class will focus on stormwater modeling, starting with basic hydrology and hydraulics on the first day. The second day will provide more in-depth instruction and exercise for advanced stormwater hydrology and Low Impact Development (LID) modeling, as well as other more advanced modeling functions such as dual drainage and storage. The third day will delve into open channel modeling, including integrated 1D/2D modeling.

XP Solutions Workshops cater to a variety of skill levels. However, to make the best use of class time it is recommended that anyone who attends a training go through the Getting Started Manual for xpswmm or xpstorm. This requires access to a license of the software. If you do not have access to a license, please contact your representative.
