A preview of the live Q&A session from the original broadcast of this webinar is detailed below.

Part of this case study was a whole climate change report with a multigroup climatologist who basically predicted what the future inputs would be for the city. It was crucial to have two things. One is the most accurate as possible rainstorm predictions and those would immediately include an uncertainty and the other thing is on the resolution of your models of the community and understand that it's an ongoing process. If I stimulated something today, but I built tomorrow I absolutely might have changed the whole propagation of the flooding in my city and more so, I might have even impacted the city next to me. For our case study we have found in multiple occasions that a lot of the flood water that gets to the areas shown in the case study is coming from the city that is adjacent to us, so the flood is basically flowing towards us. It is important to continually update your model and resimulate to know that your community is protected, and you have the highest accuracy of knowledge and therefore you can go forward and plan mitigation strategies

This should be improving with a much more integrated work approach or a more holistic thought where the governance being the research teams, the design teams, maintenance teams would all be working together to get good models for prediction estimates, mitigation, and building. Collaboration is crucial, you need to have climatologists, water supply engineers and structural engineers for different perspectives. Having something that can be used as a proactive approach will help there too.

Integrated catchment modeling software enables you to model complex hydraulic and hydrologic network elements quickly, accurately, and collaboratively so you can improve your stormwater and wastewater planning and management. Capabilities for 1D and 2D modeling, advanced simulation, and robust collaboration enable you to build models that you can trust for planning with confidence.
