Flow Science is the US distributor of the computer model DYRESM - WQ (DYnamic REservoir Simulation Model - Water Quality), developed by the Centre for Water Research at the University of Western Australia. This program simulates the physical, chemical and biological processes in small to medium sized lakes and reservoirs. The model has been extensively calibrated and verified through field work.
Flow Science has utilized this program in evaluations of water quality improvement schemes for lakes and reservoirs, including hypolimnetic oxygenation systems, mechanical mixers and bubble plume aerators.
We have also performed field and modeling studies to determine the potential of "short-circuiting" in reservoirs, a condition that can lead to undesirably high concentrations of Cryptosporidium and Coliform in the outflow.
