In cooperation with Alta consulting and Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Iceland.

EPA's Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) is used throughout the world for planning, analysis, and design related to stormwater runoff, combined and sanitary sewers, and other drainage systems. It can be used to evaluate gray infrastructure stormwater control strategies, such as pipes and storm drains, and is a useful tool for creating cost-effective green/gray hybrid stormwater control solutions. SWMM was developed to help support local, state, and national stormwater management objectives to reduce runoff through infiltration and retention, and to help reduce discharges that cause impairment of waterbodies.

This class is intended for people who have a general knowledge of SuDS and its design according to the CIRIA Manual (see class offered 30.03.2023), but would like to learn about what the open source SWMM model can offer in design. The class starts with an introduction to SWMM and its applications, where participants set up the software on their computer, and design Sustainable Urban drainage Solutions in an example of a residential area, given by the instructor.

In the second half of the class, participants can set up a neighborhood of their interest, and work on designing/ retrofitting with SuDS. Participants can bring their own GIS files if they wish to do so, otherwise the instructor can provide GIS maps to work on.

At the end of the class, there will be a brief discussion of limitations of the model, e.g. with regards to large flooding during rain on snow events as is common in the Capital Region of Reykjavík.

Learning outcomes
Participants understand the working principles and key capabilities of the US EPA SWMM model
Participants can set up a neighborhood in the model and design SuDS elements (LID controls) based on the understanding of SuDS principles
Implement/retrofit SuDS in an area using SWMM
Dr. Tarek Zaqout received a PhD in Environmental Engineering in 2022. His thesis research focused on evaluating the performance of SuDS implemented in Urriðaholt, Garðabær. Tarek holds a Masters in Water Resources Engineering from the University of Stuttgart, and worked at a consultant‘s office in Ditzingen, Germany on urban drainage systems design and implementation in the urban environment including SuDS.
