Upper and Middle Tiete River Basin Mathematical Model

Project Features
Development and dissemination of a three-dimensional hydrodynamic mathematical model of water quality in the Tiete River, a major source of water supply which crosses the State of Sao Paulo and receives most of the sewage generated by the densely populated Sao Paulo Metropolitan Region affecting the water quality of the Billings and Barra Bonita reservoirs and endangering the health of 8 million residents; improvement of local institutions’ management of water resources through the use of open-source and user friendly applications and technologies; technology transfer and training for system owners and users to improve user participation

Scope of Services
Selection of model and design including identification, analysis and reconciliation of existing models; preliminary calibration including assembly and consolidation of the database; monitoring of hydraulic and hydrological data; intensive monitoring of water quality; quantification of pollution loads to a degree of qualitative and quantitative discreteness compatible with that of the model; training in mathematical modeling of water quality in rivers and reservoirs; training in the use of the selected model, databank, and interface for visualization of the results
