Workshops

AQUA TERRA conducts workshops around the globe to train individuals and organizations on the use of the Hydrological Simulation Program - FORTRAN (HSPF), the Better Assessment Science Integrating Point and Nonpoint Sources (BASINS), and other model tools and techniques. Workshops are customized to meet the technical needs of the attendees.

Recent and Upcoming Workshops:

In 2016, AQUA TERRA Consultants is organizing a BASINS/HSPF Training Workshop. The workshop will span 4.5 days and focus on hydrology and water quality.

A sample schedule for the workshops.

The details of workshop date and location are as follows:

Workshop Location and Dates:

September 26-30, 2016: This workshop will be conducted at the King County Department of Natural Offices in Seattle, WA Office. The registration closes on July 31, 2016.

Instructors:

  1. Mr. Tony Donigian is a Principal Consultant at RESPEC, and is a lead developer of HSPF. Mr. Donigian has provided BASINS/HSPF training for the past 30 years.
  2. Mr. Brian Bicknell is a senior modeler at RESPEC, and is also the lead developer of HSPF. Mr. Bicknell has provided BASINS/HSPF training for the past 20 years.
  3. Dr. Anurag Mishra is a Senior Environmental Engineer at RESPEC with more than a decade of experience in hydrology and surface water quality modeling, and geographic information systems. Dr. Mishra has provided BASINS/HSPF training for the past 6 years.

Registration and Fees:

The attendance cost of the workshop is $2,500. A 20% early bird discount (i.e. the registration fee will be $2,000) is available for registration and payments received by June 30, 2016. To register for the workshop, please email Anurag Mishra (Anurag.mishra@respec.com), with a short note about your experience and interest in watershed modeling.

Please make checks payable to “RESPEC Consulting and Services.” Registration costs are non-refundable.

Locations where AQUA TERRA Consultants have offered a BASINS/HSPF Workshop in the past.

Examples of an HSPF Workshop Syllabus:

Training on the use of the Hydrological Simulation Program - FORTRAN (HSPF) is available for students, engineers, scientists, and planners in water resources and water quality management. Topics addressed in the workshops typically include HSPF background and development, simulation algorithms, data needs, data management capabilities, and a thorough examination of the HSPF application process. This latter topic covers development of a modeling strategy, types and sources of data needed, identification and development of critical model parameters, the model calibration/verification process, evaluation of management alternatives, and interpretation of results.
