New tool in the Watershare® Suite: UWOT
We are proud to present a new tool in the Watershare® Suite: Urban Water Optioneering Tool (UWOT).
UWOT is a model that simulates the generation and routing of urban water demands to facilitate the planning and assessment of distributed interventions in the urban water cycle. The planning and assessment is based on various metrics estimated by UWOT, such as potable water demand, runoff volume and required energy.
- Assessment of alternative interventions to reduce potable water demand.
- Estimates of energy required by water appliances.
- Evaluation of beneficial uses of runoff and wastewater volumes.
- Evaluation of benefits of green areas (garden, green roof) on urban heat island effect.
