Surface Water Modeling and Assessments
Effective water planning and management requires an accurate assessment of the location and quantity of the water resources of the State, and one of the most useful tools for evaluating management strategies is a computer model that simulates the surface water system throughout an entire watershed. To that end, SCDNR and SCDHEC have begun the process of developing surface-water quantity models for each of the eight major watersheds, or basins, in South Carolina.
A more detailed discussion of the proposed surface water modeling can be found in the document Basinwide Surface Water Modeling in South Carolina PDF, and an overview of each of the eight basins for which the models will be developed can be found in the document Major Basins of South Carolina PDF.
Surface Water Modeling Request for Proposals (RFP)
- SCDNR has prepared a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of surface-water quantity models for each of the State's eight major watersheds.
- The RFP has been reviewed by the SCDNR Technology Development Program and SCDNR Procurement Services is currently (as of January 31, 2014) being reviewed by the SC Budget and Control Board (SCBCB) for further review and approval.
- After approval by SCBCB, the RFP will be available for review by interested parties through the SCDNR Procurement Services website.
