Germantown Flood Relief

Dawood’s GIS team has been involved in the Philadelphia Water Department’s Storm Relief and Flooding Mitigation project for the Germantown area of Philadelphia being led by Jacobs. Dawood’s team created automated geoprocessing workflows for use in the computer modeling of the Wingohocking sewer system. This hydrologic and hydraulic analysis established baseline models to simulate the baseline conditions and develop mitigation options. Dawood’s GIS team provided support to the project team by creating web-based mapping, which served as a central repository of project specific data highlighting the alternatives being proposed to remedy the basement flooding. In addition, Dawood’s GIS team supported the final stages of this project by creating various figures and exhibits representing alternative solutions and geotechnical investigations.
