Client: Edwards Aquifer Authority, San Antonio, TX and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth, TX
Clear Creek Solutions provided hydrologic modeling services to the Edwards Aquifer Authority of San Antonio, Texas including:
- Computation of recharge to the Edwards Aquifer.
- Comparison of recharge estimates based on different precipitation data sources.
- Reviewing and analyzing results.
- Creating a Windows-version of HSPF for the nine major basins that cross the Edwards Aquifer.
Process and Solution
Comparative analyses were made to determine the preferred precipitation data set for the model.
The comparative analyses focused on the computation of recharge using the National Weather Service (NWS) precipitation data as well as the NEXRAD radar data.
For the NWS data, we augmented precipitation with the Authority's Real-Time Network hourly precipitation data where needed
