My name is Elad Salomons and I’m a water resources engineer. Once in a while I’m asked to recommend a water simulation package (WSP). Usually my answer changes according to the person asking. If it is a student or someone doing academic research I often send him to the EPA web site to download EPANET.
But when it is an engineering firm asking, or a small water utility then I must sit back and think what is the best WSP for the client. What are the needs? Does he need database connectivity, GIS, AutoCAD, asset managementג€¦. and so on.
Since there are more than a few WSPs out there I made a short, and not complete, list of them. This started as one simple web page but I got many positive responses and suggestions to include more information about water related software, so I decided to give it a try and open a bigger web site.
The main page of the site will always show the last entries (AKA ג€postג€) to the site. Each post belongs to one or more categories. You can see that the menu on the right hand side shows a list of categories. For example, the post for EPANET will be a part of the Water Simulation Packages category and the Free software category.
For each post you can place a comment by using the interface just under the post. You don’t have to register or give any personal information.
