Sustainable Water Resource Management

Hydrology, hydraulics and sediment transport

The Science of Water

Gruner excels in the fields of hydrology, hydraulics and bedload management. Our unique combination of skills enables us to accurately model water flows, design innovative solutions for river management, and ensure the effective management of sediments and materials transported by rivers. In this article, we explore our expertise in depth, focusing on our commitment to integrated water resource management, advanced numerical modelling, hydrological modelling, flood routing, and the management of emergency situations such as dam and penstock failures.

Advanced Digital Modelling: 1D, 2D, 3D, and Coupled Solid Transport

Digital modelling is one of our major strengths. We develop and use advanced models to accurately simulate the behaviour of rivers, lakes and hydrological networks. Our expertise in hydrological modelling enables us to predict changes in water flows, flood levels and runoff in the event of extreme events. In addition, our ability to couple hydrodynamic modelling with solid transport enables us to effectively monitor and manage sediments, debris and materials transported by rivers.


Integrated water resource management: a holistic approach

Integrated water resource management is at the heart of our approach. We understand that water is a precious and complex resource that requires a holistic approach. Gruner works closely with its clients to develop water management strategies that take into account the entire hydrological cycle, from source to discharge into the receiving environment. Our aim is to optimise the use of water while preserving aquatic ecosystems and minimising the risks associated with flooding and scouring.

Flood Routing: Minimising Risk

Gruner develops advanced flood routing systems that accurately predict water flows and flood levels along rivers. These systems play a crucial role in flood preparedness and response, helping to minimise potential damage.

Emergency Management: Dam and Penstock Failures

We use advanced mapping and modelling tools to assess the extent of damage in the event of the failure of hydroelectric generating facilities. We have ministerial approvals enabling us to present Danger Studies (EDD) that can be validated by the instructing services.

Gruner is a recognised leader in the fields of hydrology, hydraulics and sediment management. Our commitment to integrated water resource management, advanced numerical modelling, hydrological modelling, flood routing and emergency management makes us a trusted partner for all water-related issues. We are ready to work with you to develop solutions tailored to your specific water management needs.
