HDR developed a pump station response time model for Tahoe City Public Utilities District to support prevention of overflows due to pump failures in this critical region next to Lake Tahoe. The results allow the District to plan and predict problems which could otherwise result in a system overflow.
- Understand the limitations traditional models have when predicting time to overflow and how to develop modeling solutions which avoid common pitfalls associated with this analysis.
- Understand what parameters are key inputs to the response time analysis and how to maximize available data.
- Understand how to identify and address errors when developing a response time model, and how those errors can affect the accuracy of the model.
