In November 2009, the British Columbia Inter-Governmental Partnership (BCIGP) and the Alberta Low Impact Development Partnership (ALIDP) jointly released a blueprint document titled Water Balance Model for Canada – The Plan for the Future (i.e. the Plan).
“The Water Balance Model differs from other drainage modelling tools in three fundamental ways: it is web-based; development is driven by the community of users; and it can help create a vision of the future watershed,” states Richard Boase, BCIGP Co-Chair.
“The community of users has been asking for a technical manual that documents the intelligent interface that translates user information into data used by the QUALHYMO engine. Under a federal/provincial agreement with British Columbia, the RAC program has provided funding for manual development.”
