Hydrological modeling for the re-design of the contribution dams in the Putucuni and Viscachas basins - Misicuni Multiple Project

The Misicuni dam, since it is already in operation, has already started to store water in a first phase. In a second stage of the project, the availability of water resources in the Putucuni and Viscachas basins is planned, which are contributors to the main basin through transfers.

For this, it is planned to update and validate the hydrological model, which will generate an understanding and management of these hydrological resources, in future works to be developed in the area.

The hydrological model adopted is HEC-1, a deterministic type unitary hydrological model which uses the Clark Unitary Hydrograph as a basis.

With the finished digital hydrological model, with the use of the HEC-HMS program as the main design tool and secondary programs such as ArcMap 10.3, a comparison of results can be obtained with the use of GBHM.

The specific objectives will then be resumed to accomplish the objectives that are necessary to complete the objective:

To have the necessary data for the corresponding hydrological analysis of the basins and their corresponding verification.
Have a comparative study of the two hydrological models carried out.
Calibrate and Validate the hydrological model That fits the model adopted.
How to use the hydrological model used and the data obtained for a re-design analysis in the Putucuni and Viscachas retention damsThis project is specifically elaborated with the Misicuni Company and its estimated period is from January 2017 to December 2018.
