British Columbia’s Partnership for Water Sustainability and the United States Urban Watersheds Research Institute have an agreement to collaborate: "The Water Balance Model’s QUALHYMO engine is now linkable with SWMM," stated Jim Dumont, the Partnership’s Engineering Applications Authority
The agreement is to collaborate regarding reciprocal benefits and joint actions related to water resources research and practice in North America. The focal point for cross-border collaboration is the new US-based Center for Infrastructure Modelling & Management, the new home for SWMM. “Tools like SWMM and QUALHYMO can enable the hydrologic computations; it is up to us to recognize the need, and to deliver tools that facilitate the analysis. I expect that discussions about methodology will be as much a part of the Centre as the development of new code,” states Jim Dumont.
