Dr Tim Cox, Streamlined Environmental’s Water Resources Modeller, has developed models that address water allocation (SWAM or Simplified Water Allocation Model) and contaminant allocation (CASM or Contaminant Allocation Simulation Model). We are now offering webinars which provide the opportunity for you to learn how these models may be used to manage and account for water resource allocation and contaminant discharge allocation. Webinars will be offered every Tuesday from April 9th to April 30th and will run from 12:15 -1:00 pm with ~35 minutes presentation and 10 minutes for questions on the following schedule:
April 9th – SWAM
April 16th – CASM
April 23rd – SWAM
April 30th – CASM
To attend one or both of these webinars simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred date(s). You will be sent a confirmation email, together with a link to a Zoom video conference (the platform we will be using). If you cannot attend but would like further information, let us know and we’ll make other arrangements.
SWAM calculates physically and legally available water, diversions, storage, consumption, and return flows at user-defined nodes in a networked river system.
SWAM is a Visual Basic program hosted in an Excel computing environment. The user interface consists of a single worksheet with drop-and-drag graphical features for defining and parameterizing a water supply network.

CASM is a catchment modelling tool for simulating both diffuse and point-source pollution at a catchment scale. CASM:
• can simulate a wide range of contaminants;
• includes 3 modes of simulation: deterministic, stochastic, and optimisation;
• can be implemented at multiple scales from large catchments to individual properties;
• allows for easy mitigation investigations;
• fulfils the contaminant accounting requirements of the NPS-FM, but also;
• allows contaminant allocations and trade-offs between users to be explored.
