Approach and Outcomes
WMS liaised with representatives of the cane farming community in order to identify hot spots and to obtain flood spot heights to enable calibration. WMS also developed a 1D/2D numerically coupled MIKE FLOOD model using a 10 m grid and lateral coupling of 1D drains. During the model development process a near Highest Astronomical Tide and a small flood occurred. WMS was able to use these events to verify model performance. The model was then used to assess the performance of potential drainage upgrades.
