Hydrological Planning is enabled through additional modules on the Natural Resources and Hydrology core system. The three different modules enable catchment management, Demand analysis and Mass balancing of metered areas as well as simulation of the rainfall-runoff process through an interface to the HEC models.
Hydrological Planning Modules – main features & more information
Hydrological Planning includes the modules listed in the table below.

|EDAMS-Environmental Management Systems (ENV)|
|EDAMS Hydrological Planning|
|ENV-ZONR||Zone Manager (Catchments)||Catchment management tool suitable for Water Affairs departments that can assist in managing, monitoring and controlling catchments.||EDAMS ENV-Natural Resources & Hydrology 1.0|
|ENV-HYDA||Hydrological Demand Analysis/ Balancing||Comparison of irrigation demand with quotas.
Water balancing for all metered areas. Calculates evaporation and infiltration losses.
|ENV-HEC (stand-alone system)||Rainfall-runoff simulation (interface to HEC)||User interface to HEC-HMS, a hydraulic modelling system developed by the U.S. Army corps of engineers, designed to simulate the rainfall-runoff process of dentritic watershed systems|
