Hydrology Report

Hydrology Reports

Before planning and construction activities, it is important that project managers and stakeholders are aware of the condition of the site and nearby areas.

To accomplish this, engineers and project managers should collect information about the project site. The information that can be collected from the project site and nearby areas can help in the decision-making process about project planning, layout and execution. Also, a survey and review of the property in advance can help promote a cost-effective and environmentally-conscious construction project.

To collect information, engineers and project managers may need to obtain some reports that can focus on different aspects of the project site. One such construction-related report that an owner can obtain is a hydrology report.

What is Included in the Hydrology Report?

A hydrology report includes a description of the hydrologic features of the project site, or the area where the building is situated. The collected information is crucial in the planning, designing and actual implementation of the construction project. The office in charge of the drafting of the report is expected to identify, delineate, and record all hydrologic features and depressions like lakes, ponds and wetlands. The information is necessary when it comes to determining the design and pattern of the drainage system.

Depending on actual client requirements, the hydrology report will also assess the risk of flooding in the area. If used for flooding risk assessment, the report can help describe the flooding behaviour and explain to stakeholders why and how flooding will happen. The foundation of a hydrology report focused on flooding is the amount of rainfall and the water level data. To help readers and stakeholders understand the meaning and potential effects of flooding, various technical terms may be used in the report. These technical terms are relevant to floods and flooding mitigation strategies.

To foster a better understanding of the report, the report will be delivered through the use of graphic and narratives. Maps will be used to identify and describe the major conveyance systems and river systems in the area. Smaller water-features in the area may require actual site inspection, and the report will be accompanied by a narrative.
