UGROW (Urban GROundWater) represents one of the most advanced urban water management tools produced to date and fully integrates all urban water system components including groundwater. It will raise the awareness of the interaction between urban water system components, support management decision-making, and solve a wide range of urban water problems. The model has a sound scientific basis, is computationally efficient, and is supported by outstanding graphics. Developed as part of the sixth Phase of UNESCO's International Hydrological Programme (IHP-IV), UGROW was tested and refined under a range of demanding urban conditions. Book includes UGROW software CD-ROM and instruction manual.
