The Water Rights Analysis Package (WRAP) is a generalized modeling system for simulating the development, management, allocation, and use of the water resources of a river basin. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Water Availability Modeling (WAM) System consists of WRAP along with input datasets for all of the river basins of Texas.

WRAP may also be applied anywhere in the world with input datasets developed for the particular river/reservoir system of concern. WRAP is used in regional and statewide planning, preparation, and approval of water right permit applications, system operations studies, and various other river/reservoir system management activities.

This two day WRAP Fundamentals Short Course is designed for engineers and scientists employed by water agencies and consulting firms. The training is oriented toward new WRAP users but will also be beneficial for those with past experience who would like to refresh their skills. Lectures, discussions, and computer modeling exercises will cover WRAP monthly time step simulations and output processing, focusing on fundamentals. The objective is for course participants to obtain hands on experience with the modeling system and proficiency with basic water right analyses.

The course registration fee is $800, which includes WRAP manuals, breaks and meals. The class is limited to 10 people on a first come-first serve basis. The course instructor will be Richard Hoffpauir, PhD, PE.

The public domain WRAP software and reference, users, and supplemental manuals are available at
