DENVER, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CH2M will officially launch its new Flood Cloud service on June 6, allowing users of Flood Modeller and integrated software, TUFLOW, to seamlessly undertake flood risk modelling in the cloud for the first time.

CH2M's Flood Cloud is powered by Parallel Works and runs on Amazon Web Services to provide the on-demand computational resource required to deliver quicker results and improved flooding information. It helps to provide more scenarios to enable smarter flood management decisions and improved confidence in model results.

In line with the release of Flood Cloud, CH2M is offering a free, 45-minute webinar on June 6 to walk users through the basics of how to best use the new service to:

  • Enhance flood models.
  • Run more scenarios to enable better flood management decisions.
