The EPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) is a popular, open source, hydrology and 1D modeling system. SWMM is used worldwide and has been embedded in many different modeling platforms using its flexible API.

EPA SWMM has its own GUI but oftentimes people would prefer to work within a GIS system. The TUFLOW plugin in the free GIS application QGIS converts SWMM project (inp) files to a GeoPackage representations and includes useful tools for checking and fixing the model representation. Once in a GeoPackage representation, the model can be viewed and modified within any GIS application. The modified model can be exported back to a SWMM project file and simulated using SWMM. Additionally, the plugin tools can be used to prepare a model to run using TUFLOW-SWMM which provides linking to a fully 2D solver and value-added benefits.
