Free Webinar, June 15: Automation Innovations in Stormwater Modeling

Water, storm water, and wastewater utilities and their engineering design and construction partners are under increasing pressure to do more with less, while maintaining the highest level of service and reliability. With aging assets and capital constraints, experts agree that the future of water resources engineering will present challenges unseen by today’s professionals.

CE News and Autodesk have put together an informative 3-part series which address some water industry challenges and solutions, as well as transparency and accountability.

Don't miss the upcoming June 15 webcast: Automation Innovations in Stormwater Modeling
Automation innovations in Autodesk’s recently released water resource engineering software allows civil engineers to more efficiently and economically complete stormwater analysis and design projects. This presentation showcases a stormwater project in which a major engineering firm was able to complete a 30 square mile metropolitan stormwater management plan in half of the time that it would normally have taken. This project incorporated wetlands, ponds, streams, and stormwater pipe and ditch networks, and the stormwater management plan had to accommodate 10 and 100-year storms and comply with city, county, state and federal EPA standards. This project was completed within 5 weeks, using a variety of CAD and GIS source data to construct the model. The final model was turned over to the city stormwater utility department to use on future projects, particularly in evaluating the impact of new developments on existing structures.
