WinDes gets legislation-savvy

Flood software specialist Micro Drainage has released a new upgrade to its WinDes software, to comply with new flooding and surface water legislative requirements.

WinDes has been upgraded to incorporate extensive new functions, to address emerging industry requirements.

“It has become increasingly evident that there is now a fundamental requirement to integrate hydraulics with hydrology,” said Micro Drainage.

“This need has been validated with publication of the EU Floods Directive (2009) and the consequential local legislation.

“To satisfy the latest legislative requirements WinDes W.12.6 now includes a range of drainage area planning capabilities to enable existing drainage systems to be imported, analysed and enhanced with sustainable urban drainage systems (Suds) solutions.

“This is invaluable when working on either the asset management plan (AMP) framework or surface water management plans.”

The software now allows “super-storms” to be generated to analyse drainage systems and sub-catchments for worst case scenarios, and can verify measured flows and gauged data with the computer model.

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is a new feature that can import the location of underground utilities to detect potential crossings and conflicts. A Greenfield Runoff Volume Calculator is also now available.
