  • How to use Australian Rainfall and Runoff Guidelines (ARR19) in the latest InfoDrainage 2023.2 release

    The Australian Rainfall and Runoff Guidelines (ARR19) are critical in providing reliable flood risk estimates to ensure infrastructure is designed well to keep communities safe and environments protected.  The addition of ARR19 in the latest release of InfoDrainage means Australian designers, engineers, and planners can streamline their drainage design processes for land development, major infrastructure, […]

  • 10 things you can do in InfoDrainage that you can’t do in MicroDrainage

    With over 35 years of innovation, Microdrainage has done a cracking job of ensuring water professionals across the world deliver accurate and efficient designs and models of surface water and wastewater systems. We took everything we learned over that time to create InfoDrainage, which was released in 2020. This next generation drainage design application has […]

  • Watch the Water Talk: how to be safe, sustainable, and compliant

    This week, we held one of our most-attended Water Talks ever. We talked about new, innovative methods for design and analysis and how water professionals can use them to design sustainable drainage systems that meet the demands of an ever-evolving industry.

  • Upcoming Water Talk: safe, sustainable, compliant drainage design

    Our next Water Talk, Ensure Your Drainage Systems Are Safe, Sustainable and Compliant, will take place this coming Tuesday, November 15th. Municipalities in the United States have different standards for drainage design, and their utilities sometimes struggle to meet them. Join us for a conversation about InfoDrainage. We’ll talk about new, innovative methods for design […]

  • Grad student reimagines Oklahoma City with green infrastructure design using InfoDrainage

    Summary Andrea Tavera, a former University of Oklahoma graduate student, used Innovyze drainage design software to promote LID-based, green infrastructure design in hopes of resolving Oklahoma’s two greatest drainage challenges caused by stormwater runoff: excessive flooding and pollution.  Efficient drainage design A master’s student, Andrea Tavera focused her thesis on the evaluation of Low Impact […]

  • Introduction to InfoDrainage: free learning series

    Are you looking to learn how to get started with InfoDrainage? We’ve created a series of videos for drainage design that is completely free and open to everyone. The course focuses on pipe design, simulation, and results analysis, with a special focus on representing SuDS. If you’ve been a user of the legacy product MicroDrainage, […]

    FSR vs FEH: Which rainfall theory should I use?

    Which rainfall theory should I use when designing and simulating drainage networks for the UK – FSR or FEH? At the support desk for InfoDrainage, we frequently hear this question. For drainage designs to be valid, they have to meet the no-surcharge, no-flood criteria. Pipes have to be sized adequately and effective storage solutions need to be […]

    P3 funding for green infrastructure and how to limit risk

    Public-Private Partnerships (P3) have been a popular funding mechanism for public works projects around the world since the late 80s. More recently, P3 programs have been initiated to help address water quality concerns related to stormwater by providing funding for stormwater retrofits and the development of green infrastructure throughout a municipality, and has become a […]
