There are a few things I am still trying to figure out. However, the support team has been exceptional. Every time I have a question the support team is quick to respond.
Also, when we first bought the program we made several requests that would enhance the program abilities to accurately model stormwater runoff per our local design requirements.
The latest release of StormNET provided the additional modeling abilities we requested. Kudos to your staff for the follow-up. The main thing that I had missed was the hydrodynamic routing option on the project input tab. I went through the help files on each of the project elements, but apparently missed the analysis options. The helpful follow-up of your staff has increased the chance that we will end up upgrading our license.
Downers Grove, IL www. The simplicity of the Rational Method and complexity of the models in the Northwest are as opposite as you can get. The software allows continuous modeling of multiple storm events and the adaptability to incorporate the standards of the different regions where we work. The biggest benefit is the ability to link detention ponds to each other through a pipe network, and the speed at which StormNET can calculate those changes.
It would take us ages to do it by hand. In seconds, we can change pipe sizing and really fine-tune the model. Having StormNET allows us to increase the accuracy and precision of the design, and reduce the size of the system because the model is closer to actual needs, saving resources and cost. We have found StormNET very useful in quickly comparing different scenarios StormNET has been a wonderful tool for performing storm sewer analysis and design.
The user interface is straight forward and fairly intuitive. For example, we brought in a current ongoing stormwater project during an 8 hour inhouse StormNET training class. By the end of the class, our entire department was comfortable using StormNET for performing storm sewer design and analysis, including channels, pipe flow, and detention basins. Since then, we have used StormNET to confirm older projects, that were originally modeled with other software programs, that needed updating either due to new phases or new development in the watershed.
We have found StormNET very useful in quickly comparing different scenarios and varying conditions for design options. StormNET is being used to support StormNET is being used to support our civil engineering department for both stormwater and sanitary sewer modeling. StormNET for designing storm sewers I will be using StormNET for designing storm sewers and detention basins for subdivisions and commercial sites.

StormNET will greatly enhance our ability to model stormwater and increase our productivity in doing so.
Chris Roberts, Engineering Associate B. My daily responsibilities include that of preparing drainage designs for all projects within the contracting operations of Trinity Housing. Recently we switched our stormwater software to StormNET—a real workhorse. This software is extremely easy to learn and use, and it just "works". We are in the process of adopting StormNET as our first line for design and modeling of pond, storm and sewer projects.
StormNET has been an invaluable tool in evaluating urban hydrology and designing StormNET has been an invaluable tool in evaluating urban hydrology and designing urban conveyance systems on our projects from small scale designs to master planning and more complicated storm routing.
We use StormNET to size storm drains, detention basins, catch basins, and to determine street capacities. Salt Lake City, UT www. I really like the routing I really like the routing and graphical display of data, as well as the export capabilities to MS Excel and Word.
I use StormNET for all my storm sewer design needs. StormNET increased our engineering productivity StormNET increased our engineering productivity by reducing our design time from 4 weeks to 2 days. Very impressed with StormNET Very impressed with StormNET and its capabilities. The software is very intuitive and easy to use. Especially pleased to see that you have provided many different methodologies into one package. We use the Rational Method for hydrology and Papadakis Kazan for determining time of concentration on most of our urban storm drain systems in Phoenix, and sure enough, StormNET has that covered.
StormNET also provides the capability for doing more complex HEC routing, which is needed for our larger watershed studies. I like the graphical representation for the storm drain pipe systems with manholes and depiction of hydraulic and energy grade lines. Not only does this provide a quick look at how the overall proposed system will perform and how to provide the most economical design, but it also provides the type of information that we require to be shown on our storm drain construction plans.
So that we will always have a record of the storm drain designs that we build in case the corresponding drainage study booklet gets lost , we always include one overall plan sheet showing the entire proposed storm drain system, along with the Q's, pipe sizes, manhole locations, and hydraulic and energy grade lines. StormNET automatically provides this information.
It is great to see BOSS International coming out with such great and useful software for storm drain design. I am sure that the many design consultants who prepare designs for the City of Phoenix will be anxious to obtain your software. Very good software, we will be able to use it on upcoming projects for site development, watershed analysis, designing pump stations, water quality, and permit submittals.
Name withheld upon request Southern Company Services, Inc. We can apply this software Enjoyed seeing the ability to compare different hydrology methods. We can apply this software for our hydrology designs for site developments. We just wanted to let you know that we appreciate all your work. We have just run this report for another project we are working on Bethel Christian Fellowship Church and so far, StormNET appears to provide an output that is very good.
The programs simplify the entire process The programs simplify the entire process. The modeler can change design storm with a simple click of the mouse, this saves hours of hand computations.
Dozens of cross sections can be drawn up within hours. An experienced modeler can independently handle long lengths of rivers with ease. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and friendly during our phone conversations in assisting me with technical support. I am a project engineer for a consulting engineering firm in Charleston, West Virginia.
StormNET was extremely helpful in conducting a watershed analysis and doing a stormwater design on a rather large site design project my company just completed.
Chambersburg is only about 3 hours from us. Some people would think we are crazy to drive there just for peaches. But they are so good and we are retired Since Gettysburg is so close and neither of us have been there we decided, Why Not. He just now booked the hotel. We've been getting a lot of info from Trip Advisor. We are still deciding whether to arrange a guided tour or buy a CD at the center and wing it ourselves. DH's nephew lived in Alexandria for four years 3 miles from Mt.
We stayed several times and I yearn to return. It would take me months to scratch the surface of all the places I long to explore. I don't know if DH is up to Washington anymore. His knees and lower back are a real bother to him. He has to stop and rest frequently when walking. It's worth is as it is a lot less walking. Plus, if you're seen most of it, you can just concentrate on the new stuff you may not have seen. I live near enough to go to Gettysburg and Chambersburg.
We dance sometimes in that area square dancing of course. Nothing compares to spending a day or weekend there. It is one beautiful and interesting city. We left home Wednesday morning and traveled Lincoln Highway Rt 30 which isn't the fastest way, but the most scenic and historic. It was an enjoyable ride up and down the mountains, seeing acres of forest and farmland. We would travel for miles with no vehicles in sight. We headed straight to Gettysburg, figuring it would best to buy peaches on our return trip.
We did not plan to see the Eisenhower National Historic Site, may-be next time. Thursday we started our day by going to the museum. The film and cyclorama were moving, almost to tears.
If one is a history buff you could spend hours in the museum alone. We were worried about the weather, but it was sunny, in fact almost too hot. I really admired all the people out on horses, bikes because it was 89 degrees. The self guided audio tour was our best option. We were able to stop at leisure at different sites which were of interest to us. The bus tour was attractive, but would have been difficult for DH in having to get on and off the bus frequently.
We did get turned around a couple of times, but the layout was excellent. I picked up a fallen acorn and am going to try and get it to sprout as a remembrance. We very much enjoyed it and are considering going again later in the fall. Friday morning we headed home. We stopped at Mr. Eds Elephant Museum and Candy Emporium. There was no way my husband was going to by pass this place. I have never such a variety of candy.
We purchased our peaches there, along with some tomatoes and cukes. I walked out with three. Told my husband we need to come here in the spring for the plants alone as the prices and variety were exceptional. It's someone asks for fun places to visit and then actually follow through!
It sounds like you had a great time all-around. Glad you liked Maplewood! If you want to see endless amazing things, come to the the DC area! I know I sound like a travel agent. I've just lived in Va all of my life.
Over the years I've seen wonderful things about our country's history, etc. If you've never been to Monticello, go there, it's beautiful.
