Can you believe it? We’ve been publishing Water Drop workflow videos for a full year. What started as a trickle is now an April downpour. We’ve now created over 40 videos in our Water Drop Workflows playlist, and we’re open to suggestions if you have a workflow you want to learn about. Let us know in the survey at the bottom of the page.

Create a basic InfoWorks WS Pro model from a simple CAD .dwg file with Hunter Sparks

Municipalities and consultants often possess valuable AutoCAD and Civil 3D drawings representing their water distribution system. However, without compatible modeling software, leveraging this data can be inefficient. This video demonstrates leveraging Civil 3D drawings and WS Pro tools for a simple model build.

Ponding Modeling Basics in InfoDrainage with Midori Patterson

Sizing detention facilities and their associated outlet structures is an integral piece of stormwater design for land development projects. You need to ensure an acceptable discharge rate to downstream waterways and for water quality purposes. This video will take a deeper dive into how to actually add a pond in InfoDrainage and use the purpose-built design tools such as sizing calculators, phase management, and comparison reports to streamline traditional drainage design workflows.

Locate sewer laterals using your CCTV data with Info360 Asset with Tim Medearis

Sometimes, CCTV inspections for sewer lines are stored in formats not fit for spatial analysis. Tabular data and media are very limited formats for field crews or operators looking to locate and potentially excavate without disturbing sewer infrastructure while out in the field. Info360 Asset and Esri Dashboards can help you fix this problem by converting tabular information to spatial data to help field crews avoid million dollar mishaps. Learn how in this short video.

More RTC tips in InfoWorks ICM with Ryan Brown

In this video, we continue to build on some of our previous videos by setting up two RTC controls. The first controls the release of water from tanks using orifices and pumps. The second is about controlling the release from tanks using a proportional integral derivative (PID) RTC.
