Case study

LAN: Mapping flash flood alley with InfoWorks ICM

Lockwood, Andrews, and Newman Inc. (LAN) used the power of InfoWorks ICM to build a digital twin model of regional catchments in the City of San Marcos. With it, LAN quickly identified and addressed high-risk areas and gained buy-in for holistic solutions.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What is Autodesk InfoWorks ICM used for?

Autodesk InfoWorks ICM is an advanced integrated catchment modelling software. It allows small utilities and large enterprise organisations to model complex hydraulic and hydrologic network elements quickly, accurately and collaboratively. Autodesk InfoWorks ICM helps you plan for capacity improvements, system expansions and emergency scenarios for water and wastewater professionals.

Who uses Autodesk InfoWorks ICM?

Sewer and stormwater engineers, planners, project managers and consultants use Autodesk InfoWorks ICM to face evolving challenges driven by regulations, level of service, customers, environment and operations. By building accurate and holistic models, we’re able to predict how a system will respond to varying conditions. This allows you to better respond, plan and fulfil the needs of your community. Plus, you can do it all using an industry-trusted, cross-team solution.

How can you use ICM to deal with the water in your service area today, while planning for tomorrow?

Organisations dealing with stormwater, flooding and sewers face a complex mix of requirements, including the need to:

  • Keep networks running reliably
  • Cope with aging assets, growth and climate change
  • Reduce sanitary and combined sewer overflows (SSOs and CSOs)
  • Limit preventable flooding
  • Meet changing customer service, environmental, financial and regulatory targets under increased scrutiny
  • Mitigate risks
  • Communicate effectively
  • Make defensible decisions and action plans
  • Use resources wisely

Which operating system does Autodesk InfoWorks ICM run on? 

InfoWorks ICM runs on Microsoft® Windows®. See InfoWorks ICM system requirements (US Site) for details.

Which versions of InfoWorks ICM can I use if I subscribe to the current version?

Your InfoWorks ICM subscription gives you access to install and use the three previous versions. Available downloads are listed in your Autodesk Account after subscribing. See also previous releases available for subscribers.

Can I install InfoWorks ICM on multiple computers?
