  1. Clash detection between pipe networks

    Can wall thicknesses be added to pipes and manholes to check clash detections

  2. Run same return period with multiple climate change allowances

    When running the simulation wizard I would like to be able to run the same return period with multiple climate change allowances to enable a single analysis covering all scenarios. This will avoid needing to adjust inputs & rerunning the network multiple times to cover no CC, upper & lower CC limits.

  3. True Ground Profile on Long Section Exports

    It would be very useful if there was a way for the true ground profile to also be exported on long sections. Currently, when exporting long sections from microdrainage, the true ground levels are only shown at manhole locations and a straight line is used to replicate ground level between the manholes. Could a 3D terrrain file possibly be loaded into microdrainage so that the true ground profile is shown when exporting long sections?

  5. Enable drawnet manhole changes

    Enable the manholes assigned to impermeable areas on drawnet to be changed.
    It is currently not possible to change the manhole when editing a network meaning the areas have to be deleted then recreated. Being able to change the manhole would save a lot of time.

  6. Flood Studies Update: Ireland

    Add support for the Met-Eireann DDF Irish Rainfall Data. The IDF data can be downloaded from a website and automatically uploading this data would be a big time-saver for users in Ireland.

  7. InfoDrainage - Permeable Paving

    It would be useful to have a central granular conveyance trench beneath permeable paving to avoid the need for overly deep sub base beneath the road / drive.

  8. InfoDrainage - level bench in basin/pond configuration

    The sizing calculator in the pond build pop-up enables one side lpe only.
    There are now LLFAs that require level benck of at aleast 1.5 m width after 0.6 m depth in a basin.
    It is currently not possible to use your calculator to establish such basin properties.
    This would be useful.

  9. Exceedance Level in Infodrainage

    It would be good to have an option in underground stormwater controls to have a separate option for exceedance level and Ground Level
    By taking the exceedance level as GL, it makes the Long sections look distorted when in reality it is common for our designs to have circa. 1m+ cover from top of tanks/soakaways etc to ground level.

  10. InfoDrainage - replace stormwater outline with DXF (or other similar file)

    Would be useful to be able to 'replace outline' of a stormwater control by importing a polygon (e.g. DXF, SHP etc), rather than the existing options which are just to redraw in ID only.
    Every project there seems to be need to replace an outline from another drawing (as architechtural desisns evolve). At teh moment have to re-set up the control each time this occurs.

  11. Import/export of asset data to/from CSV

    DSD import/export for MicroDrainage exists but HydroWorks is now dead. A more generic import/export would be beneficial for exchange of information with other drainage simulation packages and with GIS systems for existing networks; something similar to the import/xport functins in ICM would be ideal.

  14. Retain/Lock dummy MH names

    Can we get a function to lock/retain MH numbers, If you have multiple dummy MH's and need to make changes any name you have given to these is lost when renumbering. You then need to go through the whole process again.

  15. Import EPASWMM5 Files

    Importing EPASWMM5 files for US users would help to streamline the transition from SSA (you can export to SWMM5 from SSA)

  16. InfoDrainage - Re-Ordering Tables

    Please can you add an ability to manually adjust the order of Junctions and Connections as the tables quickly become difficult to follow. The automatic re-ordering seems to reset as soon as you make any changes!

  18. Manhole Schedule Numbering

    For MH tables and report outputs, it would be good to have an option to report chronologically, e.g. 1-30.
    I understand it numbers them on the first Manhole built in the model however I think it would make more sense to go from shallowest to deepest, e.g. U/S to D/S. As is quite common in design additional MHs need to be incorporated further into the model due to clashes or change in direction etc, so it would be best if all outputs and MH tables followed the numerical order.

  19. Provide Enhanced Manhole Schedule Details

    It would be great to have the option of providing an additional level of customisable detail which could be configured on MH Schedules.

    As an example including practical details around the cover – contractors want to know and see more from a MH schedule when out on site.

    Examples of details around the type of cover:
    Cover Size
    Opening Size
    Recessed
    Solid Top
    Loading Class

    Currently this level of additional detail is often added manually to MH schedules exported from software.

  20. InfoDrainage - Time of entry to be called time of entry, not time of concentration

    Te has specific meaning in the UK when using the rational method (modified).
    Tc also has speific meaning (Te + sumTf).
    It would be better if the software wants the user to input a Te, that it calls it Te. At the moment it calls the Te Time of concentration, which is very confusing.
