SewerGEMS

SewerGEMS streamlines the modeling process, so that you have more time for solving wastewater engineering problems, such as improving capacity and limiting sewer overflows, which ultimately enable utilities to comply with sewer regulations set by regulatory agencies.

 

For more than three decades, SewerGEMS has provided utilities and wastewater professionals like you with advanced engineering tools to plan, design, maintain, and operate sanitary and combined sewer systems, including: 

 

Engineering decision guidance tools: Leverage SewerGEMS’ what-if scenario management tools to gain a better understanding of the behavior of your wastewater system, improving decision making and response time.

   

Improved model accuracy: A well calibrated model decreases the risks of making poor decisions by ensuring that the model uses the best available data. SewerGEMS calibration tools such as SCADA integration enable you to rely on your model results. 

   

Increased information mobility: SewerGEMS’ full GIS, CAD, and SCADA interoperability enables the cost-effective sharing and flow of information between utilities’ design, engineering, GIS, and operation departments, and their consultants. You can leverage the data that the utility invested in once and reuse across departments.

 

SewerGEMS is a superset of SewerCAD.

Capabilities 

 

Design stormwater systems 

   
 

Minimize capital investments by simply entering your design restrictions: velocities, slopes, cover depths, and pipe and inlet matching offsets. The software product recommends the most cost-effective pipe sizes and invert elevations, avoiding unnecessary pipe trench excavation, while meeting design restrictions.​

   

Design and analyze culverts 

   
 

Select from a library of standard culvert shapes, materials, and entrance conditions, then compute culvert headwater and tailwater elevations using calculation methodologies outlined in Hydraulic Design Series Number 5 from the U.S. Federal Highway Administration. 

   

Design and analyze pond and outlets 

   
 

Leverage PondMaker's guiding process through the confusing maze of pond design steps by following the step-by-step process that provides constant feedback on how the design is progressing. Set the maximum outflow rate, estimate storage, and check the outlet design and final design.​

   

Design and analyze low impact development controls 

   
 

Model the effect that low impact development controls have in retaining runoff before it enters the stormwater system.​​

   

Allocate and estimate stormwater loads 

   
 

Load models with wet weather runoff flows derived from precipitation using the built-in rainfall distributions or user-defined rainfall events. Runoff flows are computed using the most appropriate runoff method for the project.​​

   

Analyze hydraulics and combined sewer overflows 

   
 

Easily switch among multiple solvers according to the type of system you are analyzing: Saint Venant equations, convex/gradually varied flow solver (steady-state analysis for extreme flow conditions and extended period simulations), and rational/gradually varied flow solver.​

   

Analyze inlet capacities 

   
 

Calculate the proportion of stormwater runoff that will enter an inlet versus the proportion that will be carried downstream in a gutter or pond on the road surface. Quickly confirm that the spread of flow in a gutter doesn't exceed design requirements.​

   

Build and manage hydraulic models 

   
 

Jumpstart the model-building process and manage your model effectively, so that you can focus on making the best engineering decisions. Leverage and import virtually any external data format, which maximizes ROI on geospatial and engineering data, and automate terrain extraction and node allocation.​
