WaterNet Advisor CS SWMM

Want to view clear and easy to understand SWMM model results anytime, anywhere? Take this one-hour self-paced course for step-by-step instructions on how to access your SWMM models online using WaterNet Advisor CS SWMM. Learn how to import an EPA SWMM file into the application, run hydraulic simulations and view and share the results from a desktop, phone or tablet using this one-of-a kind application.

First, we’ll walk you through how to create a new project in WaterNet Advisor and import an EPA SWMM file. Next, you’ll then see how to create a new scenario, edit the data and increase the rainfall intensity. Then we’ll run the hydraulic simulation and compare the results with the base simulation. To conclude, you’ll get a peek at some additional features including bookmarks and flow tracing as well as learn how to add shape files and calibration data, modify the settings and access the online user guide for further support.
