A hydraulic modeling software product line that addresses water supply, distribution, collection and river systems has been upgraded with a new version that includes geographic locating and zoom tools and extended management of underlying map layers.

InfoWorks v4.5 from Wallingford Software Ltd., Fort Worth, Texas, comes in three modules–WS for water supply, CS for wastewater, sanitary and storm water systems, and RS for river catchments. It is designed to enhance collaboration between modeling teams through common software functionality across the different water disciplines.

Enhancements within the water supply module include new tools to analyze efficiency of pump stations and others to extend programmable controls. Validation tools also have been added to improve model quality.

New stormwater tools improve sediment and erosion data, while the river module includes new water qual-ity and sediment transport models. More detail is at www.wallingfordsoftware.com.
