Hi All,
Upper Hunter Shire Council are looking into obtaining a license for water modelling software to complete hydraulic modelling of the water and sewer distribution networks. We currently have partial models built for both systems in Mike + (Formally Mike Urban) by contractors, but the license for it is expensive and finding any training courses on how to use the software also seems difficult. Are there any other councils who hold modelling software licenses and if so who do you use and were you able to find any associated training courses?
Kind Regards,
Tegan Annas

Tegan,
SW utilise Innovyze for our models, the are probably the premium so also very expensive but training can be provided by either Innovyze or Advance Water Solutions who are the software resale outlet.

Hi Tegan,
I am the Networks Engineer at MidCoast Council and work with modelling software for forward planning of Water and Sewer Assets. We currently use WaterGEMS and SewerCAD from Bentley for water and sewer respectively. I have been reviewing other modelling software DHI MIKE+ and Infoworks WS Pro and ICM to make a business case before next renewal. So I have got the technical and cost details for both and also for Bentley products if you are interested. I got a month of free trial for MIKE+ so I can share what I know and share resources and details for the support at DHI Australia. Please get in touch by sending an email at aadesh.baniya@midcoast.nsw.gov.au.
Regards,

Hi Tegan,
Tamworth Regional Council used to have its own reticulation models and train staff in their operation, but we found that, with a Council of our size, we did not have the workload for modelling that allowed staff to maintain skills and knowledge of the models so we started to doubt the accuracy of the results etc.
We now use a consultant to do our modelling work. The consultant maintains our models (we own the licenses) on our behalf, we pay them an annual retainer and whenever we need something modelled we contact them and pay for their staff to run the model and provide the results.
This is working well for us, so may be something you would like to consider.
