You can edit the polygon boundaries of the Subcatchments in Arc GIS by using the Editor command and either editing the vertices or by using the Reshape Feature Tool to adjust the boundaries or snap to the polygon lines or vertex points.    You should start the editing session by right mouse clickining on the Subcatchment Feature layer

Here is one way to estimate the residence time:
1.       Plot the System Outflow and Storage in the InfoSWMM Report Manager
2.       Click on the Report Button and copy the Outflow and Storage Time Series
3.       Paste to  Excel
4.       Calculate the Residence time as Storage / Outflow and Graph
5.       You will have an understanding of the residence time in your network
6.       If you have a dry weather flow then a hot start file will give a better estimate at the start of the simulation

Innovyze President Receives ACOPNE’s Highest Honor




Innovyze News Flash

Dr. Paul F. Boulos Named Distinguished Diplomate in Navigation Engineering by the ASCE Academy of Coastal, Ocean, Port & Navigation Engineers 


Innovyze President Receives ACOPNE’s Highest Honor

Broomfield, Colorado USA, April 24, 2012 — The Board of Trustees of the Academy of Coastal, Ocean, Port & Navigation Engineers (ACOPNE) has awarded Innovyze President Dr. Paul F. Boulos Distinguished Diplomate status in Navigation Engineering (Dist.D.NE), the academy’s highest honor. As a recipient of this award, Dr. Boulos joins an elite group of 23 diplomates worldwide with this distinction. Dr. Boulos will be presented this signal award at a special induction ceremony and reception to be held during the Dredging 2012 conference in San Diego, California, October 22-25. ACOPNE is an affiliate of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Dredging 2012 is a four-day technical specialty conference organized by PIANC USA and the Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute of American Society of Civil Engineers (COPRI ASCE).

Dr. Boulos is one of the world’s foremost experts on water resources and navigation engineering. He has won numerous industry honors, including notable technical awards from ASCE, the American Water Works Association and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and was inducted into the University of Kentucky College of Engineering Hall of Distinction, the most prestigious honor given by the university to its alumni. His publications include nine authoritative books and more than 100 scholarly papers. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (F.ASCE), a Board Certified Environmental Engineer (by eminence) of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers (BCEEM), and an Honorary Diplomate of Water Resources Engineering (Hon.D.WRE) of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers (AAWRE), the academy’s highest honor. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in General Science from the Lebanese American University (Beirut, Lebanon) and was named the university’s 2008 Alumnus of the Year for his extraordinary professional achievement. Dr. Boulos also received a Doctorate, Master of Science and Bachelor of Science with distinction in Civil Engineering from the University of Kentucky in Lexington and has completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School.
“I am deeply humbled and honored to be selected for this distinguished award,” said Boulos. “I am so proud to be a part of this noble and great profession and to be able to contribute to its advancement. It’s truly a privilege to receive such special recognition for doing something I deeply love and enjoy — especially when it comes from the men and women I most admire.”
Diplomate status credential recognizes an advanced expertise in the practice of Coastal, Ocean, Port & Navigation Engineering (COPNE). Navigation engineering involves the life cycle planning, design, construction, operation and life maintenance of safe, secure, reliable, efficient and environmentally sustainable navigable waterways (channels, structures and support systems) used to move people and goods by waterborne vessels. Distinguished Diplomate status, ACOPNE’s highest honor, is awarded exclusively to those who have made significant contributions to the COPNE profession. To date, only 23 engineers and practitioners worldwide (eight in navigation engineering) have earned this distinction, a tribute to their exceptional technical and professional leadership within the COPNE community.
“We are proud to honor Dr. Boulos for his eminence, commitment and exceptional contributions to the profession,” said Michael A. Ports, PE, PH, D.WRE, D.NE, BCEE, Principal of Ports Engineering in Jacksonville, Florida, and President of ACOPNE. “He has distinguished himself professionally amongst his peers and demonstrates the characteristics of a role model to his fellow engineers and to the members of the community. We thank and congratulate him for his lifetime of achievements, tireless efforts, and advocacy for the advancement of research and best practices in navigation engineering.”

The Pump summary table of SWMM5.0.022 and the Percent Time off Columns

by dickinsonre
Subject:  The Pump summary table of SWMM5.0.022 and the Percent Time off Columns
The pump summary table at the end of the SWMM 5 report file has two columns for the time off the pump curve BUT the two columns are only informative if the pump is a type 4pump.  If the pump type is 1, 2 or 3 then the low column is always 0 and when the volume, depth or head is either below the lowest point in the point curve or above the highest point in the pump curve the pump summary table lists the time off either low or high in the High column.
xMin is  the 1st point in the pump curve for either volume, depth, head or depth, respectively for pump1, pump2, pump3 and pump4 type pumps
xMax is the last point in the pump curve for either volume, depth, head or depth, respectively for pump1, pump2, pump3 and pump4 type pumps
