Urban design

Pennwell web 300 198

eWater CRC has released Urban Developer, a new tool to support Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM). Initially targeted at lot-to-cluster scale applications, it will ultimately allow urban water managers to compare options for integrated water management ranging in scale from the allotment to the suburb. It is now available in a free beta version. It incorporates all three urban water cycle services – potable, waste and stormwater – within a single framework. It can simulate demand and supply interactions at sub-daily time scales, and can deal with catchment rainfall-runoff responses at a range of scales.

Check valve

Pennwell web 250 304

The CheckMate® Inline Check Valve is ideal for backflow prevention and odor mitigation. In outfalls, stormwater, CSO and SSO applications, the check valve's custom-engineered, all-rubber unibody design eliminates backflow from oceans, rivers and interceptors. Its elastomer fabric-reinforced design provides a proven record of maintenance-free performance, cost savings and results. Another advantage is its extremely low headloss. The valve can open to a near full pipe diameter, maximizing the flow capacity of the outfall.
