Ponds Creation Tools is an app that allows the user to analyze different stormwater pond configurations and to find the optimal solution in less time. PondsCreationTools effortlessly generates the pond surface in AutoCAD® Civil 3D® and calculates the maximum storage available based on the user input parameters.
The program can be used to quickly perform the following tasks:
Quick construction of a surface representing the stormwater pond given the pond depth, side slope and a polyline that represents the top of the pond (high water level). This surface can be built considering a slope change in the sides of the pond.
Automatically calculate the capacity of the constructed stormwater pond.
Generate an elevation vs. storage and depth vs. storage tables for the stormwater pond. This can be used to obtain the accumulated storage capacity at different depths and calculate live storage above the permanent pool in wet ponds.
Export the elevation vs. storage and depth vs. storage tables to Microsoft Excel®. Create a plot chart of these tables and copy them to the clipboard.
Create and export a depth-area curve to be used in drainage modeling software such as Autodesk Storm® and Sanitary Analysis, SWMM or PCSWMM.
