Oldcastle Precast's Storm Capture System Now Available For Modeling With HydroCAD's Chamber Wizard

Oldcastle Precast, a leading provider of stormwater management solutions in the United States, announced its cooperative marketing agreement with HydroCAD Software Solutions, the largest dedicated supplier of hydrology & hydraulics software worldwide.

HydroCAD has incorporated Oldcastle Precast's concrete Storm Capture Module System into their software, which is a computer-aided design tool used by civil engineers, starting with version "HydroCAD 10.00 build 11". Storm Capture, a total stormwater management system, has many solutions for detention, retention, treatment and harvesting that involve a combination of many parts designed to solve for storm water management needs.

Storm Capture stormwater chambers can be easily modeled with HydroCAD’s stormwater modeling system, allowing simplified calculation of the system’s storage and infiltration behavior. The HydroCAD Chamber Wizard also performs automated system layouts and simplifies the process of designing a Storm Capture Module system while meeting specific storage and footprint requirements.
