Is MIDUSS a hydrology model?
No. MIDUSS brings together many industry accepted hydrologic
models and hydraulic design methodologies into one software
MIDUSS is the yellow dot on the diagram below. Other products on the market are
concentrated at the top - focused on simulation and
MIDUSS is a balance between
hydrologic simulation and drainage design engineering.
We include a lot of hydrologic
models (storm, runoff, infiltration) but
MIDUSS excels at helping you design the best drainage network
to convey your hydrograph.
Since 1984 MIDUSS has been a completely
interactive program. This is critical for the best use of
your time as an engineer.
Interactive means you get to see the results of your design
decision immediately, not even two mouse-clicks later.
Quick feedback lets you make a judgment on the suitability of
the network element. Then you can tweak its performance or
try to reduce the size to save costs. MIDUSS gives you the
time to exercise your talent as an engineer.
With ever present feedback you always know your design has
been optimized before moving downstream. MIDUSS watches
your every move. It makes design suggestions and in most
cases you are presented with an automatic design as a starting point.
Error detection is superb. With nearly 20 years of
feedback from users you are assured that the most strange design
decisions can be trapped and presented back to you for approval.
When you have finished your design with a routine storm, you
can easily test it with a more intense storm. You can
fix up only those design elements that are surcharged.
MIDUSS has lots of hydrology. More than most of the other
products out there.
But if you like your hydrograph generation
program, you can import any kind of hydrograph and take
advantage of MIDUSS's design superiority.
MIDUSS provides incredible engineering
productivity and design
accuracy because it provides a unique blend of simulation models,
design flexibility and user interactivity - all in one system.
- No more unwieldy use of separate simulation and design software
packages. But you can use you own hydrographs (from other
packages) if you wish.
- Better designs through interactivity - you immediately
see the effects of your design decisions.
- A wide variety of hydrologic models are provided to meet with
your regional requirements.
- Use very large catchment areas and route the flow using advanced
routing algorithms built-in.
- Design rooftop and parking lot storage, unique stage-discharge ponds,
underground recharge trenches, channels with complex cross-sections.
Know immediately if the pipe is surcharged.

example showing the type of solution MIDUSS can provide.
MIDUSS has been around since 1984 and offers you the most robust
and well balanced interactive system for the simulation and design of
stormwater management systems.
