OpenFlows PondPack

Detention Pond Analysis and Design Software

Streamlining pond design

From basic site designs to complex drainage studies, effectively model rainfall and runoff from urban and rural watersheds to design detention and retention facilities, outlet structures, and channels.

What is OpenFlows PondPack?

OpenFlows PondPack is a detention pond analysis and design software that helps you improve design productivity and deliver high-quality pond design projects. With an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, it simplifies detention pond design and gives you a robust calculation engine that can handle the complexity of interconnected pond modeling. You can gain increased workflow efficiency and streamline the planning, design, and engineering of your next stormwater system project.

    Streamlined Workflows

    Step-by-step Pond Design

    Follow a step-by-step process to set maximum outflow rate, estimate storage, and check the outlet design and final design. Provides widely accepted processes and easy reporting.

    Interconnected Pond Modeling

    Model complex pond scenarios with confidence, including simulating tidal and tailwater effects in interconnected ponds.

    Multiple Rainfall and Runoff Options

    Easily analyze pre-development vs. post-development conditions for multiple storm events using a variety of runoff methods.

  • OpenFlows PondPack Computer Software Screen Mockup

    performs analysis of all aspects of stormwater systems

    Build And Manage Hydraulic Models

    Jumpstart the model-building process by importing many well-known external data formats, which maximizes ROI on geospatial and engineering data and automates input data generation.

    Design and Analyze Complex Pond Outlet Structures

    Model any combination of flow control devices such as orifices, risers, culverts, weirs, vortex valves, or your own user-defined flow control mechanism through an outlet structure.

    Design and Analyze Pond and Outlets

    Leverage PondMaker’s guiding process through the confusing maze of pond design steps by following the step-by-step process that provides constant feedback on how the design is progressing. Set the maximum outflow rate, estimate storage, and check the outlet design and final design.

    Model Rainfall and Runoff

    Load models with wet weather runoff flows derived from precipitation using the built-in rainfall distributions, or user-defined rainfall events. Runoff flows are computed using the most appropriate runoff method for the project.
