Why use InfoWorks ICM?
Single quality platform
Purpose-built to provide comprehensive solutions to water issues.
Reliable and fast
Minimise project downtime from otherwise lengthy simulations.
Experience a truly collaborative approach in the technical workspace.
Protects people and environments
Stay informed about forecast network response to allow flood prevention.
What you can do with InfoWorks ICM
Deliver quality with one platform
Create or import a project in InfoWorks ICM, with simulation solvers in one place. Integrated catchment modeling (ICM) and stormwater management model (SWMM)-based hydraulic assessments allow for rich simulation of rivers, sewer systems, runoff calculations, and overland flooding.
Save time on projects
Increase collaboration and reduce project downtime with fast simulations so you can make clear and decisive engineering decisions. Streamline model building and data entry to free up time for interpreting results.
Plan for the future: Improve flood risk protection
Quickly delve into complex infrastructure challenges and return with comprehensive understanding and solutions. Explain water issues to your community and provide them with mitigation plans and confidence in your decisions.

2D boundary objects for SWMM
All 2D Zone boundary types (vertical wall, critical condition, supercritical condition, dry condition, or normal condition) are available for 2D boundary lines as well as additional boundary line types of Inflow, Level, or Level & Head/Discharge.
Head unit flow objects
A Head unit flow object is now available for SWMM networks. This enables a 2D boundary object whose boundary line type property is set to Level & Head/Discharge to be associated with a head unit flow table.
Depth varying Manning’s roughness
The option to include roughness definitions implemented in 2021.4 has now been extended to SWMM networks. This lets you better define ground conditions and calibrate models to different flow conditions.
2D boundary types for SWMM models
SWMM networks now have the same boundary type options for 2D Zones as the InfoWorks Networks. These options include vertical wall, normal conditions, critical, subcritical, and dry.
Workgroup model management
Teams can work together in a shared space to create unified models that are complete and accurate.
Integrated 1D and 2D modeling
Model 1D hydrodynamic simulations and 2D simulations in urban environments and river floodplains.
Powerful hydraulic simulation
Fast, robust, stable, and efficient dynamic simulation engine offers accurate representation.
Using GPUs can speed up simulations 12 times or more with large models.
Prepare for events
Address sanitary sewer overflows and combined sewer overflows through emergency storm simulations.
Live operational support
InfoWorks ICM allows any live data to be used within the background of a comprehensive utility network model.
Run models accurately with built-in inferencing tools that fill in missing elements from raw survey data.
SQL and other scripts
SQL queries and Ruby Scripts automate processes such as creating new scenarios, saving you time.
NOAA Rainfall Generator
The new NOAA ATLAS 14 Rainfall Generator can be used to download data from the NOAA’s Precipitation Frequency Data Server (PFDS) to generate NOAA Atlas 14 precipitation frequency estimates for specified locations within the United States.
The RAFTS Australian hydraulic routing method links directly with the ARR data hub and Australian BOM.
