HydroCAD Stormwater Modeling - Since 1986


Why use HydroCAD?

HydroCAD is great way for students to learn about common H&H techniques, especially the SCS/NRCS methods including TR-20 and TR-55.  HydroCAD also provides a wide range of additional features including TC calculations, pond storage, pond and reach routing, pollutant loading, and underground storage layout and modeling.   And HydroCAD provides all these capabilities in an easy-to-use interactive format that makes learning fun and effective.  Details here.

How does HydroCAD compare to other H&H programs?

HydroCAD is the superior alternative for any teaching situation involving the SCS/NRCS methods, as well as the Rational method and SBUH procedure.  HydroCAD can be used to replicate these results with great accuracy, while providing many additional features and capabilities.  For details see our comparison chart.
