Introducing individual Property Connections to your model

Have you ever wanted to add sanitary loads to a sewer model based on individual property data? Perhaps you have loading data provided for customers, or properties and would like to include it for a more detailed hydraulic model.

Starting with the CONNECT Edition of Bentley's storm and sewer products, you can now lay out or import property connection elements to do this. This also provides a visual representation of properties and the ability to inventory, query, etc. The Modelbuilder tool can be used for importing, and the Loadbuilder tool can assign property connections to the nearest element by creating taps and laterals. To learn more, watch this short video and check out the additional sources in the "See Also" section below.

This video covers the following:

  • Importing Property Connection elements and loading data with ModelBuilder.
  • Assign property connection elements to the nearest element by creating taps and laterals.

Applicable products/versions:

  • SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, StormCAD, and CivilStorm CONNECT Edition ( or later.
