When running a Design scenario in StormCAD or SewerCAD, the minimum cover is not reached, even though it appears that a lower cover value should be allowed based on the design priorities.


Improvements have been made in the latest release of StormCAD and SewerCAD so that the design solver better solves for the minimum allowable cover by checking shallower slopes to see if viable solutions can be found while still satisfying the design priorities. These improvements can be found in StormCAD and SewerCAD V8i SELECTseries 4 (with the latest patch) or later.
