How can a Subsurface Utilities model be updated with changes that are made in SewerGEMS standalone file?


The information from the Standalone Haestad product is copied over to the DGN file and the information is stored there. Any changes made inside the Subsurface Utilities product will persist in the DGN file and it will update dynamically.


1) Open the .DGN file using any of the hydraulics and hydrology Select Series 5 or CONNECT version standalone products.

2) Update and save the file

3) Open the file in one of the OpenRoads (MX, Power InRoads, Power GEOPAK) SUDA products.

4) Go to the Subsurface Utilities Menu > Tools > Synchronize Drawing...  The file should update.
