While numerous water supply and stormwater system models existed, the few sanitary sewer models that were readily available were too simplistic for engineering design and master planning purposes. Therefore, a new model, Steady State Sanitary Sewer Simulation (S5), was developed. The gravity flow computations were based on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers FLUSH model, and the pressurized flow computations use an algorithm similar to the KYPIPE water model. System data is input via custom dBase III+ menus, allowing easy entry and manipulation. By coupling the model with the database, the user can easily retrieve information and use the database as a tool for keeping track of maintenance and capital improvement needs.
