The projects ongoing in 2000 and to begin in 2001 are listed in the "Status of Planning Projects" table. The master planning workload continues to grow and shows no sign of letting up. In 2000 we added 6 new projects and completed only 4. In 2001 we will begin 6 new planning projects and hope to complete 6.
We have been converting and upgrading the CUHP and UDSWM software. The latest versions of each may be downloaded free of charge from our web page (www.udfcd.org). Both now run totally under the Windows system and both have improved data input user interfaces (i.e., fewer errors). We will continue work on both to enhance output management, including links to spreadsheet graphics features. User manuals will also be added to the downloads.
Under an ongoing agreement, Computer Software Library, Inc. (P.O. Box 27517, Denver, CO, 80227, Tel. 303-947-3413, FAX 303-985-8882) can provide fee-based support to users needing assistance. In addition, the District entered into a non-exclusive agreement with XP Software to have the CUHP software integrated into their software system (see related article). If you have any suggestions regarding the posted software, please e-mail us your suggestions.
Urban Storm Drainage Criteria Manual
In 2000 we started to update Volumes 1 and 2 of our Manual. Wright Water Engineers, Inc. is the consultant helping us to update and modernize these two volumes. We hope to have the first full draft of the manual available in March of 2001 and have the document ready for distribution by mid-2001. Many of you have contributed your time, details and case studies for which we are very grateful. A complete report on the updating process and acknowledgement of everyones contributions will be in the next issue of this newsletter.
A major new workload is related to the support of the municipalities within the District as they continue to or begin to deal with EPAs and Colorados stormwater regulations. John Doerfer has been helping with this effort and has been doing a great job (See a related article by John Doerfer). We will continue to work with the cities and counties. Anyone needing assistance or staff training can contact John or me. We will try to help you in any way we can.
