Urban Developer

Urban Developer allows urban water managers to compare integrated water management options, ranging in scale from the allotment to the suburb level.

This next generation software tool from eWater challenges the conventional silo approach to modeling the different streams of the urban water cycle of stormwater, waste water, water supply and re-use options.

MUSIC – model for urban stormwater improvement conceptualisation – is designed to help urban stormwater professionals visualise possible strategies to tackle urban stormwater hydrology and pollution impacts. Since MUSIC was first developed in 2001, the software has been used by thousands of professionals working in private practice and in state, regional and local government agencies throughout Australia.

MUSIC v6 features MUSIC-link, a time-saving feature which pre-loads Council requirements into MUSIC, for use by developers designing stormwater systems, and provides reports for Council staff checking the compliance of stormwater designs. MUSIC v6 also has improved usability and integrates many design calculations previously done outside the software.

Water Quality Analyser is for water managers, scientists and engineers who need to monitor in-stream water quality, estimate pollutant loads, or set future water quality targets.

Aquacycle is a total urban water balance model gaming tool that estimates water demand, stormwater yield, wastewater yield, evaporation, imported water use, stormwater use, and wastewater use for a particular site. It provides a preliminary assessment of the performance of both conventional and innovative water system designs.


MELS (Minimum Energy Loss (MEL) Structures) is a hydraulic design and analysis suite that enables designers to quickly trial several alternative MEL culvert designs, checking for basic structure dimensions and performance under adverse conditions such as high or low flow and sedimentation issues.


CHUTE is a spreadsheet program for the design and analysis of rock chutes. Rock chutes can be employed in the restoration of rivers and channels to stabilise an erosion head or to reduce the overall grade of the channel.
