XPDRAINAGE is ECOcentric drainage for designers

There is a revolution going on in stormwater management. Nowadays, we expect to use rainwater on site for the common good to increase the value of properties, rather than piping it away as quickly as possible. We want to incorporate infiltration, evapotranspiration, harvesting and biodiversity. To support this approach, new design tools are needed.

At XP Solutions, we are enthusiastic about sustainable stormwater management and we have produced XPDRAINAGE to allow you to design Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) intuitively, efficiently and with full professional rigor. It is a unique product that draws on our years of experience in supporting environmental and engineering solutions.


How does XPDRAINAGE help you?


Given the large choice of drainage systems and controls that can be used, green infrastructure design can be complex. However, XPDRAINAGE simplifies the work by walking the user through the entire process, from conceptual design to drainage system sizing to treatment train analysis for both flow and pollutant removal.  The representation and analysis of the treatment train is as realistic as possible to give a real feel for how the design will look and work in practice.


Users can import or create a full range of site data to inform the design, including CAD, DWG and DXF files and geo-referenced images. “Deluge” analyses 2D surfaces to determine main flow paths and ponding areas for the most effective placement of sustainable drainage elements. Storage Estimate and Water Quality calculators provide sizing indicators for detention volume.


Users can create templates for typical drainage elements in XPDRAINAGE to reduce setup time and ensure consistency, storing local information for pollutants, rainfall, drainage systems, inlet specifications and more. Drainage elements can easily be located on the site plan and connected up in the treatment train. The site and drainage design can be reviewed in plan and profile.


The Dynamic Analysis in XPDRAINAGE supports design storms and time series rainfall for detailed hydrologic analysis of flow, volumes and levels throughout the treatment train – and pollutant washoff and removal. Once the design is complete, it can be exported to CAD or other corporate systems.
