Draincalc™ is a software solution designed for drainage assessment professionals to meet everyday requirements of assessing drainage benefit.
Draincalc™ automates the process of identifying land owners who receive benefit of drainage reconstruction and maintenance projects then calculates the corresponding rates. It allows the local drainage professional to select a combination of assessment methods commonly used for calculating each property owner’s benefit of the drainage project.
Draincalc™ applies advanced GIS processes and utilizes ESRI’s ArcGIS as its foundation to provided drainage assessment professionals. The tools quickly and accurately formulate what-if scenarios and calculate the impartial assessment for watershed drainage. Advanced GIS geoprocessing methods are used to compute a parcel area in any given watershed, along with the percentage of total area. Draincalc™ also incorporates the capabilities to include numerous GIS layers which impact drainage assessments, such as building footprints, watersheds, soils, land use, zoning, and impervious surfaces.
In addition to all the analysis functions, Draincalc™ has additional flexibility to generate custom reports and hearing notices for each project. The solution is also designed to integrate with other databases, such as CAMA and/or tax billing databases, to pull the most current property information.
The Draincalc™ design is based on advanced analysis capabilities, flexibility in assessment methodology, and dynamic custom reports, thus making this solution applicable to any drainage assessment project. We listened to the drainage professionals to design a tool that met both today’s drainage assessment needs and the demands for tomorrow.
