The selection equips the city with a comprehensive range of high-performance ArcGIS-centric infrastructure modeling and analysis capabilities to help manage, operate, maintain, and optimize its drinking water infrastructure.

MWH Soft, a global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, announced that the City of Ithaca, New York has switched to MWH Soft InfoWater Suite to better meet its enterprise GIS water system hydraulic modeling and optimization needs. The selection equips the City with a comprehensive range of high-performance ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, California) infrastructure modeling and analysis capabilities to help manage, operate, maintain, and optimize its drinking water infrastructure.

Also known as the Forest City, Ithaca is home of world-class Ivy League Cornell University, boasting twenty-nine Nobel laureates and one of the nation's top engineering schools. The City's water system serves over 35,000 customers via an interconnection of roughly 85 miles of underground cast and ductile iron pipes. The City chose InfoWater Suite to supplant its existing modeling software and support its capital improvement program. The City plans to use the suite's powerful tools to help maximize its GIS data investment; simplify data access and data sharing between engineering, GIS and IT department; and facilitate faster, more accurate geocentric model development and timelier, more effective decision making.

InfoWater Suite is the world's only NAGCS (National Association of GIS Centric Software - www.nagcs.com) certified hydraulic modeling application software. It offers the field's most advanced and award-winning network analysis and optimization technologies, addressing every facet of utility infrastructure management and protection and delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. The suite effortlessly reads ESRI GIS geodatabases; corrects network topology problems and data flaws; extracts pertinent modeling information; and automatically constructs, skeletonizes, loads, calibrates and generates credible network models with astounding speed. It also allows users to share mission-critical GIS and modeling information in real time over the Internet and corporate intranets. Once models have been established, users can easily run and simulate various conditions, pinpoint system deficiencies, plan sound security measures, develop cost-effective energy solutions for water system operations, and determine the improvement and rehabilitation strategies that will best achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance while enhancing community relations.
