The MWH Soft H2OMAP Water Suite will help the Department meet the demanding schedule for the ongoing development of its full-scale water distribution system GIS and hydraulic model.

MWH Soft, Inc., a global provider of water resources applications software, announced that Kansas City, MO Water Services Department has selected MWH Soft H2OMAP Water Suite software to replace its existing modeling solution. The suite will help the Department meet the demanding schedule for the ongoing development of its full-scale water distribution system GIS and hydraulic model. The decision is yet another indication of MWH Soft's market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial infrastructure modeling solutions in North America. Kansas City, Missouri, known as the "Heart of America," is situated at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas rivers, within 200 miles of both the geographic and population centers of the nation. It incorporates 316 square miles over parts of four counties and has a population of about 450,000. The Water Services Department maintains and operates water collection, processing and distribution systems; stormwater management and control systems; and wastewater collection and processing systems for residential and business customers in Kansas City and wholesale customers in the Kansas City region. Its hydraulic infrastructure system includes more than 2,300 miles of water mains, 2,600 miles of sewer lines, more than 30,000 stormdrain inlets, and nearly 18,000 fire hydrants. H2OMAP will replace the existing modeling system, providing a comprehensive, easy-to-use GIS-based solution for modeling, managing, and securing the Department's drinking water infrastructure. Unlike competing products, the innovative new network modeling technology of the H2OMAP software suite addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management and protection - delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Drawing on the most advanced numerical computation and object-component geospatial technologies, it effortlessly reads GIS datasets; 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. The suite 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, and determine the most cost-effective improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance.
