The Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities upgrades to MWH Soft H2OMAP Water and Sewer Suites to optimize capital improvement projects and improve efficiency.

MWH Soft, Inc., Broomfield, Colorado, a leading global provider of water resources applications software, announced that Wyoming's Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (CBPU) has chosen MWH Soft's H2OMAP GIS software suites to develop accurate, comprehensive models of their drinking water and sanitary sewer systems. The decision to switch to a new technology was incited by difficulties CBPU had encountered with other software packages. MWH Soft advanced GIS modeling technology was chosen after a careful evaluation of a range of functional and technical requirements. Breakthrough H2OMAP models, implemented in record time, are now helping CBPU plan the expansion and rehabilitation of their existing water and wastewater infrastructures to best accommodate continued community growth, maintain regulatory requirements and improve operations.

The Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities provides water and sewer services to the city of Cheyenne (the capital of the state of Wyoming, recognized by the White House with the prestigious Preserve America Communities award in March 2004). It also serves FE Warren Air Force Base and the South Cheyenne Water and Sewer District. Developed directly from CBPU's extensive ArcGIS (ESRI, Redlands, Calif.) data model, the utility's calibrated H2OMAP Water model comprised 4,372 pipes (507 miles) while its calibrated H2OMAP Sewer model contained 2,795 pipes (147 miles). CBPU is leveraging the powers of H2OMAP Water and Sewer software for its enterprise-wide GIS-integrated infrastructure modeling and management programs, to support its comprehensive water and wastewater master planning effort, and to optimize capital improvement projects.

Providing direct support to geodatabases, the innovative network modeling technology of the MWH Soft geospatial 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 genetic algorithms optimization, hydraulic simulation and geospatial analysis 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 physical and operational improvements and security upgrades to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance while improving community relations.
