Responding to the wastewater industry's ever-increasing need for powerful GIS-centric solutions, MWH Soft Inc., a global provider of water resources applications software, announced the worldwide availability of InfoSewer for ArcGIS 9 (ESRI, Redlands, Calif.).

Distinguished by a compelling combination of cutting-edge GIS functionality and MWH Soft hallmark analysis and integration capabilities, InfoSewer puts industry leading price/performance sewer systems modeling and management capabilities in the hands of power ArcGIS users.

Support of the powerful ArcGIS 9 (including SP1) platform makes this a milestone release of the company's GIS-centric solution for effective planning, design, rehabilitation, and expansion of sanitary, storm and combined sewer collection systems. The new release is also equipped with many user-driven enhancements that make sophisticated modeling applications fast and easy, regardless of the users' technical expertise - extending its benefits across the entire enterprise.

Built atop ArcGIS using the latest Microsoft component technology (Microsoft, Redmond, WA) and ESRI ArcObjects application framework, InfoSewer seamlessly integrates advanced flow analysis and quality modeling functionality with the latest generation of ESRI GIS technology - meeting the needs of both GIS and wastewater engineering professionals in one complete, affordable package that empowers users to create detailed, accurate models of their sewer collection systems.

These rigorous models make it possible to accurately evaluate the effect of new developments, zoning changes, and other additional loads on system flows; pinpoint current and future problem areas; predict overflows and backups; analyze sulfide generation and corrosion potential; track sediment movement and deposition; calculate the amount of pollutant transported to the wastewater treatment plant and assess its impacts on receiving waters. It also enables users to compute the rate of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) exertion and determine how best to restore needed capacity lost to infiltration and inflow with the least rehabilitation, aimed at enhancing performance, complying with environmental regulations, ensuring safe, reliable operations, and forging closer ties with customers.

The release embodies MWH Soft's ongoing commitment to leadership in infrastructure modeling solutions for wastewater industry professionals working in the ArcGIS environment. Customer response to InfoSewer has been overwhelmingly positive, with higher performance and ease of use cited as key advantages that allow engineers to create accurate models faster.
