More than 60 new features round out the full-featured sewer network analysis program.

MWH Soft, Broomfield, Colo., a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, announced the worldwide availability of the V2 Generation of InfoSWMM for power ArcGIS (ESRI, Redlands, Calif.) users. The release marks the most significant milestone to date in the evolution of the company's flagship urban drainage modeling product, the leading software solution for the effective management and operation of stormwater and wastewater collection systems. With this new and improved version, the company seeks to further strengthen its market leadership by delivering even more sophisticated solutions.

As a full-featured sewer network analysis program, InfoSWMM delivers the highest rate of return in the industry. All operations of a typical sanitary, storm and combined sewer system - from analysis and design to management functions such as water quality assessment, urban flooding, real-time control and record keeping - are addressed in a single, fully integrated geoengineering environment. It offers users unprecedented power in managing urban runoff and wet weather water quality problems in their combined, sanitary and storm sewers, optimizing their BMP and LID designs, and meeting SSO and CSO regulations. The model also offers very sophisticated Real-Time Control (RTC) schemes for the operational management of wastewater systems and hydraulic structures. The unparalleled performance modeling of InfoSWMM sets new benchmarks in scalability, reliability, functionality and flexibility within the powerful ArcGIS environment.

InfoSWMM is quickly becoming the must-have solution for comprehensive enterprise-wide geospatial sewer collection systems engineering. With an intuitive working environment, cutting edge new features and improvements, V2 Generation brings unmatched capabilities to the wastewater industry, backed by unparalleled technical support.

Support of the powerful ArcGIS platform as well as USEPA's industry-standard Stormwater Management Model (SWMM5) makes this a milestone release for effective GIS-centric planning, design, rehabilitation, and expansion of sanitary, storm and combined sewer collection systems. InfoSWMM also offers powerful graphics and reporting tools that make its sophisticated modeling applications fast and easy, regardless of users' technical expertise - extending its benefits across the entire enterprise.
