New Mexico's Largest City Advances Enterprise GIS Modeling By Adopting MWH Soft InfoWater Technology 11.9.04
November 9, 2004
MWH Soft Inc., a global provider of water resources applications software, announced that the Albuquerque-Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (serving the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico and surrounding areas), has deployed multiple licenses of InfoWater Suite advanced geospatial technology, the industry's premier ArcGIS-based (ESRI, Redlands, CA) suite of infrastructure modeling and optimization software solutions. By using InfoWater, the Water Utility plans to more effectively support its comprehensive enterprise GIS water system modeling by increasing efficiency and improving coordination and teamwork with its various divisions. The move underscores MWH Soft's market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial infrastructure modeling and management solutions in North America. The Water Utility serves a population of 475,000 via a complex 16 zone water system comprised of 93 wells distributed over 200 square miles, 27 booster pump stations, 45 reservoirs, and over 2,500 miles of pipeline. The total pumping capacity of all the wells is over 275 million gallons per day. The Utility will make InfoWater the basis for developing a comprehensive ArcGIS-based solution for modeling, operating, and managing its drinking water infrastructure and optimizing its capital improvement projects. Unlike competing products, the innovative network modeling technology of the MWH Soft geospatial software suite addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management, optimization and protection - delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Built atop ArcGIS and 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 optimized solutions with astounding speed. The result is performance modeling that sets new levels of scalability, reliability, functionality and flexibility within the powerful ArcGIS environment. Using these advanced tools, utilities can easily simulate and evaluate various conditions, pinpoint system deficiencies, and determine the most cost-effective improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance, and meet new security challenges.
