City of Conroe, TX, Selects InfoWater and InfoSWMM
Industry-leading ArcGIS-Centric Network Modeling Solutions to Assist City in Managing its Water and Wastewater Systems
Broomfield, Colorado, USA, April 11, 2017
Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced that the City of Conroe, Texas, has selected industry-leading and award-winning InfoWater and InfoSWMM to manage its water and wastewater systems.
Located 40 minutes north of Houston in the heart of Montgomery County, the City of Conroe is experiencing historic growth, becoming one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation. InfoWater and InfoSWMM will help the City assess present and future water and wastewater infrastructure needs, evaluate the effectiveness of the current systems and focus maintenance resources.
“InfoWater and InfoSWMM are critical components of our water and wastewater systems strategy,” said Scott Taylor, P.E., Executive Director of Infrastructure Services for City of Conroe. “This advanced network modeling software will help us leverage our comprehensive GIS system to meet the demanding schedule for our ongoing master planning effort and optimize our capital improvement program.”
Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA) and winner of the coveted ArcGIS for Desktop Based Application Award, InfoWater seamlessly integrates sophisticated network modeling, predictive analytics, systems dynamics, business planning, and optimization functionality directly within the powerful ArcGIS setting. From fire flow and dynamic water quality simulations, valve criticality and energy cost analysis to pressure zone management and advanced Genetic Algorithm and Particle Swarm optimization, the software comes equipped with everything water utility owner-operators need to best plan, design, operate, secure and sustain their water transmission and distribution systems. The software also serves as a base platform for advanced real-time modeling and forecasting (IWLive); unidirectional flushing (InfoWater UDF); multi-species water quality modeling (InfoWater MSX); and real-time water demand and diurnal pattern estimations (DemandAnalyst).
A complete ArcGIS-centric urban drainage modeling solution, the full-featured InfoSWMM analysis and design program delivers the highest rate of return in the industry. All operations of a typical sewer system — from analysis and design to management functions such as water quality assessment, pollution prediction, sediment transport and deposition, urban flooding, real-time control, and record keeping — are addressed in a single, fully integrated geoengineering environment. The program’s powerful hydraulic and water quality computational engine is based on an enhanced version of the latest USEPA SWMM 5, which is certified by FEMA. The software also serves as a robust base platform for advanced two-dimensional surface flood modeling (InfoSWMM 2D); real-time operational modeling (SWMMLive); and urban stormwater treatment and analysis (InfoSWMM Sustain) for the optimal selection, placement and sizing of green infrastructure.
“Our proven state-of-the-art water and wastewater network modeling and management technology allows users to get up to speed right away, be effective across the enterprise, and achieve high quality results and maximum savings in record time,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, Chief Executive Officer of Innovyze. “This gives them a competitive advantage that can’t be beat. The fact that progressive cities like Conroe, Texas, choose Innovyze as their solution partner demonstrates the superiority of our products. We’re very proud to know that our software applications are in place at many of the world’s best-run utility companies of every size, helping them meet their corporate and strategic goals and achieve world-class performance at breakthrough savings.”
