Innovyze’s smart water network modeling technology has been chosen by the Water Authority of Dickson County, Tennessee, to help the water authority improve capital and business planning.
The WADC will use InfoWater to support its large-scale, enterprise-wide geospatial water distribution network modeling and management needs.
WADC engineering manager Michael W. Rogers says the smart water management tool seamlessly interfaces with WADC’s GIS and will help optimize the performance, sustainability and resilience of the water distribution system.
Innovyze says InfoWater’s network modeling technology addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management and protection. Built atop ArcGIS, InfoWater integrates predictive analytics, systems dynamics and optimization functionality. 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 suite comes equipped with everything water utility owner-operators need to best plan, design, operate, secure and sustain their distribution systems, the company says.
The software also serves as a base platform for advanced smart network modeling, operation, capital planning, and asset management extensions. Among these critical applications are IWLive (real-time operations and security); InfoWater UDF (unidirectional flushing); CapPlan (risk-based capital planning); InfoMaster and InfoMaster Mobile (asset integrity management and condition assessment); InfoWater MSX (multi-species modeling); InfoWater BTX (event/particle backtracking); InfoSurge (surge/transient analysis); Sustainability (carbon footprint calculation); BalanceNet (real-time energy management and operations optimization); PressureWatch (real-time network hydraulic integrity monitoring); QualWatch (real-time network water quality integrity monitoring); SCADAWatch (real-time business intelligence and performance monitoring); DemandWatch (water demand forecasting); and DemandAnalyst (real-time water demand and diurnal pattern estimations).
