MWH Soft Kicks Off Workshop Series on Geospatial Modeling Solutions for Water/Wastewater Professionals


MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, is sharing knowledge on the latest advances in geospatial network modeling, optimization and management software in a series of worldwide seminars developed for water and wastewater engineers and geographic information system (GIS) professionals.

These comprehensive seminars explore how water, wastewater and stormwater professionals can use GIS technology and advanced geospatial modeling and information management applications to do their jobs better, easier, faster and more efficiently. They also showcase the newest geospatial applications for hydraulic and water quality modeling and asset management.

The well-received, complimentary day-long presentations are being held in key states through December. Seminars also are planned for audiences outside the United States, starting in Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom and expanding to other countries.

The first workshop on January 24 in Virginia Beach, VA, drew full-capacity attendance, including utility engineering experts in the Hampton Roads area from the cities of Suffolk and Virginia Beach, the Hampton Roads Sanitation District, CDM, Greeley and Hansen, Malcolm Pirnie, URS and Whitman Requardt & Associates. Dan Graber, PE, DEE, Utility Engineer Manager for the City of Suffolk, VA was very appreciative of the MWH Soft team for elevating local discussions on the difficult issue of integrating force main and gravity sewer modeling. “The workshop was very well coordinated and presented an excellent learning opportunity for both expert and novice modelers and managers; it has served as a great primer on the InfoSWMM modeling technologies,” he said. Robert Martz, PE, Engineer III with the City of Virginia Beach, also praised the presentation. “This was most certainly a technical workshop worth attending,” he said. “All participants came away from the day with tremendously useful knowledge. I would recommend this workshop to anyone.”

A demonstration of the latest release of MWH Soft’s industry-leading InfoSWMM Suite and InfoWater Suite software is among the highlights of these events. Built atop ArcGIS with native geodatabase support, InfoSWMM and InfoWater offer a single comprehensive, geocentric solution for analyzing and managing the most complex water distribution and sewer collections systems. A seamlessly integrated geospatial framework applies GIS intelligence to engineering-accurate information, coupled with the most advanced dynamic numerical computation, genetic algorithm optimization and object-component geospatial technologies in the marketplace.

The resulting centralized, multi-function system delivers world-record performance, scalability, reliability, functionality and flexibility within the powerful ArcGIS environment, completely eliminating the need for inefficient, unreliable data synchronization, synching schemes, or middlelink interfaces required by other software. These factors and more translate to increased productivity, reduced costs, greater efficiency, and improved designs — giving water and wastewater utilities a clear competitive advantage.

Across the continent, the accelerated adoption rate of MWH Soft geospatial technology continues to reflect a powerful trend among water/wastewater utilities and progressive engineering firms toward MWH Soft products. The shift is being driven by a range of compelling factors, including the products’ broad functionality, unparalleled GIS integration, full compatibility with the industry standard USEPA EPANET and SWMM5 (FEMA certified) software, interoperability, computational speed, reliability and brief learning curve. Other attractions include the software’s intuitive and engineer-friendly user interface, advanced optimization capabilities, comprehensive solution set, and superior technical support.

“The latest releases of InfoWater and InfoSWMM feature by far the best enhancements we have ever made,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, MWH Soft president. “Our goal is always to make our products simpler, faster, much easier to use, more reliable, and higher in quality, with scores of new capabilities.”

Boulos encouraged customers to attend one of the workshops. “These sessions, conducted by expert modelers, spotlight both user-requested enhancements and ongoing innovations designed to help support our users’ network modeling needs and revolutionize the way they work,” he said.

Trent Schade, PE, Senior Client Service Manager and National Urban Drainage Technology Leader for MWH Soft, noted that the firm is constantly striving to improve the overall water and sewer infrastructure analysis and design process for its customers by adding new modeling capabilities and pushing the envelope through pioneering technology. “As a result, our users will see scores of new easy-to-use features and functionality, allowing them to model and design more complex systems with increased speed and flexibility,” he said. “Our latest version gives users the trusted tool they need to identify the most cost-effective ways of keeping their systems operating efficiently into the future.”

The workshops are designed for current and potential users of MWH Soft software. GIS analysts and technology evangelists will also benefit from these events. While there is no cost to attend, seating is limited, and pre-registration is required.
