South Dakota’s Second-Largest City Deploys MWH Soft ArcGIS-Centric Modeling Technology


MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that Rapid City, South Dakota, has elected to adopt MWH Soft’s industry-leading InfoWater and InfoSewer ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) software.

As part of their water and sewer facilities planning, the City’s environmental engineering consulting firms recommended this hydraulic modeling software. Rapid City’s selection of InfoWater and InfoSewer validates the experience of customers worldwide who are finding MWH Soft geospatial technology to be the fastest, most comprehensive and easy-to-use GIS-based modeling and management system in the mid-price range, offering broader functionality and a superior solution compared to competitive software. The decision is the latest example of MWH Soft’s market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial infrastructure modeling solutions in North America.

The hub of the Black Hills, Rapid City has a suburban population of about 70,000 and a metro population of about 110,000. It operates and maintains a complex hydraulic infrastructure system comprising 359 miles of water mains and 300 miles of sewer mains. The city will use MWH Soft programs to develop accurate, comprehensive models of its water distribution and sewer collection systems. These models will aid the enterprise in determining cost-effective management strategies that best accommodate rapid community growth.

With direct support to geodatabases, the innovative network modeling technology of the MWH Soft geospatial water and sewer software family addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management, operation, and protection – delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Drawing on the most advanced hydraulic and water quality simulation and geospatial analysis technologies, the software effortlessly reads GIS datasets; corrects network topology problems and data flaws; extracts pertinent modeling information; and reliably constructs credible network models with astounding speed. Once models have been established, users can easily run and simulate various conditions, pinpoint system deficiencies, and determine the most cost-effective physical and operational improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance while improving community relations.

“Top water and wastewater utilities worldwide have standardized the development of their hydraulic network models around MWH Soft software,” commented Paul H. Hsiung, PE, Senior Client Service Manager for MWH Soft. “Both powerful and easy to use, InfoWater and InfoSewer will help Rapid City improve productivity, realize many efficiencies in a short time, and pass these benefits on to their customers through better designs and higher quality standards. Seeing technology-leading utilities like Rapid City implement our products is the most rewarding possible confirmation of their value.”

“The success of any water or wastewater modeling and engineering project relies on a delicate balance of critical factors,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH Soft. “They include access to a rich, comprehensive feature set, robust functionality, advanced geospatial data processing and automation, superior performance, speed of production, seamless interoperable applications, reliable exchange of data, and high quality technical support. Our state-of-the-art ArcGIS-centric solutions deliver a unique blend of all these benefits and more. Rapid City has a long-standing tradition of engineering excellence, and our company is proud to have been given the opportunity to contribute to its success.”
