South Coast Water District Deploys MWH Soft ArcGIS-Centric Modeling Technology


MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that South Coast Water District (SCWD), California, has elected to adopt MWH Soft’s industry-leading InfoWater and InfoSewer ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) software. The District’s environmental engineering consulting firm recommended this hydraulic modeling software as part of their water and sewer facilities master planning effort.

SCWD’s selection of InfoWater and InfoSewer validates the experience of utilities worldwide who are discovering that MWH Soft geospatial technology is the fastest, most reliable and comprehensive, easiest-to-use GIS-centric modeling and management system in the mid-price range, clearly offering broader functionality and a superior solution in comparison with competitive software. The District’s decision is the latest example of MWH Soft’s market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial infrastructure modeling solutions in North America.

South Coast Water District provides water and sewer service to more than 40,000 residents and over two million visitors a year in the Southern California coastal communities of Dana Point, South Laguna and areas of north San Clemente. The District delivers 7 million gallons of potable water to customers’ homes and businesses daily and removes 4 million gallons of wastewater for treatment. It operates and maintains a complex hydraulic infrastructure system comprising 147 miles of water mains, 15 miles of recycled water mains, and 139 miles of sewer mains. The District 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 to optimize capital planning and improve system performance.

“Network modeling is one of the most powerful and viable means of developing sound, cost-effective and reliable solutions for managing large, complex water and wastewater infrastructures,” said Robert Clark, PE, Director of Engineering for SCWD. “After careful examination of MWH Soft ArcGIS-centric water and sewer modeling solutions, we concluded that they offered the best value in features and functions. We also found that MWH Soft offered global, proven implementation experience, corporate stability, and an industry-leading reputation for superior customer support. We are excited to start the project implementation with products that are increasingly recognized as the industry standard — products that will grow and develop with our District. We look forward to a lasting and rewarding partnership with MWH Soft.”

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.

“As more and more utilities of all sizes experience their clear advantages, InfoWater and InfoSewer are quickly becoming the standard in systems modeling, management and optimization,” said J. Erick Heath, PE, Vice President of Sales and Client Relations at MWH Soft. “The software’s incredible ease of learning and use, superior presentation tools, advanced functionality, innumerable modeling capabilities, seamless GIS integration, and world-class technical and engineering support and training deliver a significant business advantage — one that is critical in today’s utility industry.”

“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 tools with a rich, comprehensive feature set, robust functionality, advanced geospatial data processing and automation, superior performance, speed of production, seamless interoperable applications, and reliable exchange of data — backed by high-quality technical support. Our state-of-the-art ArcGIS-centric solutions deliver a unique blend of all these benefits and more. They will help SCWD 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 SCWD implement our products is the most rewarding possible confirmation of their value, and we’re proud to be given the opportunity to contribute to its success.”
