Harpeth Valley Utilities District Switches to H2OMAP Water Suite for Water Distribution System Enterprise GIS and Hydraulic Model Development


MWH Soft Advanced Geospatial Technology To Serve As Cornerstone of Comprehensive Geoengineering Solution

Broomfield, Colorado USA, May 2008 — MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that Harpeth Valley Utilities District (HVUD), Tennessee, has selected MWH Soft H2OMAP Water Suite software to replace its existing modeling solution. The suite will help the District meet the demanding schedule for the ongoing development of a full-scale GIS and hydraulic model of its water distribution system. The decision is yet another indication of MWH Soft’s market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial hydraulic infrastructure modeling and management solutions in North America.

The Harpeth Valley Utilities District is a nonprofit public utility providing water and wastewater services to customers in portions of Davidson, Williamson and Cheatham Counties, Tennessee. Its drinking water infrastructure includes more than 380 miles of water mains, eight booster stations, 22 million gallons of drinking water reservoir capacity, and a 36 million-gallon-per-day drinking water treatment capacity. H2OMAP Water will replace the existing modeling system with a comprehensive, intuitive and easy-to-use GIS-based solution for modeling, managing, operating and securing that infrastructure.

“We had so many reasons for choosing MWH Soft’s H2OMAP Water,” said Jack Lyle, P.E., Senior Staff Engineer for HVUD. “Key attractions included its short learning curve, ease of use, superior technical support, comprehensive functionality, speed, affordability, and powerful and flexible modeling and optimization environment. For us, this software was right on target. It will help us make improved management decisions to support capital planning and regulatory compliance and greatly enhance our ability to serve our customers.”

Unlike competing products, the innovative new network modeling technology of the H2OMAP software suite addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management and protection — delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Drawing on the most advanced numerical computation and object-component geospatial technologies, it effortlessly reads GIS datasets; corrects network topology problems and data flaws; extracts pertinent modeling information; and automatically constructs, skeletonizes, loads, calibrates and generates credible network models with astounding speed. The suite also allows users to share mission-critical GIS and modeling information in real time over the Internet and corporate intranets. Once models have been established, users can easily run and simulate various conditions, pinpoint system deficiencies, and determine the most cost-effective improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance.

“MWH Soft advanced GIS-modeling technology is a breakthrough achievement, because it allows any size utility to quickly gain superior business advantages without a huge expenditure,” said Paul H. Hsiung, P.E., Senior Client Service Manager for MWH Soft. “The reasons why HVUD chose it are the same as those of customers worldwide who believe MWH Soft technology to be the ultimate solution for comprehensive enterprise GIS- and Internet-based infrastructure modeling and management systems.”

“Our proven, state-of-the-art modeling 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, President and COO of MWH Soft. “This gives them an unbeatable competitive advantage. When progressive utilities like HVUD choose MWH Soft as their solution partner, it underlines 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.”
