Award-Winning Clay County Utility Authority Moves to MWH Soft ArcGIS-Centric Modeling Technology


InfoSWMM Will Play Key Role in Improving the Authority’s Wastewater System Integrity,
Reliability and Performance

Broomfield, Colorado USA, August 9, 2006 - MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that Clay County Utility Authority (CCUA), Florida, has elected to adopt MWH Soft’s industry-leading InfoSWMM Suite ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) software. The program will serve as the foundation for developing a comprehensive geospatial modeling solution for operating and managing the Authority’s wastewater collection system.

CCUA is a multi-purpose public utility providing water, wastewater, and reclaimed water utility services to over 40,000 customers in the unincorporated area of Clay County, one of the nation’s fastest-growing regions. The Authority, one of the few utilities in Northeast Florida using advanced wastewater treatment techniques, has initiated a reclaimed water system that conserves an average of 1.353 million gallons of drinking water per day. The Authority has been acknowledged with over 25 awards for its innovative and effective initiatives to improve the quality of the environment.

Built atop ArcGIS with native geodatabase support, InfoSWMM is a full-featured urban drainage and sewer network analysis and design program that delivers the highest rate of return in the industry - making it the ideal choice for organizations that need a complete and powerful sanitary, storm or combined sewer modeling solution. InfoSWMM addresses all the operations of a typical sewer system - from analysis and design to management functions such as water quality assessment, pollution prediction, urban flooding, real-time control and recordkeeping - in one intuitive, easy to use and affordable package. It allows engineers to examine backwater effects and reverse flow, trunk sewers, open channels, complex piping connections, and a comprehensive library of ancillary structures with sophisticated real-time controls.

The software 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 wastewater utilities a clear competitive advantage.

InfoSWMM gives users unprecedented power in managing urban runoff and wet weather water quality problems in combined, sanitary and storm sewers; optimizing BMP and LID designs; and meeting SSO and CSO regulations. The model also offers highly sophisticated Real-Time Control (RTC) schemes for the operational management of wastewater systems and hydraulic structures. It is the world’s first and only urban drainage modeling solution certified by the National Association of GIS-Centric Software (NAGCS). Its powerful hydraulic computational engine is also endorsed by the USEPA and certified by FEMA.

“InfoSWMM Suite was chosen for its powerful hydraulic computational engine, comprehensive hydrologic/hydraulic analysis and optimization capabilities, together with GIS functionality, speed, reliability, versatility, and first-class technical support,” said David Bolam, P.E., Chief Engineer with CCUA. “It’s a highly sophisticated and multifaceted tool that will help us optimize our capital improvement program and continue to provide our customers with the best long-term value at the lowest possible cost.”

“InfoSWMM takes an inherently complicated sewer management activity and makes it easy enough for anyone in the engineering department to perform and generate reliable solutions with,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH Soft. “Ease of use combined with the accurate results InfoSWMM delivers allow wastewater engineers to develop sound, cost-effective capital planning, perfect the management and operation of their sewer systems, and enhance customer relationships. More and more utilities are turning to InfoSWMM software as they realize how much it adds to their bottom line. We are excited that Clay County Utility Authority has adopted InfoSWMM as its wastewater modeling and design solution and look forward to being a part of its award-winning efforts to improve the environment.”
