Canadian Regional Municipality of Halton Switches to MWH Soft Advanced Geospatial Technology


MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that the Regional Municipality of Halton, Ontario, Canada, has chosen MWH Soft’s InfoWater Suite and InfoSewer Suite software to replace its existing modeling solution. The suites will serve as the foundation for developing a comprehensive ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) solution for managing the Region’s drinking water distribution and sanitary sewer collection systems. The selection further substantiates MWH Soft’s leadership in geospatial hydraulic infrastructure management in the North American market.

One of Canada’s fastest-growing areas, the Regional Municipality of Halton provides water and wastewater services to more than 400,000 residents in the City of Burlington and the Towns of Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville. It covers over 232,000 acres of land, including 15.5 miles (25 km) of frontage along Lake Ontario. The Region will use InfoWater and InfoSewer to review and plan for water and wastewater service to existing and new growth areas, and identify the most cost-effective infrastructure servicing strategies.

Built atop ArcGIS with native geodatabase support, InfoWater and InfoSewer offer a single comprehensive, GIS-centric 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 numerical computation, genetic algorithm optimization and object-component geospatial technologies in the marketplace. The result is a centralized, multi-function system that enables 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.

“A growing number of utilities and engineering organizations worldwide are recognizing the unique value of MWH Soft’s superior geospatial technology,” said Christopher W. Baxter, Ph.D, President of HYDRANNT Consulting in Port Coquitlam, B.C., Canada. “InfoWater and InfoSewer are quickly becoming the industry standard because they offer the best all-around geocentric modeling and management capabilities. Their superior performance, value and power are backed by world-class, high level technical support. These advantages, together with the software’s unparalleled ease of use, make transitioning from any previous software issue-free.”

“By far, MWH Soft offers the most comprehensive selection of ArcGIS-centric hydraulic modeling and management solutions in the water and wastewater industries,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH Soft. “These critical tools are designed to help our customers do their jobs better, faster and at lower cost. We always endeavor to give customers more, easier-to-use capabilities than they expect — equipping them with the tools for any challenge. We’re proud to know that our InfoWater and InfoSewer solutions will be helping the Regional Municipality of Halton build a foundation for success in the decades to come.”
