Los Angeles County’s Fifth Largest City Deploys MWH Soft Advanced Modeling Technology for Comprehensive Geospatial Water and Sewer Systems Management


City of Pomona Seeks to Achieve Exceptional Levels of Infrastructure Management and Efficiency

Broomfield, Colorado USA, December 14, 2005 - MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that following an extensive evaluation, the City of Pomona, California, has elected to adopt MWH Soft’s H2OMAP Water and Sewer GIS-based software to develop accurate, comprehensive models of its water distribution and sanitary sewer collection systems. The decision is the latest example of MWH Soft’s market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial infrastructure modeling solutions in North Americas.

Historically a major citrus growing region, Pomona, named for the Roman goddess of fruit, is located at the heart of the Greater Los Angeles Basin. It is adjacent to the vast and expanding Inland Empire, the diverse San Gabriel Valley, and burgeoning Orange County. The city covers nearly twenty-three square miles and serves a population of approximately 156,000. It operates and maintains about 420 miles of water transmission and distribution pipes and 300 miles of gravity sewer pipes. The city plans to use H2OMAP Water and Sewer Pro advanced geospatial modeling technology to guide the development of an optimal capital improvement program for its water and sewer infrastructures.

“As more and more utilities of all sizes experience its clear advantages, H2OMAP Water and Sewer software is 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 functionality, innumerable modeling capabilities, tight GIS integration, and world-class technical support and training represent the kind of significant business advantage that is essential in today’s utility industry.”

With direct geodatabase support, H2OMAP Water and Sewer offer single, comprehensive geospatial solutions for managing the most complex water distribution and sewer collections systems. These innovative, easy-to-use modeling tools apply GIS intelligence to engineering-accurate information, enhanced by the most advanced numerical computation, genetic algorithm optimization and object-component geospatial technologies in the marketplace. Together, they enable users to effortlessly read CAD and GIS datasets; correct network topology problems and data flaws; extract pertinent modeling information; and automatically construct 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 advancing community relations.

“The City of Pomona views technology as a strategic asset - one that can help the city achieve its business and technical goals faster while maintaining tight control over costs,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH Soft. “By providing accurate, timely information to assist in decision making and successful development of their engineering projects, we are confident that H2OMAP will help Pomona develop sound, cost-effective and reliable infrastructure improvement plans, maximize productivity, and deliver its superior customer experience for decades to come. We look forward to contributing to the city’s enduring success.”
