Momentum Continues as More Utilities Recognize the Superior Value of
MWH Soft’s Advanced ArcGIS-Centric Solutions
Broomfield, Colorado USA, July 5, 2006 – MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that Sandy City Public Utilities Department (PUD), has selected MWH Soft ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) InfoWater Suite to replace its existing modeling solution. The department cited the software’s superior ease of use, functionality and performance with complex systems as key reasons for the decision.
Utah is among the fastest-growing states in the country, but also the second driest. Sandy City is its fourth largest municipality. Sandy City PUD serves a population of over 100,000 within a 27 square mile area, supporting high summer demand by pumping groundwater from 23 wells to supplement treated surface water from both Little Cottonwood Creek and Deer Creek Reservoir. The City plans to harness the power of InfoWater to develop accurate representative hydraulic models for managing and operating its drinking water infrastructure adeptly to cope with fast expansion while optimizing capital investment.
“We constantly strive to deliver the highest quality drinking water and excellent service our customers have come to expect while maintaining tight control over costs,” said Rod Sorensen, PE, the department’s Engineering Manager. “When we examined InfoWater’s capabilities, we immediately saw the potential for realizing greater efficiencies and making better-informed decisions. The software’s seamless ArcGIS integration, ease of use, and breadth of functionality will help us immeasurably in developing reliable, cost-effective solutions and meeting our strategic goals. InfoWater’s vast user community and its impressive record of successful implementation reinforce our confidence in the soundness of our investment.”
MWH Soft’s InfoWater advanced geocentric technology has amassed a strong history of helping utilities significantly improve productivity, accelerate project completion cycles, enhance quality, ensure data consistency, and optimize capital planning while promoting collaboration across engineering, planning and GIS teams. Because it addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management, optimization and protection, InfoWater allows utilities to increase profitability and efficiency throughout all stages of a project. By automating key planning and design engineering tasks, the Suite helps water utilities conceive and evaluate various scenarios; pinpoint system deficiencies; and determine the most cost-effective improvements they can make to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance, meet new security challenges, provide better services, and forge closer ties with their customers.
“InfoWater is now becoming the industry staple, delivering advanced modeling capabilities and a superior value in comparison to its competitors,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH Soft. “This can be ascribed in part to the product’s unparalleled performance, ease of learning and use, and technical support. But above all, it must be attributed to InfoWater’s seamless ArcGIS integration, which facilitates the creation and sharing of mission-critical modeling beyond the engineering department to benefit the entire organization and ultimately its customers and partners. We are proud that Sandy City has chosen MWH Soft as its solution partner, and we look forward to participating in the utility’s continued success.”
