US city selects Innovyze’s smart water network software

1 November 2012

The City of Toledo will use Innovyze’s smart water network software to manage and improve its water infrastructure and projects.

The city of Toledo in Ohio, US, has selected Innovyze's smart water network software to manage water infrastructure and optimise capital improvement projects.

Innovyze is a provider of wet infrastructure business analytics software solutions for the technological requirements of water and wastewater utilities.

Using the InfoWater software Toledo will use to develop a geographic information system (GIS)-based solution to manage water infrastructure and improve its projects.

Innovyze has built the software based on on Esri's ArcGIS, which creates and uses maps, compiles geographic data and analyses the information.

The software easily integrates sophisticated analytics, systems dynamics, and optimisation functionality directly within the ArcGIS setting.

The City of Toledo Utility Engineering administrator Scott Sibley said the software is a combination of power, functionality, GIS integration and other capabilities to support the city's enterprise-wide GIS network modeling and management activities.

"These advantages, along with InfoWater's excellent training and technical support, will help insure our ability to accurately model our system for years to come," Sibley added.

Infowater is equipped with features that help water utility operators and owners design, operate, secure, and sustain water distribution systems such as fire flow and water quality simulations, valve criticality, energy cost analysis, pressure zone management and advanced genetic algorithm and particle swarm optimisation.

It is also used as a platform for advanced smart network modeling, operational, capital planning, and asset management extensions.
