Water distribution in Atlanta to be improved with smart network modeling system

Sponsored by


BROOMFIELD, CO, Feb. 18, 2014 -- The city of Atlanta, Ga., has chosen Innovyze's InfoWater suite, a smart network modeling application, to support its large-scale, enterprise-wide geospatial water distribution network modeling and management needs.

The purchase equips the city with a full range of high-performance ArcGIS-centric (Esri, Redlands, Calif.) water infrastructure modeling, criticality analysis and management capabilities. As such, these advantages will address the enterprise's critical planning, design, operational, and water quality issues with maximum effectiveness; optimize its asset management and capital improvement programs; and improve customer service.

Built atop ArcGIS, InfoWater seamlessly integrates sophisticated predictive analytics, systems dynamics and optimization functionality directly within the powerful ArcGIS setting. From fire flow and water quality simulations, valve criticality and energy cost analysis to pressure zone management and advanced Genetic Algorithm and Particle Swarm optimization, Innovyze's product suite comes equipped with what water utility owner-operators need to best plan, design, operate, secure, and sustain their distribution systems.

Atlanta, the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the United States, provides drinking water to more than one million customers through a complex network of 2,800 miles of pipe, ranging from 2 to 72 inches in diameter, approximately 48,000 valves and 24,000 hydrants, and three water treatment plants with a combined capacity of 247 MGD. The service area consists of three pressure zones covering some 132 square miles. The city's extended period calibrated water network model comprises 26,800 pipes and 22,600 nodes.
