Sponsored by


BROOMFIELD, CO, March 31, 2014 -- The North Charleston Sewer District (NCSD), South Carolina, has selected the InfoMaster Sewer from Innovyze, a global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, as its enterprise smart asset management solution.

The transition will provide the District with a comprehensive GIS-centric solution for data collection and analysis, enterprise risk management, predictive analytics, and action-oriented decision making to optimize its sewer infrastructure at maximum benefits.

Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, Calif.), InfoMaster Sewer gives utilities critical insight into all enterprise assets, their conditions and work processes, facilitating significantly better planning and control. Further, it allows users to leverage powerful business analytics and smart network modeling capabilities in new ways to drive higher productivity and quality while managing costs and increasing operational flexibility.

The technology also provides the framework for systematically analyzing and calculating asset criticality and risk, predicting replacement costs and implementing scenario-based planning for infrastructure maintenance and replacement rehabilitation. Armed with these advantages, utilities can create well-engineered condition- and risk-based capital improvement plans, optimize their infrastructures and keep them operating well into the future.

InfoMaster Sewer is NASSCO PACP, MACP and LACP V6.0 certified and includes components to run on desktop, web, tablet, and smartphone environments. NCSD serves more than 115,000 people over a service area of almost 60 square miles. The system treats on average 15 million gallons per day through 475 miles of pipe and 61 pump stations.
