Spain utility adopts modeling solution to improve wastewater collection

Sponsored by


BROOMFIELD, CO, April 1, 2014 -- Aguas de Valencia, a private water utility serving more than 3.5 million residents mainly in Valencia, Catalonia, Aragón and Northern Spain, has begun full deployment of a new modeling solution to meet its complex dynamic sewer modeling requirements.

Provided by Innovyze, a global specialist of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, Infoworks ICM (Integrated Catchment Modeling) is an integrated modeling platform to incorporate both urban and river catchments and is a sophisticated tool for importing, tracking and auditing large amounts of highly complex data. 

The technology will provide Aguas de Valencia with the development of cost-effective, innovative solutions to engineering challenges as well as a complete understanding of the processes involved. Further, it will provide simulations that can be scheduled across a pool of workstations with results returned to a single location, making for highly-effective use of computing resources.

InfoWorks ICM can provide integration of one-dimensional hydrodynamic simulation of flows in rivers, open channels and pipe networks with two-dimensional hydrodynamic simulation of surface flooding in the urban environment and river floodplain. The software provides a powerful solution for simultaneously modeling belowground and aboveground elements of catchments to accurately represent all flow paths and improve understanding of processes occurring in the holistic environment.

The software also takes into account interactions of natural and man-made environments and effectively simulates the water quality impact of polluting runoff and effluent from urban areas. Such advanced capabilities greatly enhance wastewater utilities' ability to predict overflows; support cost-effective drainage design and management; develop online urban flooding forecasts; conceive and evaluate sound and reliable urban catchment strategies such as storm sewer separation, active real-time control, and provision of adequate additional storage; and improve the operation of any drainage system.
