• Will Use WaterGEMS, SewerGEMS, and WaterCAD to Help Service 1.4 Million Residents

LOS ANGELES, May 1, 2007 -- Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that Aqua Pennsylvania, Inc., a subsidiary of Aqua America, Inc., the largest U.S.-based publicly traded water utility, has selected Bentley's Haestad Methods solutions to model the infrastructure that provides water and wastewater service to approximately 1.4 million residents across Pennsylvania.

Aqua Pennsylvania's selection of Bentley's WaterGEMS, SewerGEMS, and WaterCAD products was based on a thorough review by the utility's modeling engineers, CAD designers, and GIS professionals. Interoperability with AutoCAD and ESRI's ArcGIS was a key factor in choosing the new modeling platform.

"Aqua Pennsylvania is undertaking a major effort to integrate GIS and hydraulic modeling of its water distribution networks in Pennsylvania, and to support hydraulic modeling efforts in other Aqua America companies," said Bill Ross, Aqua America's vice president, engineering. "As part of that effort, Bentley's Haestad Methods hydraulic modeling software will play an important role in managing our current and future networks."

WaterGEMS and SewerGEMS are the only water and wastewater modeling solutions to offer utilities the flexibility of using any of four interoperable platforms within a single product. These modeling platforms include MicroStation, ArcGIS, AutoCAD, and a completely updated stand-alone interface providing unprecedented ease of use, speed, and flexibility within a single modeling product.
