BROOMFIELD, CO, Mar. 22, 2011 -- MWH Soft, a leading global innovator of wet infrastructure modeling and simulation software and technologies, today announced that City West Water Limited (CWWL), Australia, has awarded MWH Soft a substantial contract for its premier InfoWorks WS water modeling software. With this selection, all three of Melbourne's state-owned metropolitan water retailers rely on MWH Soft for comprehensive wet infrastructure modeling and management solutions.

The program, chosen following a competitive review to replace its existing modeling solution, will support CWWL's commitment to improving its operational efficiency while taking its customer service to new levels.

CWWL provides drinking water, sewerage, trade waste and recycled water services to over 855,900 people in Melbourne's central business district, inner and western suburbs. Its boundaries extend to Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Melbourne (north of the Yarra River), Moonee Valley, Wyndham, Yarra and parts of Melton and Hume. The company's water network consists of 4,431 kilometers of water mains, ten pumping stations, eight service reservoirs and tanks, and four secondary chlorination plants, supplying more than 80 billion liters of water each year. Its sewerage system consists of a network of more than 3,909 kilometers of sewer pipes. CWWL is currently using MWH Soft InfoWorks CS for its wastewater modeling needs.

Bruce Collins, Planning Manager for CWWL, commented, "The MWH Soft InfoWorks WS software is ideal for our needs at CWWL. The breadth and depth of the software modeling capabilities coupled with its remarkable ability to handle large and complex systems and its dependable local support make the MWH Soft solution unique in addressing our current and future design and analysis needs and creating superior customer value."

Around the world, high quality all-mains InfoWorks WS models enable utilities to make informed planning, design and management decisions with confidence by giving them an accurate view of their drinking water distribution systems' performance. This information -- including water quality, supply, demand and infrastructure problems and investigations of remedial measures -- allows them to provide a sustainable supply of high quality water at an acceptable pressure and flow rate to commercial, industrial and domestic users while minimizing loss through leakage. As part of the MWH Soft advanced workgroup modeling management platform, InfoWorks WS is built to handle very large and complex models and allow robust multi-user collaboration.

"Our proven state-of-the-art geospatial modeling technology allows our customers to get up to speed right away, be effective across the enterprise, and achieve reliable results and maximum savings in record time," said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., Hon.D.WRE, F.ASCE, President and COO of MWH Soft. "This gives them a competitive advantage that can't be beat. The fact that leading utilities like City West Water choose MWH Soft as their solution partner demonstrates the superiority of our products. We're very proud to know that our software applications are in place at many of the world's best-run utility companies of every size, helping them meet their corporate and strategic goals and achieve world-class performance at breakthrough savings.
