CA city deploys smart water software for improved decision support, capital planning
In an effort to prioritize main replacement, coordinate outage response, pinpoint capacity deficiencies, and identify optimal flushing locations in the city of Santa Ana, Calif., the Santa Ana Public Works Agency is adopting Sedaru smart water enterprise software from IDModeling, Inc.
ARCADIA, CA, Feb. 26, 2015 -- In an effort to prioritize main replacement, coordinate outage response, pinpoint capacity deficiencies, and identify optimal flushing locations in the city of Santa Ana, Calif., the Santa Ana Public Works Agency (SAPWA) is adopting a smart water enterprise software from IDModeling, Inc., a global provider of smart water network software and services.
A real-time solution to connect organizational data, systems and users across the water enterprise, Sedaru creates and distributes hydraulic, asset and operational management content so utilities can anticipate water operations, understand impacts and solve problems for energy, quality, water resource, and asset management initiatives.
These predictive analytics will support Santa Ana's agile water master planning process and day-to-day operational strategies with real-time data from hydraulics, SCADA and maintenance, thereby saving the city money and resources and creating more impactful outcomes with each project and operational decision. Santa Ana will be able to measure overall effectiveness in relation to its customers, as automated key performance indicators in Sedaru, ultimately allowing for both immediate operational and longer-term asset management benefits.
"We are excited about deploying Sedaru and look forward to utilizing it to perform water model simulations and monitor and analyze field operations in real-time," said Rudy Rosas, P.E., SAPWA civil engineer. "These tools will allow our whole agency to better respond to ever-changing field conditions through improved coordination and a better overall understanding of how our water system behaves."
Founded in 2004 to serve the water/wastewater industry, IDModeling delivers software and services for water operations and planning to utilities across North America. The company offers expertise in the fields of utility operations, maintenance and asset management, with a passion for hydraulics, GIS, mobile, social, and web-based technologies.
