MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental
and water resources applications software, today announced
that the City of Aurora, the State of Colorado's third-largest
city, has selected MWH Soft' s H2OMAP Sewer Suite
to replace its existing sewer modeling solution. The
selection confirms the experience of customers worldwide,
who are finding MWH Soft advanced geospatial technology
to be the most comprehensive and easy-to-use GIS based
modeling and management system in the mid-price range.
Broader functionality and a superior solution to those
of its competitors enhance the appeal for users.
The City of Aurora's sanitary sewer system serves
more than 300,000 customers within a 145 square mile
area through approximately 1,000 miles of sewer lines,
ranging in size from 8 inches to 42 inches in diameter.
The city plans to leverage the power of H2OMAP Sewer
to develop cost-effective expansion and rehabilitation
strategies for its wastewater infrastructure - changes
designed to best accommodate continued community growth,
maintain regulatory requirements, and improve operations.
"We investigated many geospatial sewer modeling
software packages, and ultimately chose H2OMAP Sewer
Suite because of the product's impeccable reputation
in the market and its impressive customer satisfaction
rate. The company's overall strength and high-level
technical expertise were very appealing," said
Joseph E. Wingert, P.E., Manager of Plans Review and
Tap Application for Aurora's Water Department. "The
H2OMAP Sewer intuitive interface really demystifies
the complex modeling process, making us feel confident
about mastering the technology and getting up to speed
right away. The software's compatibility with our
GIS and water modeling solution, ease of learning
and use, exceptional customer support, and level of
functionality made it the clear choice for our city."
Developed and supported by industry experts, H2OMAP
Sewer is used by municipal engineers, consultants,
and planners worldwide to create detailed, accurate
models of sanitary and storm sewer collection systems.
These models enable users to assess the effect of
new developments, zoning changes, and other additional
loads on system flows. They also help pinpoint current
and future problem areas; determine how best to restore
capacity lost to infiltration and inflow with the
least rehabilitation; predict unwanted overflow events
and backups; develop sound, cost-effective improvement
alternatives; meet environmental regulations; and
enhance community relations.
The program offers fast, comprehensive hydraulic
and dynamic water quality computational capabilities,
including steady-state analysis using various peaking
factors, automated system design and sophisticated
dynamic modeling that considers flow attenuation,
time of concentration, and source tracing. Other capabilities
include pollutant, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD),
sediment transport/deposition, hydrogen sulfide and
"H2OMAP Sewer continues to receive very high
praise from leading utilities and engineering consultants
worldwide," said Rebecca J. Wulff, Client Service
Manager for MWH Soft. "The software is very easy
to master and use, and is also powerful enough to
quickly and accurately model and analyze extremely
large and complex sanitary sewer collection systems.
New users see an immediate and dramatic improvement
in the detail and complexity of their enterprise GIS-based
modeling projects. That's the key reason for our system's
unprecedented adoption and satisfaction rates."
"Companies all over the world continue to recognize
the benefits of high performance geospatial modeling,"
said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH
Soft. "H2OMAP Sewer offers the most cost-effective
approach to maximizing the value of an enterprise's
geospatial and modeling data, leading to faster, more
informed decision making and enhanced operations.
The amount of time, money, and resources saved by
using our products is tremendous. We're proud that
a city with such an advanced engineering organization
and accomplished track record has invested in MWH
Soft software, and very excited to participate in
the city's success."
