Colorado's Third Largest City Adopts MWH Soft Geospatial Sewer Modeling Technology

City of Aurora Chooses H2OMAP Sewer Suite to Support Master Planning Effort and Optimize Capital Projects

Broomfield, Colorado USA, October 31, 2006

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 corrosion modeling.

"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."
