Flood Forecasting: The Original Operational Water Digital Twin

Flooding can be an essential part of the economy – so much agriculture depends on the nutrients that flood brings. However, most of us know flooding for the damage, disruption, and of course loss of life, that it brings. By giving warning of impending flood, people can take action to reduce damage, reduce disruption, be informed to get out of the way, take refuge and thus save lives. To learn more read this blog...

Benefits of InfoWorks ICM Suite

Infoworks ICM is a powerful modeling tool that can be further valued by using RiskMaster and time series databases (TSDB) which are included in the Infoworks ICM Suite. Essentially, TSDB is a software system that stores information and associates time with a certain value. Instead of being limited to idealized or hypothetical conditions and data, the TSDB in ICM allows you to use actual rainfall events in your simulation or other information collected in the field.

Beyond A Project Model: Why You Need a Sewer / Storm Master Database

For years, engineer and planning teams have used hydraulic and hydrologic models to adjust and plan for long term changes to the system. Many times, when the core project of the model is completed the model is left without updates for long periods of time. Now utilities and engineering firms are using interconnected modeling databases to support ongoing planning, operations, and real-time system management. The status quo is changing, read this article to learn more:

Looking Ahead To 2021

With 2021 nearly here, we’d like to share what’s in store for the year to come as it relates to Asset Management, Digital Twins, and Artificial Intelligence. Utilities historically have struggled with reactive maintenance and how to respond to events, such as water main breaks and pipe failures. 2020 was a year in which we continued to help our clients understand that reactive at the last minute can be costly and comes with its own set of risks.

6 Ways Engineering Firms Can Help Utilities of Any Size with Asset Management

Large water and wastewater utilities tend to have the necessary resources as well as technology when it comes to effective asset management. However, the same can’t always be said for medium and small utilities. In this blog, we’ll take a look at how engineering firms can customize their asset management engineering services to help small and medium-sized water systems.
