What you can do with InfoWater

  • Fast Modeling for Any Size of Network

    Whether your network comprises 100 or 100,000+ pipes, InfoWater has the power to quickly model your system. With direct ArcGIS integration and a host of carefully designed, specialized product extensions, InfoWater takes your water distribution modeling and management capabilities to new levels of performance, scalability, reliability and flexibility.

  • Advanced Modeling Applications

    InfoWater enables many applications for distribution system analysis, including:

    • Build/run network model in ArcMap
    • Valve criticality modeling and analysis
    • Pump and valve optimization
    • Demand and fire flow management
    • Water security planning
    • Water quality (multi-species) simulation
    • Leak detection and reduction
    • Sensor location optimization
    • Carbon cost calculation
    • Pressure zone management
    • Unidirectional flushing
    • Vulnerability/risk assessment
    • Pressure surge protection, with InfoSurge
    Advanced Modeling Applications
  • Compare Countless Scenarios

    With InfoWater you can easily develop and compare what-if scenarios such as identifying the best pump operation strategies, most impactful incident response actions, master planning build-out options, cost-effective design alternatives, and much more. You can easily switch between scenarios and compare modeling results instantly.

  • Accurate Geographic Demand Allocation

    Determining how much and where the water is being consumed is a key component of water distribution modeling. Another is evaluating impacts from seasonal variations, conservation efforts, and climate change studies. InfoWater takes account of consumption data from any source (including meter readings, billing records, and telemetered system flows), and estimates from consumer characteristics (such as population, land use, or traffic counts) and automates the geographical allocation of demand to ensure the accuracy of hydraulic network models.

  • Extensive Water Quality Capabilities

    InfoWater simulates the movement, concentration, and fate of water quality constituents (such as chlorine and fluoride residuals) as they travel through the network – which is key for drinking water compliance. It models water age, and computes over time the percentage of water originating from any specified source location. It simulates conservative and reactive species as well as the more advanced multiple substance accumulation/decay.

  • Pressure Zone and DMA Management

    InfoWater is a powerful but highly usable planning tool that makes it easy to optimize and manage pressure zones and DMA (District Metered Areas). It automatically delineates pressure zones based on zone boundary elements such as tanks, pumps, control valves, check valves, closed pipes, and reservoirs. It also provides visualization tools and summary reports that aid both model calibration and also system operational performance.

  • Emergency Response Planning and Consequence Management

    InfoWater helps you estimate the consequences of a crisis as well as formulate and evaluate response and recovery plans. It enables you to:

    • Model the propagation of naturally, accidentally, or intentionally introduced contaminants
    • Calculate and notify populations at risk
    • Identify the source(s), decide how to isolate the event and compute required purging water volume
    • Determine the impact on fire-fighting capabilities
    • Prepare data for prosecution
  • Effective Flushing

    InfoWater helps reduce odor and taste complaints and improves the quality of water to customers. It optimizes flushing activities (whether conventional hydrant flushing or Uni-Directional Flushing (UDF) with InfoWater UDF):

    • Identifying how long the hydrants need to be open and which valves need to be closed
    • Assessing the impact on the rest of the network
    • Automatically producing field-ready maps
