The bustling city of Santa Rosa, Calif., situated approximately 89 km (55 mi) north of San Francisco, recently began preparing for major capital improvement upgrades to its sewer system to address growth and wet weather capacity issues.

The city decided to re-evaluate its existing facilities, looking at the treatment, storage, and trunk together to optimize performance and to potentially delay, reduce, or eliminate the large capital improvement recommended in the master plan. To do this, the city worked with its consultant, Malcolm Pirnie Inc. (White Plains, N.Y.) to construct and calibrate a skeletal dynamic hydraulic model using the MWH Soft (Broomfield, Colo.) InfoSWMM system. The model incorporated real-time control modeling calibrated to the area’s winter 2007 to 2008 conditions.
