Metropolitan sewer district of greater cincinnati adopts infoSWMM


Broomfield, Colorado USA -- Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, today announced that the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) in Ohio has selected InfoSWMM Executive Suite software to use as an enhancement to its modeling activities. The choice was made following an evaluation of InfoSWMM’s performance related to a range of functional and technical criteria.

Owned by the County and managed by the City of Cincinnati, the MSD handles wastewater collection and treatment for approximately 800,000 customers in 33 municipalities in Hamilton County, Ohio. Its wastewater infrastructure system includes more than 3,000 miles of combined and separate sanitary sewer lines, approximately 120 pump stations and 7 major wastewater treatment plants. MSD will use InfoSWMM as a tool for modeling and managing its sewer infrastructure and optimizing its capital improvement projects.

“We chose InfoSWMM Executive Suite for a number of reasons,” said Eric Saylor, MSD System Wide Model Team. “They include its hydraulic computational engine, modeling capabilities, GIS functionality, good data and scenario management, ease of use, and its compatibility with USEPA SWMM5.”

The full-featured InfoSWMM analysis and design program, the world’s first and only urban drainage modeling solution certified by the National Association of GIS-centric Software, delivers the highest rate of return in the industry. All operations of a typical sewer system — from analysis and design to management functions such as water quality assessment, hydrogen sulfide buildup and corrosion potential, pollution prediction, low impact development (LID) practices, sediment transport and deposition, urban flooding, real-time control and record keeping — are addressed in a single, fully integrated geoengineering environment. The program’s powerful hydraulic and water quality computational engine is endorsed by USEPA and certified by FEMA. These factors and more produce an enhanced modeling experience and greater realism of displayed results — advantages that translate to increased productivity, reduced costs, better efficiency and improved designs.

“Utility leaders like MSD are quick to appreciate the versatility, high performance, and incredibly powerful geospatial modeling, analysis and optimization capabilities of InfoSWMM,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., Hon.D.WRE, F.ASCE, President and COO of Innovyze. “Time and again, Innovyze advanced modeling solutions outperform all their competitors in in-depth customer evaluations — proving that what we say about our technology is consistent with how it performs. Because our products deliver powerful solutions to many of the analysis, design and business challenges facing water and wastewater utilities, they sell themselves. Backed by our unparalleled high-touch customer support, they also deliver dramatic value. We are proud that MSD has expanded Innovyze’s role and we look forward to participating in the District’s success.”
