MWH Soft, a global provider of environmental and water resources applications software recently announced that the City of Fresno, the State of California’s sixth largest city and its largest inland city, has selected MWH Soft’s H2OMAP Sewer Suite Pro to replace its existing sewer modeling solution. The City of Fresno’s wastewater system serves more than 500,000 customers in the Fresno metropolitan area through 1,400 miles of sewer lines, ranging in size from 6 inches to 84 inches in diameter, and 15 sewer lift stations. 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.

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 and 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. MWH Soft is a global provider of technical and infrastructure software and professional solutions designed to meet the technological needs of utilities, government industries, and engineering organizations worldwide.
