Canada, 12 April 2006: Bentley Systems, Incorporated has announced that the City of Trois-Rivières, Canada, has selected Bentley’s water resources modeling software to support the operation and management of the city’s newly consolidated infrastructure.
Due to recent mergers among six municipalities in Quebec, the water, sewer, and storm drainage networks of the City of Trois-Rivières encompass nearly 2,000 kilometers of piping. To successfully operate and manage these independently designed networks as a single massive network, the city needed to integrate the data from three separate network models and diverse databases.
The city also chose WaterGEMS and SewerGEMS because of their ability to efficiently evaluate potential rehabilitation and expansion scenarios. The extensive scenario management capabilities of these products will help the city prioritize its infrastructure spending, improve levels of service, and prevent overflows in the city’s sanitary and combined sewers.
