The City of Dallas Water Utilities provides water to about 1.9 million people in Dallas and 26 nearby communities. With a service area covering approximately 699 square miles, DWU maintains some 4,639 miles of pipe, 21 storage tanks, 3 treatment plants, and 23 pumping stations. The organization will use H2OMAP as the basis for developing a comprehensive GIS-based solution for modeling and managing DWU’s drinking water infrastructure and optimizing its capital improvement projects.
The network modeling technology of the MWH Soft geospatial software suite addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management and protection – delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Drawing on the most advanced numerical computation and object-component geospatial technologies, it effortlessly reads GIS datasets; corrects network topology problems and data flaws; extracts pertinent modeling information; and automatically constructs, skeletonizes, loads, calibrates and generates credible network models with astounding speed. The suite also allows users to share mission-critical GIS and modeling information in real time over the Internet and corporate intranets. Once models have been established, users can easily run and simulate various conditions, pinpoint system deficiencies, and determine the most cost-effective improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance.
