Broomfield, Colorado USA, November 23, 2005 - MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that the City of Billings, Montana, has chosen MWH Soft InfoWater and InfoSWMM ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) technology as the geospatial infrastructure modeling and management solution for its water distribution and sewer collection systems. The selection is the latest confirmation of MWH Soft's market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial hydraulic infrastructure modeling solutions in North America.
Incorporated in 1882, the City of Billings is in Yellowstone County, the most populous county in Montana. The largest city in the state, its estimated population is 97,253. The city operates and maintains over 400 miles of water lines, 136 miles of storm drain pipes, and over 400 miles of sanitary sewer mains. Billings plans to leverage the power of InfoWater and InfoSWMM for its enterprise-wide GIS-integrated infrastructure modeling and management programs, used to support its comprehensive water and wastewater master planning effort and optimize capital improvement projects.
Built atop ArcGIS with native geodatabase support,
InfoWater and InfoSWMM offer a single comprehensive,
GIS-centric solution for analyzing and managing
the most complex water distribution and sewer
collections systems. A seamlessly integrated geospatial
framework applies GIS intelligence to engineering-accurate
information, coupled with the most advanced numerical
computation, genetic algorithm optimization and
object-component geospatial technologies in the
marketplace. The result is a centralized, multi-function
system that enables world-record performance,
scalability, reliability, functionality and flexibility
within the powerful ArcGIS environment, completely
eliminating the need for inefficient, unreliable
data synchronization, synching schemes, or middlelink
interfaces required by other software. These factors
and more translate to increased productivity,
reduced costs, greater efficiency, and improved
designs - giving water and wastewater utilities
a clear competitive advantage.
