California Sewer District Uses Smart Network Modeling for Sewer Overhauls
Sacramento sewer utility looks to remodel complex sewer system
Innovyze announced that the Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) in California has selected InfoWorks ICM to meet its sewerage modeling requirements. The purchase will give SASD access to advanced and comprehensive collection system modeling and management applications.
SASD provides local sewage collection service to more than 1 million people in the Sacramento region. It manages 4,300 miles of sewer pipe and 104 pump stations.
“SASD is committed to continuous improvement of our system and rigorously monitors our system performance,” says Ligaya Kohagura, P.E., senior civil engineer at SASD. “We have started using system within our capacity management and system analysis group because it provides advanced hydraulics combined with cutting edge technology. It also means that we can run more modeling iterations as the calculations are farmed out to our data center, freeing up our modeler’s computers for other tasks.”
A sophisticated tool for importing, tracking and auditing large amounts of highly complex data, the system allows the development of cost-effective, innovative solutions to engineering challenges as well as a complete understanding of the processes involved. Multiple simulations can be scheduled across a pool of workstations with results returned to a single location, making for highly effective use of computing resources.
