InfoWater by Innovyze helps manage recycled water irrigation system, conserve water resources
Innovyze announced that the Napa Sanitation District (NSD) in Napa County, Calif., has selected and deployed the company’s InfoWater to support its large-scale, enterprise-wide, geospatial, water-recycled network modeling and management needs. The purchase will enable the district to address critical planning, design and operational issues with maximum effectiveness, including determining optimal delivery schedules for a user base that includes national label vineyards.
NSD provides wastewater collection, treatment and disposal services to residents and businesses in the city of Napa and surrounding unincorporated areas of Napa County. NSD uses recycled water to irrigate golf courses, vineyards, landscaping, pastureland, parks, playing fields and a cemetery. Its recycled water meets the state highest quality standard, “Unrestricted Use.” InfoWater will provide the district with a complete GIS-centric solution for modeling, managing, operating and sustaining its recycled water system.
“InfoWater is a critical component of our recycled water system planning effort,” said David Martin, NSD reclamation system director. “Using recycled water for irrigation in place of potable or groundwater helps conserve water resources. The software will help us leverage our existing GIS investment to optimize our recycled water system efficiency and performance and achieve our business objectives.”
InfoWater’s network modeling technology addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management and protection. Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, Calif.) and winner of the ArcGIS for Desktop Based Application Award, InfoWater integrates predictive analytics, systems dynamics and optimization functionality directly within the ArcGIS setting. The software also serves as a base platform for advanced smart network modeling, capital planning, and asset management extensions available from Innovyze.
“Progressive utilities all over the world continue to recognize the benefits of Innovyze advanced geospatial smart water network modeling technology,” said Paul F. Boulos, Innovyze president, chief operating officer and chief innovation officer. “InfoWater’s remarkable success is due to its combination of powerful advantages: proven capabilities, rich feature set, state-of-the-art optimization, seamless GIS data exchange capabilities, short learning curve, and track record of successful implementation. All these factors set it apart from the competition by enabling users to complete better projects faster than ever before, with a whole new level of interactivity. This gives them an unbeatable competitive advantage and helps them to thrive. We are proud that NSD has made us a partner of choice in its continued pursuit of water recycling excellence and environmental stewardship.”
