Boulos, Ph.D., Hon.D.WRE MWH Soft’s president and COO, said. “The increasing adoption rate of our state-of-the-art, industry-leading solutions in the Middle East is a powerful indicator of the value they provide our customers in this water-scarce region.

We are proud to offer the high-performing software that will enable this prominent agency to set itself apart, enhance its infrastructure management, effect maximum savings and build a foundation for success in the decades to come.”
