New York City to Expand Wastewater Treatment System

June 23, 2011
Innovyze’s InfoWorks CS will allow engineers and planners to produce hydraulic modeling of the collection network

Innovyze, a wet infrastructure modeling and simulation software and technologies company, announced last week that the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) will expand the city’s wastewater treatment system with InfoWorks CS.

NYCDEP’s extensive wastewater treatment system comprises more than 7,400 miles of sewer pipes, 135,000 sewer catch basins, more than 495 permitted outfalls for the discharge of combined sewer overflows and 95 pumping stations that transport wastewater to 14 treatment plants throughout the New York City’s five boroughs. The system processes 1.3 billion gal of wastewater per day.

The expansion system allows engineers and planners to produce fast, accurate and fully dynamic hydraulic modeling of any complex urban collection system network. This encompasses full modeling of backwater effects and reverse flow, open channels, trunk sewers, complex pipe connections and ancillary structures.

An essential tool for identifying and justifying cost-effective infrastructure improvements, the system also provides a practical method for operational control, including real-time control, of the wastewater network.

Other applications include urban flooding and pollution prediction and the modeling of water quality and sediment transport throughout the network. Users may simulate models of up to 100,000 nodes.
