Innovyze adapts city water, sewer plans to population growth

Innovyze announced that the city of Hanford, Calif., has chosen Innovyze’s InfoWater and InfoSewer software as the foundation for the General Plan update and for critical decisions on growth planning. The software will be used for updating the city’s drinking water, sanitary sewer, and storm drainage systems master plans, as well as for supporting the preparation of the Urban Water Management Plan to meet California Water Code requirements SB 610 and AB 910.

Established as the county seat for Kings County, Calif., Hanford has a population of approximately 55,000, with an average growth rate of 2% to 3% per year. Growth is anticipated to increase the population to 70,177 in 2020. The city’s drinking water system is comprised of 203 miles of main lines, 15 water supply wells and 3.5 million gal of storage tanks. Its sanitary sewer system consists of approximately 212 miles of main lines and 22 pump stations, and its storm drainage system comprises approximately 56 miles of main lines, 30 pump stations and 181 acres of drainage basins.

“We selected InfoWater and InfoSewer because they have the power, functionality, and full-range capabilities we need to effectively integrate all our water and sewer network modeling activities directly with our GIS to increase productivity and create seamless workflows,” said Hanford Deputy Public Works Director and City Engineer John Doyel, P.E. “We were also impressed by the software’s ease of use, flexibility, and value, as well as the excellent customer support and track record of Innovyze.”

Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, Calif.) with native geodatabase support, InfoWater and InfoSewer offer a single, comprehensive GIS-centric option for analyzing and managing water distribution and sewer collections systems. Using these predictive tools, utilities can simulate and evaluate various conditions, pinpoint system deficiencies, and determine cost-effective improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance, as well as meet vital climate change and sustainability challenges.

“Innovyze offers by far the most comprehensive selection of ArcGIS-centric hydraulic modeling and management solutions in the water and wastewater industries,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, president, chief operating officer and chief innovation officer for Innovyze. “These critical tools are designed to help our customers do their jobs better, faster and at lower cost. We’re proud to know that our InfoWater andInfoSewer solutions will be helping the city of Hanford build a foundation for success in the decades to come.”
