Napa Sanitation District, CA, Selects Innovyze InfoWater Advanced Geocentric Smart Water Network Modeling Technology

InfoWater Deployed to Help Manage Wine Country District’s Rapidly Expanding Recycled Water Irrigation System and Better Conserve Water Resources

Innovyze has announced that the Napa Sanitation District, California, has selected and deployed the company’s industry-leading 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.

Winner of many prestigious industry awards, the Napa Sanitation District (NSD) in the Napa Valley 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.”

Unlike competing products, InfoWater’s innovative network modeling technology addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management and protection — delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA) and winner of the ArcGIS for Desktop Based Application Award, InfoWater seamlessly integrates sophisticated predictive analytics, systems dynamics and optimization functionality directly within the powerful ArcGIS setting. From fire flow and dynamic water quality simulations, valve criticality and energy cost analysis to pressure zone management and advanced Genetic Algorithm and Particle Swarm optimization, the suite comes equipped with everything water utility owner-operators need to best plan, design, operate, secure and sustain their transmission and distribution systems.

The software also serves as a base platform for advanced smart network modeling, capital planning, and asset management extensions. Among these critical applications are IWLive (real-time modeling and forecasting); InfoWater UDF (unidirectional flushing); CapPlan (risk-based capital planning); InfoMaster and InfoMaster Mobile (risk-based asset integrity management and condition assessment); InfoWater MSX (multi-species water quality modeling); InfoWater BTX (event/particle backtracking); InfoSurge (surge/transient analysis and design); Sustainability (carbon footprint calculation); BalanceNet (real-time energy management and operations optimization); PressureWatch (real-time network hydraulic integrity monitoring); QualWatch (real-time network water quality integrity monitoring); SCADAWatch (real-time business intelligence and performance monitoring); DemandWatch (water demand forecasting); and DemandAnalyst (real-time water demand and diurnal pattern estimations).

“Progressive utilities all over the world continue to recognize the benefits of Innovyze advanced geospatial smart water network modeling technology,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, President, COO and Chief Innovation Officer of Innovyze. “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 Napa Sanitation District has made us a partner of choice in its continued pursuit of water recycling excellence and environmental stewardship.”
