GAs Help to Model and Manage Water Distribution and Sewer Collection in Billings

Yesterday it was announced that Billings (the largest city of Montana with the population of about 100k) chose MWH Soft InfoWater and Info SWMM ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) technology as the geospatial infrastructure modeling and management solution for its water distribution and sewer collection systems. Billings operates and maintains over 400 miles of water lines, 136 miles of storm drain pipes, and over 400 miles of sanitary sewer mains. A quote from the press release:

Built atop ArcGIS with native geodatabase support, InfoWater and InfoSWMM offer a single comprehensive, GIS-centric solution for analyzing and managing the most complex water distribution and sewer collections systems. A seamlessly integrated geospatial framework applies GIS intelligence to engineering-accurate information, coupled with the most advanced numerical computation, genetic algorithm optimization and object-component geospatial technologies in the marketplace. The result is a centralized, multi-function system that enables world-record performance, scalability, reliability, functionality and flexibility within the powerful ArcGIS environment, completely eliminating the need for inefficient, unreliable data synchronization, synching schemes, or middlelink interfaces required by other software. These factors and more translate to increased productivity, reduced costs, greater efficiency, and improved designs - giving water and wastewater utilities a clear competitive advantage.


The press release can be found here. A few related posts discussed the use of genetic algorithms in the software of MWH Soft, see for example here.
