Pennsylvania’s Lehigh County Authority Adopts InfoWorks CS to Manage its Wastewater Infrastructure

Jan 09, 2012

Innovyze announced that the Lehigh County Authority (LCA), Pennsylvania, has selected InfoWorks CS for managing its wastewater facilities.

Located in southeastern Pennsylvania with the city of Allentown as its county seat, Lehigh County is positioned in the corridor between Philadelphia and New York City, with quick and easy access to both major metropolitan areas. LCA provides wastewater collection service for ten municipalities through a regional system of interceptors, as well as sewage collection and treatment services for individual communities where public wastewater systems are needed.
“InfoWorks CS is a very powerful and comprehensive network modeling and simulation tool that will greatly assist us in planning level capacity analyses and in optimizing capital improvements for our sewer system,” said Michael Barron, P.E., Senior Project Engineer for LCA. “The software provides the flexibility, features, and computational speed to meet our dynamic sewer modeling challenges, and do so more quickly, without sacrificing the accuracy demanded by such complex projects.”
InfoWorks CS allows engineers and planners to produce fast, accurate and robust fully dynamic hydraulic modeling of any complex urban collection system network. Its capabilities encompass full modeling of backwater effects and reverse flow, open channels, trunk sewers, complex pipe connections and ancillary structures. Offering exceptionally fast and stable simulations, InfoWorks CS facilitates the swift modeling of total networks or any sub-network. Users may simulate models of up to 100,000 nodes with confidence that the results will be as accurate as those for far smaller models—making it a clear choice for the world’s leading wastewater utilities.
An essential tool for identifying and justifying cost effective infrastructure improvements, InfoWorks CS also provides a practical method for operational — 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.
“The Innovyze family of advanced sewer network modeling products continues to be a standard for the global wastewater industry,” said J. Erick Heath, P.E., Innovyze Vice President, Director of Americas Operations. “LCA manages a complex sewer system, and we are proud that they consider our powerful tools the best choice to help meet their business challenges.”
