Kingman, AZ, The Heart of Historic Route 66, Selects InfoSewer for Advanced Engineering-GIS Modeling and Management

Kingman, AZ, The Heart of Historic Route 66, Selects InfoSewer for Advanced Engineering-GIS Modeling and Management Smart Water Solutions Will Support Comprehensive Sewer Master Planning Effort

Broomfield, Colorado, USA, October 2, 2015

Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced that the City of Kingman, Arizona, has chosen InfoSewer to manage its sewer collection systems.

Kingman is the county seat of Mohave County. Its Wastewater Division operates and maintains two separate wastewater treatment and collection systems with 198 miles of publicly owned sewer mains and 2,997 manholes. Both plants treat about two million gallons per day and serve approximately 21,000 people.

“We were looking for a comprehensive GIS-centric modeling solution for managing our sewer collection networks,” said Gregory T. Henry, P.E., Kingman’s City Engineer. “The software will help us evaluate our sewer systems’ hydraulic capacity today and in the future, determine most-needed improvements and continue delivering a high level of service to our customers.”

Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA) and supported by industry experts, the innovative network modeling technology of the Innovyze geocentric wastewater software family addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management, operation, sustainability and resiliency — delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Engineers and GIS professionals can easily analyze and simulate various conditions; accurately assess hydraulic and water quality conditions; pinpoint system deficiencies; and determine the most cost-effective physical and operational improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance while enhancing community relations.

“By far, Innovyze offers the most comprehensive array of ArcGIS-centric hydraulic infrastructure 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, Innovyze’s President, COO and Chief Technical Officer. “We design each of these critical geocentric system dynamics tools to help our customers do their jobs better, faster, easier and at lower cost. These advantages lead to quicker, more informed decision making and enhanced capital planning. We’re proud to know that our industry-leading solutions will be helping the City of Kingman leverage its GIS investment and build a solid foundation for success in the decades to come.”

The Group Mind of Software Development, Software Support and Google/Bing @Innovye #SWMM5 #EPANET

I saw this article (from my email) from Business Insider about the "Group Mind"  Here is the very long link URL

Group mind

This idea that individuals prioritise where information is located has led some researchers topropose that digital devices and the internet have become a form of transactive memory. This idea, which dates back to the 1980s, refers to a group memory that is superior to that of any individual.
According to this account, individuals can collectively store and distribute information using a shared store of knowledge. This store of knowledge means that individuals can access details that they may not know themselves by knowing that another individual remembers it, thus enhancing what information is available to them by communicating with other people. In the same way, individuals develop a transactive memory with the internet and rely on it for information by focusing on where details are located rather than the details themselves.
More recent research has extended this line of work and found that saving information on a computer not only changes how our brains interact with it, but also makes it easier to learn new information. In a study published last year, the participants were presented with two files that each contained a list of words. They were asked to memorise both lists. Half of the participants were asked to save the first file before moving on to the next list, while the others had to close it without saving.
One of the many reasons to use software from Innovyze ( is that you get decades of programming experience, decades of product development, decades of product support across multiple platforms and multiple development histories.  We combine the best of MWH Soft, EPA, Innovyze, Wallingford and our own personal histories.  We also take pride in our social media presence.   I will admit that I also use Google a lot to find out what I said before on a particular subject!
