IDModeling Awarded Training Contract Using 220,000-Pipe Water Model

Arcadia, CA USA – February, 21 2011 – IDModeling, Inc. (IDM) announced today that the Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) has selected the firm to complete a series of Customized, Online Hydraulic Model Training Courses using their 200,000 pipe water distribution system model. The model is calibrated for both complex extended period hydraulic simulations and for chlorine residual.

The online course is the second phase in a series of hydraulic model trainings delivered by IDM to GCWW. The first phase, held at GCWW facilities, introduced hydraulic model software functionality, with supporting documentation that included power-point slides and step-by-step workflows detailing the development and execution of common hydraulic model scenarios. With the groundwork established successfully, GCWW has re-engaged IDM to develop and deliver a highly customized, online course, specifically geared towards the complex day-to-day analyses experienced by GCWW staff. The course is delivered monthly, and is centered around scenarios defined by collaboration between the IDM and GCWW teams, with detailed workflows delivered to GCWW's team of modelers, all online.

"The online training platform has introduced convenience of schedule and documentation, focusing on practical applications of the modeling software while bringing information right to the engineer's desk, when they need it", said Jerry Edwards, P.E., IDM's Vice President of Engineering Services, "It's exciting to see GCWW benefit from this platform, and to help them customize it to meet their unique modeling requirements, experience levels, and water system specifications".

GCWW's water distribution system model is among the largest, and most complex in the country, adding to the importance of the online delivery platform as a light-weight, low-overhead learning environment. GCWW's hydraulic model runs in MWH Soft's H2OMap Water, and contains approximately 200,000 pipes totaling nearly 3,100 miles of pipe.
