Bentley’s water product experts and local users will demonstrate how Bentley’s portfolio of hydraulics and hydrology modeling software – for analysis, design, and operations of water distribution and wastewater collection systems – helps improve the reliability, efficiency, and sustainability of water and wastewater systems.

  • Find out how to plan water systems intelligently as populations grow to ensure that infrastructure is renewed or expanded adequately to supply potable water and collect wastewater
  • See how to save on project costs and reduce operational and engineering costs
  • Learn how integrating SCADA data and hydraulic models improves decision making for both operators and engineers/modelers

Session 1:
 Improved Engineering and Operations of Water Distribution and Wastewater Systems

Bentley users around the world are relying on decision-support tools for their water distribution and wastewater networks in order to improve their knowledge of how infrastructure behaves as a system, how it reacts to operational strategies, and how it should grow as population and demands increase. In this session, specific user examples from the Be Inspired Awards will be discussed, including how their projects improved water and wastewater system reliability, efficiency, and sustainability. 

Session 2: Long-term Planning for Water and Wastewater Systems

Long-term capital and master plans are essential for a well-managed water or wastewater system. However, it can be difficult to prioritize capital improvement priorities, or even determine the size and scope of future projects.  This session will introduce a series of engineering tools to help water and wastewater professionals create capital and master plans. These tools make it easy to prioritize capital improvement projects, and develop detailed and hydraulically accurate plans for future system expansion.

Session 3: Complementing Your SCADA Data for Effective Forecasting and Operations

SCADA systems provide operators with a “live” snapshot of the water distribution system. However, when it comes to predicting how the system will operate in the short to medium term, operators need more than just SCADA data. This session will introduce a hydraulic modeling system that helps operators ‘predict the future’ – from analyzing pump schedules to minimize energy cost, to determining if there is enough system capacity to deal with a planned shutdown during a peak day.
