Do more better, smarter, faster ... for less, and unlock more value from your water infrastructure

AquaTwin Water

Built exclusively on ArcGIS Pro®, AquaTwin Water is the next-generation AI-powered geocentric digital twin software for safe, reliable, sustainable and resilient water infrastructure. Design and size new water infrastructure, retrofit existing aging infrastructure, provide adequate capacity to fight fires, forecast demands, optimize operations of tanks and pumps, reduce energy usage, investigate water quality problems, plan flushing operations, and prepare for emergencies. And armed with advanced simulation capabilities, you can model contamination threats and evaluate resilience to security threats, climate change or natural disasters.

A comprehensive 64-bit feature-packed modeling and analysis software extension for ArcGIS Pro®, AquaTwin Water lets utilities predict how their water systems will perform during disruptive incidents and determine how to best absorb, recover from, and more successfully adapt to such incidents and increase resilience. Its powerful simulation and analysis tools can help water utilities to explore the capacity of their systems to handle disruptive incidents and guide the planning necessary to make them more resilient over time. Users are now able to proactively solve or prevent problems, make confident decisions, execute quickly on a consistent basis, and plan and shape a better future for their communities.

AquaTwin Water Pro

AquaTwin Water Pro extends the powerful water quality modeling capabilities of AquaTwin Water with the important ability to model complex reactions between multiple chemical and biological species in both the bulk flow and at the pipe wall. It allows users the flexibility to model dispersion in dead-ends and a wide-range of chemical reactions of interest, including, auto-decomposition of chloramines to ammonia, the formation of disinfection byproducts, biological regrowth, combined reaction rate constants in multi-source systems, and mass transfer limited oxidation-pipe wall adsorption reactions.

  • Create and save Queries and Selections using a select or Structured Query Language (SQL) expression.
  • Query from multiple sources including hydraulic/water quality results and external layers (e.g., land use) and databases (e.g., CMMS).
  • Quickly compute available and maximum fire flows at hydrants while maintaining minimum required residual pressures both locally and system-wide to identify where fire protection is inadequate.
  • Fire flows can be computed for a single hydrant, a group of selected hydrants, or all hydrants in a pressure zone or in the system.
  • Quickly compute maximum fire flows at hydrants while maintaining maximum velocity constraint in pipes.
  • Use fast and stable exact non-iterative analytical solutions for fire flow computations as opposed to slower, less reliable iterative numerical solutions.
  • Automatically allocate fire flow demands at junctions/hydrants based on any point (e.g., user classification) or polygon GIS layer (e.g., land user type).
  • Import fire flow demands directly from any database table.
  • Multiple nearby hydrants provide fire flow at the same time for the same duration or at different times and different durations.
  • Two or more fires are occurring at the same time for the same duration or at different times and different durations, at opposite ends of town (i.e., different geographic locations).
  • When a fire engine pulls up to a fire, it doesn’t just hook up to a single fire hydrant. Typical fire engines have fire hoses long enough to hook up to two hydrants simultaneously (w/typical hydrant spacing of <500 ft) to provide sufficient firefighting water. The Wildfire Risk and Resilience Analysis tool automatically groups and allocates fire flows at two nearest hydrants and sequentially analyzes all hydrant groups for the entire selection set (e.g., pressure zone, entire system).
  • Automatically compute maximum available fire flow at the two nearest hydrants flowing simultaneously for all hydrant groups in the selection set.
  • Integrate wildfire planning efforts with water infrastructure planning to improve water system and community resilience and reliability in the face of increased wildfire risk.
  • Identify key risks, areas of concern, and develop hazard reduction strategies that will reduce the impact of wildfire to life and property.
  • Develop reliable and cost-effective actions that improve mitigation, planning, response, and recovery activities.

Earthquakes can be some of the most sudden and impactful disasters that a water distribution system can experience. An earthquake can cause lasting damage to the water system that could take weeks, if not months, to fully repair. Earthquakes can cause damage to pipes, tanks, pumps, and other infrastructure. Additionally, earthquakes can cause power outages and fires. AquaTwin Water automatically:

  • Computes peak ground velocity and repair rate based on the earthquake location and magnitude.
