AquaTwin Water V3.6 Boosts Water Infrastructure Resilience with State-of-the-Art Power Outage (Black Sky Event) Analysis

Key Highlights

New version lets users quantify resilience and compare the benefits of different utility response strategies and long-term mitigation strategies. Water utilities and their engineering consultants can now:

  • Carry out compromised source water analysis.
  • Identify reduction in water service availability over time.
  • Calculate reduction in quality of water provided.
  • Compute tank draining and pressure loss over time.
  • Establish hydraulic connectivity: compute critical hydraulic pathways in the network in order to better understand what customers would be affected by shutdown over time.
  • Identify bare minimum levels of emergency service.
  • Direct/isolate flow to critical customers.
  • Formulate and implement optimized water conservation plan.
  • Plan and develop mitigation strategies (e.g., additional up power, local generation, interconnections and agreements, etc.).


Aquanuity, Inc., the leader in strategy-led simulation-powered water infrastructure digital twin software, continues to innovate and quickly expand upon its best-in-class products and platform with the release of AquaTwin Water Generation V3.6 for ArcGIS Pro. The new version, just one week following V3.5 release, provides new state-of-the-art power outage/black sky event analysis capabilities and further substantiates the company’s strategic commitment to breakthrough innovation for its customers.

A comprehensive 64-bit feature-packed modeling and analysis software, AquaTwin Water is the next-generation AI-powered geocentric digital twin software for safe, reliable, sustainable and resilient water infrastructure. The software can effectively be used by both water utilities and their engineering consultants in all phases of the water infrastructure asset lifecycle. Design and size new water infrastructure, retrofit existing aging infrastructure, provide adequate capacity to fight fires, prepare wildfire resilience plans, 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 very fast and advanced simulation capabilities, users can model contamination threats and evaluate resilience to security threats, climate change or natural disasters.

“AquaTwin Water V3.6 marks another milestone in GIS-centric water infrastructure resilience analysis,” said Paul Boulos, Chairman and CEO of Aquanuity. “This latest release extends the capabilities of basic hydraulic modeling to be more robust to failure scenarios. By quantifying resilience, the benefits of different utility response strategies and long-term mitigation strategies can be compared and evaluated for optimal planning. We continue to push the technology curve to make it better, faster, easier for utilities to build, operate, manage, and sustain high-performing, highly efficient and resilient water infrastructure systems for success.”
