AquaTwin Water V3.7 Revolutionizes Water Infrastructure Resilience with State-of-the-Art Earthquake Analysis Functionality

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. New version automatically:

  • Computes peak ground velocity and repair rate based on the earthquake location and magnitude.
  • Uses default or user-defined seismic fragility curves for water system components.
  • Calculates total water loss volume to leaks and breaks.
  • Color-codes pipes based on magnitude of water loss volume.
  • Color-codes pipes based on failure probability.
  • Prioritizes resilience‐enhancing actions.


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 V3.7 for ArcGIS Pro. The new version, just two weeks following V3.6 major release that debuted new-to-the-world outage planning, provides new state-of-the-art earthquake analysis and further substantiates the company’s strategic commitment to breakthrough innovation for its customers. AquaTwin Water can now be effectively used to evaluate resilience under earthquake and power outage scenarios, assess fire-fighting capacity and pipe criticality, and prioritize repair strategies.

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 and power outage 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 V3.7 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 disaster and 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.”
