Aquanuity, Inc., the leader in strategy-led simulation-powered water infrastructure digital twin software, today announced that the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts (LACSD), California, has chosen AquaTwin Asset software for managing all aspects of its extensive regional wastewater collection system, optimizing rehabilitation and renewal spending, and extending lifespan of critical sewer assets.
The LACSD consists of 24 independent special districts serving about 5.5 million people in Los Angeles County. The service areas cover approximately 850 square miles and encompass 78 cities and unincorporated areas in the county. The agency operates and maintains the regional wastewater collection system, which includes approximately 1,400 miles of sewers, 49 pumping plants, and 11 wastewater treatment plants that transport and treat about half the wastewater in Los Angeles County. Collectively, LACSD treats about 400 million gallons of water per day and, over the last 60 years, has been the nation’s largest producer of recycled water.
AquaTwin Asset is fundamentally changing the way water and wastewater utilities and engineering firms use technology to plan, design and build safe, efficient, reliable, sustainable, resilient and smarter water infrastructure. This groundbreaking asset management software provides a full and seamless integration of powerful digital technologies including industry-leading ArcGIS Pro® (e.g., asset visualization, management and maintenance); AI/ML (e.g., leak/defect detection and localization, virtual condition assessment, root cause analysis, demand forecasting); criticality analysis; network simulation (e.g., fire flow and water quality calculation); predictive analytics (e.g., asset failure prediction); and remote sensing (e.g., SCADA and sensors data). This unique combination of unmatched capabilities and decision intelligence ushers in a new era of water infrastructure management, accelerating digital transformation of traditional wet infrastructure management into intelligent simulation-driven management.
Built exclusively on ArcGIS Pro®, AquaTwin Asset lets utilities automate inspection work, measure asset performance, evaluate infrastructure capacity shortfalls under population growth and climate variability, pinpoint assets at highest risk considering both likelihood and consequence of failure, identify root causes and patterns, and prioritize repair and replacement activities. It also enables them to prolong operational lifespan and value of aging assets, predict future asset performance, optimize capital planning, and secure business continuity resilience. Users are able to maximize their assets’ life cycles through sustainable infrastructure strategies and investments, making it possible to achieve the operational efficiencies and the future they envision while bettering their communities.
“Water utilities are quickly recognizing the unprecedented business value and benefits of AquaTwin Asset,” said Paul F. Boulos, Chairman and CEO of Aquanuity. “The fact that progressive utilities like LACSD chose Aquanuity as its solution partner clearly demonstrates the superiority of our ArcGIS Pro-centric water infrastructure capital planning and asset management technology. We’re proud to partner in LACSD’s success.”
