H2OMAP Sewer and InfoSewer Water Quality Options

Intoduction: InfoSewer is used worldwide by municipal engineers and planners to create detailed, accurate models of their sewer infrastructure systems. These models enable users to evaluate the effect of new developments, zoning changes, and other additional loads on system flows; pinpoint current and future problem areas; predict overflows and backups; and determine how to best restore needed capacity lost to infiltration and inflow with the least rehabilitation. In addition, users rely on these models to compute hydrogen sulfide generation and corrosion potential; analyze the rate of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) exertion; track sediment movement and deposition; calculate the amount of pollutant transported to the wastewater treatment plant; and assess pollutants’ impacts on receiving waters. Extensive scenario management along with domain and facility management functionality makes the program capable of analyzing existing or proposed sewage collection systems.  It has a Steady State, Design and EPS run modes and includes many of the same Arc Map tools that exist in InfoWater and InfoSWMM.

You can model 8 options in H2OMAP Sewer and InfoSewer to simulate various aspects of Water Quality (Figure 1). If you make the base scenario no water quality you can have the same network, same loading but different aspects of water quality in seven child scenario’s (Figure 2). The parameters for each water quality option is shown in the Quality Tab of the Simulation Options Dialog.
