Kentucky wastewater utility selects InfoWorks ICM for combined sewer system

CTBR Staff Writer Published 10 November 2011

The Louisville and Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), Kentucky’s municipal wastewater utility, has selected Innovyze's InfoWorks ICM platform to fulfill its sewerage and drainage modeling requirements within its combined sewer system in the US.

The purchase enables MSD to access the advanced and comprehensive collection system modeling and management application in the industry.

InfoWorks ICM breaks new ground by enabling integrated catchment modeling on a platform that incorporates both urban and river catchments, the company claimed.

MSD senior engineer Justin Gray said the utility's combined sewer system is complex, and planning accurately for new infrastructure to achieve overflow reduction and flood relief can be difficult.

"InfoWorks ICM modeling platform enables us to integrate a surface grid over the sewer system, our 29-mile flood protection system, as well as the Ohio River and Beargrass Creek systems, which can heavily influence the function of the combined system," Gray said.

Innovyze is a provider of wet infrastructure business analytics software solutions designed to meet the technological needs of water/wastewater utilities, government industries, and engineering organizations globally.

MSD is responsible for a wastewater collection, stormwater drainage and flood protection system that serves almost three quarters of a million people.
