"We are confident that Optimatics provided us with the optimal solution for our project. We are very happy with the outcome and will have no hesitation in engaging Optimatics again in future optimization projects."
Through the power of optimization, Optimatics enables water and wastewater utilities to provide optimal water services.
Benefits gained by clients in working with Optimatics include:
“I was really impressed with the optimization analysis performed by Optimatics on our Bakersfield system master plan. I was initially surprised by results that were generated for the pump station and delivery main configuration at the new plant - we were planning to go down a completely different path. Having seen the results I can see that it is a better approach for Cal Water. I am excited about the opportunities for applying optimization to enhance our system in the future.”
Tim Treloar - District Manager
California Water Services Co., California, United States
"We are confident that Optimatics provided us with the optimal solution for our project. Of particular note was the ability of Optimatics to deal with the complex looping aspects of the irrigation system. To manually model a looped system would be very difficult but having Optimatics undertake this meant that we were provided with an option that was not initially considered in detail. We are very happy with the outcome and will have no hesitation in engaging Optimatics again in future optimization projects."

"We used Optimatics to achieve substantial cost savings over the design of pipe networks using traditional methods and feel that the OGA is the most powerful tool available today for obtaining suitable and robust solutions whilst maximising savings."
Andrew Sinn - Pipeline Project Infrastructure Manager
Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water, Victoria, Australia
“It was amazing the number of options and alternatives we were able to consider using Optimizer WDS. We got value for money, and are confident that we can defend our final design choice no matter what. The combination of the right people, the right process and the right technology were the key to this project’s success. Optimatics staff were responsive and engaged throughout the project, and integrated seamlessly with our team. There is no way known the project could have progressed this far in such a short amount of time without Optimatics’ involvement. Everything went extraordinarily well.”

"By far the most interesting aspect of the study was the range of solutions the GA technique generated. This allowed the District to review potential combinations of facilities which were not considered as part of the District's (original) master planning process."
Laura Jacobsen - P.E., Planning Manager
Las Vegas Valley Water District, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
"In addition to cost savings, BSU benefited with improvements to areas we did not realize needed upgrading. The GA choices for new storage and new pipe alignments resulted in some unexpected selections, and much less pipe overall in the final solution."
Patrick C. Jennings II - Director of Engineering
Bonita Springs Utilities, Bonita Springs, Florida, United States
"Genetic algorithm pipe network optimization is by far the most significant advance in distribution system design and operation in the past 40 years. It used to be, 'when in doubt, build it stout'. You can't do that anymore. Optimization allows management to take an active role and look at things like operations, cost and sequencing in the planning and design of water systems."
Terry Farrill - Systems Engineer
Fort Collins-Loveland Water District, Colorado, United States
"Optimatics solved complex and integrated problems to develop a long term master plan for Auckland's Trunk Water Main System. This provided Watercare with the confidence and context to continue with the implementation of major capital works."
Dawie De Vaal - Principal Planner Water
Watercare Services Limited, Auckland, New Zealand
"Optimatics’ software is very powerful. With all the challenges in the Murray system, there is growing pressure to look at variations to optimise systems and process our problems faster. Running BIGMOD and Optimatics’ software together will allow us to significantly increase the number of options that we can consider in trying to find optimisation outcomes for the river management challenges that we are working on."
David Dreverman - Executive Director River Murray
Murray Darling Basin Authority, Canberra, ACT, Australia
"Gold Coast Water engaged Optimatics to use the GA technique to refine our planning in the Southern Gold Coast Area. The commission resulted in a significant reduction in capital costs for a new Water Supply Zone and a major reduction in operating and capital costs for Trunk Infrastructure augmentations across the region in real terms. We have no hesitation in recommending them to other authorities."
