Optimatics, the world-leading provider of infrastructure planning software that enables water and wastewater utilities around the globe to avoid billions of dollars in costs while ensuring optimal performance, has been selected by the City of Tulsa, Oklahoma for use in assessing alternative infrastructure upgrades for the City of Tulsa’s Southslope Wastewater collection system.
Utilizing the Optimizer software, project firm Tetra Tech along with City staff, will assess how the collection system can be operated and upgraded to adequately cater for existing and future flows.
Optimizer will be used to help identify the optimal combination of improvements in the collection system; ensuring all hydraulic design criteria are met for the least overall cost.
“Fundamentally, the objectives outlined by Tetra Tech for this project, are precisely what our software does for any water utility” said Dr. Joshua Cantone, Optimatics Product Manager. “For Tulsa, we understand that potential improvements include infiltration and inflow reduction, flow diversions, conveyance infrastructure, storage and changes in the way the system is operated.”
Optimizer, a cloud-based optimization software solution, comprehensively analyses wastewater and stormwater collection systems by evaluating hundreds of thousands of asset options and capacity combinations against multiple objectives such as cost, hydraulic performance, energy, and water quality. In contrast to traditional approaches which combine best engineering judgment, trial and error and limited scenario evaluations. Optimizer automates the scenario analysis process and produces many potential combinations that meet the desired requirements. Optimizer allows planners and engineers to focus on effective results and avoid costly overdesigns.
