Revolutionary Event Backtracking Analysis Program Dramatically Enhances Contamination Warning Systems

Broomfield, Colorado USA, March 13, 2012 — Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, today announced the worldwide release of InfoWater BTX (BackTrace eXtension), a state-of-the-art geocentric solution for determining contaminant injection locations following successful detection of a contamination event. The indispensable new contamination threat identification tool can greatly assist water utilities in effectively and appropriately planning for and responding to contamination threats and incidents and minimizing potential impacts to consumers.

Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, California), InfoWater BTX seamlessly integrates advanced dynamic water network modeling with sophisticated Lagrangian-based particle (water parcel) backtracking algorithms to help water utilities determine all possible contamination sources in space and time.

Unlike traditional hydraulic and water quality models, which do not track flow paths and are limited to only providing output information at all locations over time, InfoWater BTX runs in reverse time to compute input-output water quality characteristics for all flow paths between input sources and output nodes. The program accurately calculates all flow paths leading to particular output network nodes at a particular time, along with their relative influence on water quality. Armed with this complete input-output information for all paths between sources and output nodes, users can effectively devise and implement response actions such as unidirectional flushing and operational changes to reduce the impact of a contamination event.

InfoWater BTX also provides a range of powerful graphical presentation tools, including color-coded mapping and VCR-style animation, to help users step through an extended period simulation backward in time, instantly visualize water quality propagation, and comprehend the flow-path-dependent water quality processes from contaminated nodes as they are traced back to the originating sources.

InfoWater BTX is part of Innovyze’s comprehensive Contamination Warning System solution portfolio for water utilities. The end-to-end solution portfolio handles all the critical functions of an effective contamination warning system: detection, originating source identification, and consequence management. InfoWater SLM helps water utilities identify the optimal placement of online water quality monitoring sensors. IWLive aids in monitoring and warning of a possible contamination threat. InfoWater BTX provides complete event backtracking analysis (following the detection of a contamination event) and identifies the most likely originating source locations. InfoWater UDF guides the selection of hydrant locations to flush and valves to close. Together, these tools give water utilities worldwide powerful support in designing vulnerability analyses and contamination warning systems that minimize the public health impact of a contamination event and carrying out drills and training to improve preparedness. They can also be effective in hardening water systems and planning responses to contamination threats and incidents long before they occur.

“Our customers have been asking us to give them this important water security planning capability,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon. D.WRE, F.ASCE, President and COO of Innovyze. “We created InfoWater BTX to be the simplest, fastest, most powerful event backtracking tool in our industry, with the highest pound-for-pound return. This is the ultimate approach to helping utilities plan effective responses to contamination threats and incidents. We are proud to introduce another groundbreaking product that will immediately streamline and enhance the invaluable work our users do.”
