Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Digital Delivery Workflows for Water Infrastructure

Discover how water utilities are turning to digital twins to test and understand the consequences of their decisions without putting their equipment, people, and environment at risk.

Water and wastewater utilities are facing challenges from aging infrastructure to population shifts to climate change. Operating resilient wet infrastructure requires making timely, well-informed decisions every day.

This begins with design integration and interoperability across multiple disciplines which boosts creativity, giving designers and engineers more options to innovate by removing unnecessary tasks, reducing errors and clashes, improving communication (both internally and externally) with stakeholders.

Engineering models are then integrated with city-scale reality models and GIS data which are continuously updated with operational data from SCADA systems, sensors and meters to create a Digital Twin.
