Bentley Systems Tech Preview – Real-time Water Distribution Insights with OpenFlows WaterSight

Tuesday, August 25, 2020 2:00 PM EDT

Bentley’s new water infrastructure digital twin solution, OpenFlows WaterSight, connects SCADA, GIS, hydraulic modeling, and customer information into a single interoperable dashboard. Register for this webinar to see how a scalable cloud-based environment can provide your entire utility access into the detection of critical system and individual asset performance information, enhancing operations and maintenance planning decisions.

Bentley product success consultant Joel Johnson will share new ways to mirror and simulate current water-system conditions and performance, so you can:

  • Confidently share detailed graphics of current network performance, as well as the expected consequences and improvement for actions related to operational and maintenance activity
  • Monitor flow, pressure, and water quality conditions at every point in the system
  • Improve energy efficiency leveraging real-time analyses of each pump and tank, with alerts for when performance is outside of service thresholds

Power vs. Policy; What is Involved in Remote Shutoff for Water?

Wed, Jun 10, 2020 2:00 PM EDT

sensusIntegrated remote shutoff water meters capable of on, off, or reduced flow allow utilities to adapt to policy and provide the power to better manager service connections during emergencies. This presentation will discuss options around the technology and what to look for before deciding if this technology is right for you. Look beyond the hardware benefits and explore more about potential internal policy changes and external programs needed to go along with this exciting new technology available to Water Utilities today.

Using a Smart Utility Network for Water Loss Control Through District Metering and Pressure Monitoring

sensusToday the city is using their Smart Utility Network to do even more; monitoring pressure zones within DMA’s as an alternative method when SCADA can’t be used and monitoring district metered areas on not only the customer meter information but also on the flow meter assigned to the DMA by incorporating the virtual meter too.
This utility’s case study will walk through the deployment strategy and show the impact of using DMA and pressure monitoring in the distribution system.

5 Purchasing Risks Your Organization Faces (And How to Mitigate Them)

In this webinar, we’ll outline the top 5 procurement risks and how your ERP could be making these vulnerabilities worse. Then, we’ll take a deep dive into how you can layer-in the right procurement software-as-a-service (SaaS) products and complement your ERP to mitigate those risks, so that you can focus on what really matters—driving best procurement outcomes.

Building an Intelligent Water System

sensusCity of Walla Walla, Washington, recently completed deployment of their Sensus Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system. The city is now leveraging this system to realize their vision of implementing a Smart Utility Network, powering applications across the water cycle such as pressure monitoring in the distribution system and level monitoring in a creek prone to flooding.

These applications are providing insights and improvements in the areas of non-revenue water, asset management, operational efficiency, and disaster prevention and control.

This presentation will explore their journey from traditional AMI to achieving a Smart Utility Network, and will review specific real-world examples of issues detected and solutions implemented.

The Road to Strategic Sourcing: How to Break the Cycle of Transactional Purchasing and Get Started with Strategic Sourcing

BonfireStrategic sourcing is a proactive, value-based procurement approach that enables organizations to do more with the funds at hand. Unfortunately, it’s far from common practice in most water utilities, where procurement teams are stuck in a cycle of transactional purchasing and bogged down by admin-heavy manual processes. This is a missed opportunity—for procurement teams, utilities organizations, and ultimately the ratepayers they serve.

In this webinar, we chart a path for water utilities procurement teams to get started with strategic sourcing, using the ‘golden triangle’ approach to solving complex business problems.

With expert insight from Jim Baehr of Sourcing Strategies Group, we’ll discuss how teams can expand their capacity and value-add through a strategic, proactive procurement process.

Best Practices for Commercial and Industrial Meter Revenue Assurance

sensus

Large meters in commercial and industrial services represent 40 to 60 percent of a utility’s revenue. Maintaining meter performance is crucial to operations. However, issues such as piping and flow pattern irregularities and gradual wear can cause mechanical meters to lose accuracy, resulting in revenue losses.

This presentation will cover best practices and lessons learned from a utility that not only has an extensive large meter testing program, but whose revenues mainly depend on its large meter population and accurate consumption measurement.
