Cabanatuan City Water District serves approximately 30,600 connections
through a 295-kilometer potable water network in Cabanatuan City in the
Philippines. The commercial, industrial, and education hub of the province,
Cabanatuan is experiencing increasing demand for domestic water service as
the population grows.
With a capital cost of $45,000, the city is combining features of MicroStation,
Bentley Water, and WaterGEMS to modernize its system. This blend of Bentley
technology will serve as the hub for system integration of geospatial data,
network connectivity, and network modeling.
This water supply project serves the town of Ginigathhena and its suburbs in Sri
Lanka. The objective was to supply safe and reliable pipe-borne water from an
intake at Lonarch stream, located about 984 meters above sea level. Raw water
is conveyed under gravity about 2.35 kilometers to the treatment plant. The
design flow of the transmission main is 3,000 cubic meters per day over 20 hours.

Because clusters of residents live in surrounding hills and valleys, elevation
variations in the pipe network created high-pressure zones. WaterCAD was
used to simulate the distribution network. Break pressure tanks and pressure-reducing valves were used in the model at locations with excessive pressures.
HAMMER was used to check for excessive pressure build-ups or surges in the
distribution network and transmission main.
