Development Consultant was awarded the infrastructure design and engineering
contract for the $1 billion Hi-Tech City project in Uttarpara, India. Phase 1
involved the design and engineering of a sewer network system covering 350
acres, including interconnecting manholes, gravity flow, pressure flow, canal
crossings, wet well storage, pumping, and a sewage treatment plant.
SewerCAD features such as sanitary sewer load estimation, hydrographs,
patterned load, and flow monitoring helped save considerable time by enabling
engineering decisions to be made more quickly and accurately. This greenfield
project has been conceptualized without disturbing the environmental and

Airport Master Plan Energy Analysis
Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, United States
Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport retained Freese and Nichols to update
its water and wastewater models, and analyze the capital improvement plan
for possible cost savings. Energy cost analysis revealed that adding an elevated
storage tank would reduce energy consumption by about 51 percent, saving an
estimated $117,000 per year and justifying the cost of the tank.
Freese and Nichols used WaterGEMS and SewerGEMS to convert, develop,
and calibrate the existing models. The model conversion and calibration tools
made the process cost effective and yielded a model compatible with Bentley
products already in use by airport engineering staff. WaterGEMS demonstrated
the cost savings of the elevated storage tank, which eliminates the need for
pumping during low-demand periods.
