Bay Area Utility Serving 1.4 million people signs multi-year contract with Sedaru

IDModeling, Inc. Headquarters, Arcadia, CA – May 8, 2018 – IDModeling (Sedaru) announced today that East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD), CA has signed a 5-year, $1.7M contract with Sedaru to provide real-time information for its Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Department.

The contract is a milestone in the relationship between EBMUD and Sedaru after extensive business case evaluations, pilot implementations, and technology vetting. Included in EBMUD’s selection was the recommendation that “Sedaru brings a fast, real-time, map interface to office and field staff, providing unique and effective geospatial and data analysis tools. Staff will have instant access to infrastructure information shown graphically on a map and the tools to provide efficient and effective response plans.”

“EBMUD is an industry leader in both thought and practice, and it’s a privilege to have reached this milestone together. We’re excited to help the District advance its daily operations, with real-time capabilities and enhanced access to its enterprise systems.” – Paul Hauffen, President & CEO, IDModeling, Inc.

EBMUD will extend Sedaru’s Operations Management & Network Intelligence (OMNI™) application as the real-time platform to monitor, dispatch, track, trend, and report-on data from across the O&M Department. Sedaru Connect will integrate water distribution system data from the EBMUD’s GIS, work order management system, field collection, leak and shutdown response, valve exercise machine, and leak and pressure sensors. Sedaru Fieldforce will be expanded to more EBMUD field staff for preventative and corrective maintenance. Sedaru Outage will facilitate pipeline leak and break response and support pipeline shutdowns, while calculating water loss and receiving data from leak detection sensors in the field. Sedaru Modeling will support distribution system what-if analyses including fire flows and provide hydraulic impacts for informed shutdown response and planning.

Sedaru Implementation services will train and deploy the software to approximately 170 users including field staff, management, dispatch center staff, and other O&M and engineering staff.
