An increase in extreme weather events combined with stricter regulatory requirements is making it more difficult than ever for municipalities to keep pace at their wastewater operations. As a result, asset management has been thrust into the spotlight.

The good news is advancements in digital twin technology make it possible to more accurately simulate extreme events, which can lead to vastly improved planning and smarter investments.

David Totman, director of asset management with Innovyze and the president of the AFCE Utilities Engineering and Surveying Institute, and Carol Browner, a member of the Innovyze board of directors and longest-serving administrator of the U.S. EPA, discuss the impact of the digital twin in this Water Talk interview at WEFTEC 2019.
