Using Digital Twins To Refine Water Operations

34_Ari_Opdahl

With all the permutations of flow and instrument readings in water and wastewater treatment operations, having the foresight to optimize responses to changing conditions is a challenge. In this Water Talk session, Ari Opdahl, senior product manager with Bentley Systems, offers a better way to manage tools, people, and resources to achieve desired outcomes. Digital-twin technology helps utilities mirror and simulate water-system conditions and performance accurately to model and test better quality-of-life outcomes. Those include closing the infrastructure gap, refining insights from a tsunami of data, and balancing operating concerns ranging from water scarcity and aging infrastructure to rising operating costs and an aging workforce.
