FlowWorks Receives Very High Marks For Our WEFTEC Exhibit

The 2011 Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference was a huge success for FlowWorks. Not only that, we received very high markings on the WEFTEC 21-point Exhibiting Effectiveness Evaluation tool, an observation and evaluation conducted by a team of trained evaluators directed by Jefferson Davis, president of Competitive Edge. During the show, each booth was observed and evaluated in three main categories: Overall Exhibit Presentation, Product/Service Presentation, and Exhibit Staff. FlowWorks received above average markings on all categories!

FlowWorks at IWEA 2011, Booth #47

FlowWorks is looking forward to participating in the 75th Annual Indiana Water Environment Association conference at the Westin Exhibit Hall in Indianapolis, Indiana this November 16th and 17th.

FlowWorks president, Timothy Hicks, will be attending and says, “We have a lot to offer the water and waste water utilities of the Midwest. Our ability to easily and securely bring people and data together to solve problems like combined sewer overflows (CSOs) is being noticed. Now that Cincinnati is on board, we are getting lots of interest throughout Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. We figured it was time to go to Indianapolis and support IWEA.”

FlowWorks is a powerful suite of online data collection, monitoring, analysis, and reporting tools that is showing signs of becoming indispensable for utilities, municipalities and consulting engineering firms.

The IWEA is committed to protecting and preserving Indiana’s waterways through education. FlowWorks will be among 111 exhibitors at the Westin. 2011 IWEA attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • See the latest products and services
  • Learn about latest practices, technologies, solutions and regulations in the water quality field
  • Earn training credit hours (TCHs) or professional development hours (PDHs) by attending technical sessions, participating in tours and for time spent at the exhibition
  • Network with fellow water professionals

The IWEA show is pretty much the last Water Environment show of the year, and the last of (14) trade shows FlowWorks will have attended this year alone! When at the show, please be sure to stop by Booth #47 and say, “Congratulations”.

Join FlowWorks at NEWEA

FlowWorks is excited to announce our participation in the 2011 New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA) Annual Conference and Exhibition, January 23 – 26 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Now New England’s largest water quality conference, the event has been held annually since its formation in 1928 to create a forum for knowledge and technology exchange within the wastewater field.

FlowWorks provides a solution for public works officials and engineers inundated by flow management data. At NEWEA, our experts will demonstrate the powerful new web platform and solution for gathering, managing and understanding data.

FlowWorks Analysis Software is a powerful suite of online data collection, monitoring, analysis, and reporting tools that are considered indispensable by utilities, municipalities and consulting engineers. In fact, it was encouragement from New England-area public works officials that prompted FlowWorks to exhibit at NEWEA.

FlowWorks reporting and analysis software enables users to efficiently manage their data for water and wastewater conveyance and treatment, drainage and creek system monitoring, rainfall and climate stations, and industrial applications—all through a secure webpage.

This year’s program features over 30 technical sessions with a wide range of various topics that show practical applications, specific project experience, and lessons learned in all of the relevant disciplines in the wastewater profession. Some of the technical sessions that current or potential FlowWorks’ client may be interested in include:

  • CSO/Wet Weather I – Wet Weather Issues: Planning Considerations in CSO Control – Session 2
  • Collection Systems I - Identification and Management of Infiltration/Inflow – Session 7
  • CSO/Wet Weather II – Spring 2010 Wet Weather Issues – Session 8
  • CSO/Wet Weather III – Mitigating Wet Weather Water Quality Impacts – Session 11
  • CSO/Wet Weather IV – CSO Reduction and Management Through Systems Controls –  Session 28

 FlowWorks will be among over 180 exhibitor displays that will be available to the 1,800+ engineers, consultants, scientists, operators and students the event consistently attracts. Attendees can enjoy a number of opportunities:

FlowWorks in the UK

FlowWorks Team Makes a Splash at the WaPUG Autumn Conference

The FlowWorks team is home after a successful trip to the United Kingdom for the Wastewater Planning Users Group (WaPUG) conference.

The primary topic for discussion during the two-day wastewater and urban drainage event in Blackpool was “What does the future hold—the next five years.”

FlowWorks President Timothy Hicks flew into the UK a few days ahead of time for meetings and to attend the Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring (WWEM) tradeshow in Telford before picking up FlowWorks Operations Manager Craig Kipkie at the Manchester Airport. The English roads made for adventure as the two missed the turn onto the M6 and found themselves traversing the rural roads of the Wirral. After some hasty map reading, they made it through the Mersey Tunnel and onto the streets of Liverpool, where they were able to locate an excellent pub set against the back wall of Goodison park. Once they were fed, it made for a fun and scenic excursion, Hicks said.

Safe and sound in Blackpool, the FlowWorks team met up with colleagues from Detectronic and IETG, owned by ADS, the firm’s partner in the Seattle Public Utilities Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) project. There was much discussion about upcoming projects and plans for using FlowWorks.

Hicks and Kipkie led numerous demonstrations, including what was easily the largest demonstration of the show Thursday evening when they shared online data, live via the FlowWorks site, to a crowd of about 20. The team continued to offer demonstrations and answer questions even as the show was being cleaned up around them on the last day.

The team also spent time with Detectronic and IETG folks, teaching them the inner workings of the FlowWorks platform—so much so that both firms have been designated as FlowWorks Technical Experts since they now possess a depth of knowledge about the tools and how to effectively employ them.

“All in all, it was a fabulous trade show,” Hicks said. “Three days of really good conference.”

The tradeshow was a unique opportunity to connect with the UK market. The market is highly sophisticated, since the level of modeling going on nationwide is uniformly high and very different from that of the United States because it is operated by ten large, privatized water boards. The result is that all firms in the industry are working ultimately for one or more of the ten water boards.

Hicks highlighted plenty of positives, weather aside, and thoroughly enjoyed the trip, he said,

“We had a really great show and met exactly the people we needed to meet and had great conversations and demonstrations with many of them. The people were awesome, the food was great, the venue was good for the purpose, Blackpool was marginally acceptable and the weather was awful. Short of fixing the weather and attracting so many more of the RIGHT kind of attendees that the event outgrows Blackpool, I am not sure the organizers could have done anything more”

Look for FlowWorks at the WaPUG Conference again next year.
