Haestad Methods Secures Key Account with Brazilian Water Utility
Haestad Methods announced closing a strategic sale with Sanepar, one of the largest water supply and wastewater treatment companies in Latin America, which serves more than seven million residents and over 95 percent of the population in Paraná, Brazil.
The Brazilian utility selected Haestad Methods' WaterCAD and SewerCAD water resources modeling software to conduct design analysis, risk assessment, and remedial activities.
