SCADA

Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) is used in multiple areas of the Public Utilities.

The SCADA system is a computerized control system that can automatically start and stop pumps, open and close valves, display temperatures and pressures, monitor water quality, generate reports, and much more. Thousands of bits of control data are available at the fingertips of the SCADA operator. This consolidation of process information provides tighter quality control than previously available.

The SCADA system is used to:

  • Monitor and control equipment and processes involved with drinking water production and wastewater treatment.
  • Gather data that is regularly reported to government agencies, such as the EPA and Department of Health.
  • Report rainfall amounts and water supply levels miles away.
  • Automatically start and stop pumps at unmanned, remote wastewater lift stations to extend pump life and ensure waste flow continues to the treatment area.
  • View water pressure at many points in the service area to quickly identify and locate damaged pipes.
  • Track equipment run times for the use of maintenance scheduling and equipment replacement budgeting.

All of this acquired data is used to increase efficiency within the operation of Public Utilities.

Our mission is continuing improvement: additional SCADA control improvement projects are underway.
