Wastewater SCADA Modernization Boosts Operational Efficiency While Driving Down Cost - Learn how to do the same



Join Automation World for this free, one-hour educational webinar.
Date: Wednesday, June 22, 2016  Time: 1:00 PM — 2:00 PM CDT


In order to more effectively manage and maintain the county’s sanitary sewer system, which includes 3,500 miles of sewer lines stretching across a 420 square mile area, Pima County Wastewater Department implemented Wonderware's unique HMI Situational Awareness framework during a recent SCADA system upgrade. 

Using the Wonderware solution, the wastewater treatment facility was able to double capacity while operating using the same number of staff. In total, Pima County achieved about a 50 percent increase in overall operational efficiency while driving down the cost of doing business through centralized monitoring and control of the entire wastewater system, including treatment plants and pump stations.
Join us for an interactive discussion with Pima County’s Larry Sawicki and Clyde Pace of EMA, Inc., learn from their challenges, and discover how a modern SCADA system can help your public utility to:
  • Easily consolidate heterogeneous control and data acquisition products into one unified SCADA system
  • Migrate from the manual collection of data and logbooks to more accessible electronic records that meet state, federal and environmental regulations
  • Optimize alarm management using goal-oriented designs, effective window structure, color usage, and actionable alarm management to immediately identify problems before they escalate
  • Implement Situational Awareness to improve decision support

Having a single source of actionable information for operational, engineering and corporate business users allows organizations to move to an adaptive (vs. reactive) model, and allows operators to proactively detect—and fix—abnormal disturbances.
