This Water District originally had No SCADA and No automation of any kind. Over eight years ago we installed Motor control Centers with Variable Frequency Drives on two new pumping plants for, the first, closed loop level control system. Shortly thereafter we completed the radio linked SCADA system back to the district office. The SCADA portion of the project was designed to be expandable as the District added automated control structures. Over that eight year period we have provided the district with automation and SCADA monitoring on an additional twenty-four sites both, pumping plant and control gates. Below are photos of two select sites at the district, Headgates and Flow monitoring.
Build-out of existing SCADA system, installed by Innovative Controls (IC), to include flow automation of head gates. Existing manual operation of site required 4Hr. round trip from office to head gates for adjustments.
EMI gate hoists were modified to accept control from Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).
