The District's Board of Directors approved the lease of a Supervisor Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. The SCADA system will allow the District's staff to remotely monitor and control the water distribution and wastewater collection infrastructure. The District's Operations Team will be able to monitor the water level in the water storage tanks and either turn well pumps off or on depending on the water level. Other features of the system include being able set the automatic turn off of a pump based on either the gallons it has pumped or a time setting.
SCADA will also collect and log data that the District's staff can only presently gather by going to each site. The system will send an alarm to the District's staff if it detects an abnormal reading. For instance, it will send an alarm signal if there is a sudden drop in water pressure which may be an indication of a broken water main.
The Board of Directors approved a five-year lease agreement with Browns Hill Engineering and Controls to install the SCADA system. The monthly cost for the system is $4,635 which includes all maintenance costs during the term of the lease. Browns Hill is currently working on the system installation.
