The current supervisory control and data acquisition system was installed in 1999 and needs frequent repairs. Control systems have an expected lifespan of 10-15 years, making parts difficult to find.
Replacing the system will improve remote operation and avoid the need to visit a site when a problem occurs.
The Radio Control and Data project (W 5.0) was combined with this project, creating cost savings. The city’s antenna radio system was replaced at five reservoirs, six well sites, and seven booster pump stations.
