Water Control System Upgrade
The water supervisory control and data acquisition system controls Hermiston water system.
|PROJECT ID:||W 4.0, W 5.0|
- Replaces the control systems at each of the city’s five reservoirs, six well sites, and seven
booster pump stations
- Replaces computers and installs graphical user interfaces that allow monitoring of water
- Includes new programmable logic controllers, hardware and software
- Remote access systems will also be included
WHY IT’S NEEDED
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.
