Water Treatment Plant

Water Treatment Plant

For this project, a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) was installed to operate the Water Treatment Plant's (WTP) wells and pumps and to maintain tank levels and system pressure based on readings from flow meters and pressure transducers. The WTP system is comprised of multiple Well pumps in multiple Well Fields (located miles apart) that are coordinated to maintain the level in a ground storage tank at the central WTP. The system then uses High Service Pumps (HSP) that maintain water pressure in the system, and also supply a second augmentation plant in off-usage hours. The coordination, automation, monitor and control of all Well fields and both Plants are performed by the use of a DFS PLC RTU and a Hyper SCADA Server central telemetry system.
