There’s a lot of talk in the water industry these days about “operating smarter.” But what does “operating smarter” actually mean?
Smart Water Network (SWAN) is the water utility industry’s equivalent to the energy industry’s Smart Grid.
A Q&A with Matthew Gormley and Gerald Dixon of Schneider Electric, who explain the functionality, operational advantages, and cost savings associated with variable speed drives (VSDs).
Phones have now become smart phones, water has become smart water, and cities are now trending towards becoming smart cities, but what does all this mean and how do we effectively make our water infrastructure smarter?
Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system. This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.

With the SCADAPack 500E range, Schneider Electric introduces the first ever remote Programmable Automation Controller (rPAC). The ARC Advisory Group has defined the rPAC as a whole new way to look at remote site automation. An rPAC combines the power of a PAC with the versatility of an RTU.
There are many potential issues that can affect a utility’s water network, including leakage and contamination. Having the ability to predict potentially harmful events that could occur can help utilities not only save money, but ensure that clean water is delivered efficiently and affordably. Download the full case study to read more of the story of how one utility found a solution to its growing distribution network problems.
Portland Water Bureau, more than 100 years old, is a public water utility located in Portland, Oregon. It is responsible for the supply, treatment, and delivery of water to about 935,000 consumers in parts of Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties in Oregon — nearly one-fourth of the population of the state. This service involves approximately 35 billion gallons of water annually. In 2011-12, more than 566,000 of those consumers were retail customers served directly by the utility. Another 368,000 consumers are served by the utility’s wholesale customers, including suburbs of Portland, water districts, and private water companies.
The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans is the water utility serving every household in the New Orleans city limits. The water utility is responsible not only for water treatment as well as sewer and wastewater disposal, but also drainage operations throughout the city.
In 2012, the wastewater treatment plant in Denison, Texas, needed major renovations, as aging equipment and failed system components placed a significant burden on the city’s operating budget. Learn how the city leveraged performance contracting to fund the repairs and achieve more energy- and cost-efficient operations.
By installing a new SCADA system with a single programmable automtion controller (PAC), Monroe County Pure Waters, NY, was able to identify that their main plants and collection systems had sufficient capacity. The new SCADA system allowed them to close several smaller remote plants, eliminating several small-stream discharge points and saving the County energy and other operational costs.
Lee County, FL has a population exceeding 620,000 with 600 lift stations and water wells used to manage its water needs. Motorola MOSCAD RTUs were used to operate 476 lift stations but within five years the MOSCAD system working on the county trunk radio system would no longer be supported when the change was made from analog to digital radios.

Todd Schnick: We’re coming to you live, from Dallas, Texas. This is day two of AWWA ACE 2012 and Water Online Radio. I’m your host, Todd Schnick, joined by my colleague, Todd Youngblood. Todd, we’ve got lunch, and we’re ready to go for the next half of the day.
Todd Youngblood: Too much bunny food at lunch. We got there too late, and all the good stuff, all the meat got picked over. I don’t know what was left.
Todd Schnick: A lot of fellows in this hall. We were left with all the green stuff. That was no good, but we’re kicking off the afternoon section with a really exciting guest. I want to welcome Mark Leinmiller, who’s a segment manager for the Water Wastewater Competency Center for Schneider Electric. Welcome to the show, Mark.
Mark: Thank you very much.
