Better Pump Station Management: It All Starts With Data

By Pablo Calabuig, VP Americas at Idrica / GoAigua


Pump stations are a critical piece of wastewater infrastructure, managing large volumes of water day and night in order to move wastewater throughout the collection and treatment network. Proper pump station management is key to protecting other wastewater infrastructure and can even influence the quality of treatment outcomes. But getting the most out of a pump station requires better visibility and control over the pumps themselves. This means modernizing pump stations, and that starts with data.

Wastewater utilities often generate a lot of data, but rarely make the most of it. Studies have shown that many operations use only 10% of the data generated. To modernize pump stations, plant managers and operators need to know what kind of data they are generating –– from the pump station and elsewhere throughout the network –– and maximize their ability to process, analyze, and take action on that data. This is the first step on a digital journey to more efficient and holistic pump station management.
