Colorado Springs Utilities Streamlines Operations With Centralized PI System Data

One of the nation’s largest four-service utility providers, Colorado Springs Utilities supplies energy and water to over 450,000 people. The state-certified laboratory of the Water Quality Assurance section processes over 14,000 samples and 80,000 analytes per year from eight watersheds, seven finished water treatment facilities, 38 finished water reservoirs, four post-chlorination stations, two wastewater treatment facilities, and over 2700 miles of pipeline. Along with Jeannette Ortiz, David Mora, Environmental Scientist Lead of Water Quality Assurance explained to the 2015 OSIsoft Users Conference how Water Quality Assurance has rolled out a PI System data infrastructure to increase data accessibility and decrease operational costs and reporting times.
