  • Ignition Increases Flexibility, Lowers Costs For Two Water Utilities
    Ignition Increases Flexibility, Lowers Costs For Two Water Utilities

    When Park City Water in Utah needed a new system for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and human-machine interface (HMI), it picked the same solution chosen by its neighbor, Mountain Regional Water (MRW) District. Both MRW and Park City have seen significant improvements since switching from their previous SCADA systems to Ignition. MRW saves more than $400,000 per year on energy with greater control from Ignition. Park City saves the equivalent of one full-time employee by using Ignition to automate its reports to a state agency.

    WaterGEMS® Prioritizes Manila Water Facilities For Disaster Resiliency And Contingency Plan

    Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, the Philippines experience frequent earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and typhoons that cause catastrophic losses. Manila Water Company, Inc., prepared a Natural Calamity Risk Resiliency and Mitigation Masterplan to ensure that there is a reliable water supply in the event of a natural disaster for the service area covering the East Zone of Metro Manila (the National Capital Region) and Rizal Province.

    Asset Lifecycle Information Management For Water And Wastewater Networks

    Water and wastewater leaders are unsung heroes. Clean, safe water is essential to human life and to the well-being of the environment, yet it is grossly underfunded. Limited resources lead to deferred maintenance and difficult decisions.

  • Advanced Strategies To Extend The Life Of Your Water Network
    Advanced Strategies To Extend The Life Of Your Water Network

    Water utilities face many challenges including aging infrastructure, constrained resources and revenue shortfalls. Most utilities use various technological resources to manage their assets and increase efficiency. Resources may include Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), hydraulic models, asset management systems, network sensors, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and billing databases. Unfortunately, those resources are often managed in “silos.”
