  • Emergencies: Preventing, Preparing, And Responding
    Emergencies: Preventing, Preparing, And Responding

    Population health is a primary concern of water utilities, whether water demands are typical (daily demands) or an out-of-the ordinary event occurs and threatens the continuous, safe supply of potable water. Water utilities must be prepared to respond to emergencies before they occur, and this is where hydraulic modeling can be particularly useful.

    Advancing Management Of Urban Water Infrastructure

    A wide range of issues can disrupt the normal functioning of an urban water system, such as storms and other natural disasters, pollution, physical damage, cyber incidents, aging and insufficient infrastructure, and rapid urban growth.

  • Leveraging Water Network Data For System Management Prioritization
    Leveraging Water Network Data For System Management Prioritization

    KUB's water system has experienced 30 percent to 35 percent non-revenue water over the past 10 years; hard-to-find underground leaks are the big culprit. Reducing leaks improves customer service, increases operational efficiency, reduces expenses for chemicals and power, and has other benefits.

    Traditionally, water system operators have relied on SCADA systems to provide insight into their networks.

  • 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.

Video: Understanding VTScada Architecture Video: Understanding VTScada Architecture

Designing SCADA systems can be a challenge. When developing or updating a SCADA system, it is important to consider which devices it will need to communicate with, how and where the application HMI is required, as well as the disruptiveness of component downtime or missing historical data. With these items, one can start the process of planning their application architecture. Of course, it is good to consider that the architecture should be flexible enough to support the progressive updating.

Unleashing Smart SCADA Unleashing Smart SCADA

When it comes to the future of utility management, every arrow points toward greater adoption of 'smart' systems. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is smart, in a sense, but the mere existence of a SCADA system at your facility won't maximize efficiency and optimization. The capabilities and opportunities available to utilities through data and analytics are going largely untapped, according to two experts who joined Water Online for Water Talk, but a new initiative could help unlock its ever-growing potential.
