Remote monitoring helps lower risk and improve operations at wastewater treatment plants. The large physical footprint of wastewater treatment plants renders human monitoring costly and difficult.
By installing remote terminal units (RTUs) at the sites of important assets, managers gain insight into the real-time equipment and environmental conditions across their network.
Armed with constant knowledge of network conditions, managers can more accurately schedule maintenance, allocate resources, and respond to emerging situations. Furthermore, the data collected by the remote monitoring system can be analyzed to yield strategic insights, which can inform future investments. Remote monitoring in wastewater treatment plans, then, provides both immediate and long-term benefits for the overall operation.
