How to Monitor Water Treatment Sites

Imagine that you're the operator at a large water treatment plant for the local community. Maintaining high-quality water for the community is an extensive job that requires regular physical monitoring of the equipment and recording the outputs, flow rates, dosages, etc. This constant monitoring keeps you from fulfilling all of your other job responsibilities. Imagine how much easier your job be if you had the water treatment monitoring technology to automatically do the functions of this job - freeing your time to take care of your other responsibilities?

This scenario highlights the challenges faced by operators at water treatment plants. You don't have to suffer - water treatment monitoring technology exists to save you valuable time to focus on other tasks and prevents water mishaps from causing thousands, if not millions, of dollars worth of damage.

What does it take for effective water treatment monitoring?

Don't make the mistake of choosing the wrong water treatment monitoring system. Here are some key features you need to make the right choice:

A DPS Telecom success story

Chris LaVay, tasked with the responsibility of providing safe water for his Sonoma, CA community, wanted a SCADA solution to overcome the challenges he faced at his water treatment plant. Mr. LaVay spent too much time attending to tedious monitoring tasks and felt his plant wasn't secured properly when he was away.

"If we just had some analog sensors in the right places, it would save me a tremendous amount of time," he said. When there's a problem, Mr. LaVay's NetGuardian sends him a page and he immediately goes and fixes the problem. With DPS solutions in mind, Mr. LaVay hopes to "retrofit" his current alarm system. "It could save us millions of dollars..." he says. For more, read the water treatment monitoring case study.
