OptoNews: SCADA system for smaller water/wastewater districts

Posted by Jean Femia on Apr 12, 2017 5:13:08 PM

Remote and rural areas can be a problem for smaller water/wastewater treatment districtsWhen you're a smaller water/wastewater treatment district, it can be difficult to fund the SCADA systems you need.

All water/wastewater operations have to be strictly monitored and their data stored for reference, no matter the size of the district. 

In addition to system cost, many smaller treatment districts have equipment installed in remote and rural sites, and these sites are much more difficult to connect than those in a city.

Hilly terrain and obstacles can foil wireless communication. Cellular communication can be cost prohibitive.
