SCADA Water Data

The SCADA system collects data about the both the water reticulation network, and plant located with water facilities. The network information via radio telemetry.

Information currently collected includes;

  • water flow rates at individual highlift & bore pump stations, reverse fill stations, and selected locations within the reticulation network
  • level information for reservoirs, water towers and some chemical storage tanks
  • the motor speed & current (?) of variable speed drives
  • the pH, turbidity & colour of water within and leaving water treatment plants.

It is planned to use SCADA to automate the collection of rainfall data from pluviometers in the near future.
The system could also be used to measure water pressure, but this has not been implemented.
