Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
Purpose: Provide real-time information to District field personnel about canal levels and current operations of the District’s pump stations to improve operational efficiency and improve public safety during flood events. The system will be expanded in the future to allow remote operations and enhanced security.
Description: Project includes installation of towers with radios and electronic devices inside pumping plants to transmit data from canals and pump plants to operators. Facilities include pumping plants No. 1, 2, 3, 8 and District Corporation Yard. Options for installation at Plants 4 and 5.
Funding: Reclamation District O&M funds; Bureau of Reclamation District grant; and future development impact fee funds.
Status: Project has been awarded. Work commenced in November on the electrical panels and at the pump plants with installation completed for Plants 1, 3 and 8. Installation for Plant 2 was delayed due to the need to operate plant during the recent storm events. Installation scheduled to be completed by March. Installation of the radio towers were delayed due to weather until March. System will be fully operational by April 2019.
