Pittsburgh, PA - Orange County Water District (OCWD, Fountain Valley, CA) recently awarded Emerson Process Management's Power and Water Solutions industry center (formerly Westinghouse Process Control) a contract to automate its new advanced water treatment facility.

Known as the Groundwater Replenishment (GWR) System, currently under construction along the Santa Ana River, OCWD maintains and manages the groundwater basin that supplies more than half of the water used by 2.3 million California residents. The project is a joint effort between OCWD and the Orange County Sanitation District.

Under terms of the $1.8 million contract, Emerson will apply its PlantWeb digital plant architecture at the facility, using the DeltaV distributed control system and Foundation fieldbus intelligent field device technology. The GWR System will use advanced purification methodologies including microfiltration, reverse osmosis, and ultraviolet and hydrogen peroxide disinfection, thus becoming one of the first water/wastewater treatment facilities in the country to incorporate smart instrumentation and bus technology into its control design.

System components are scheduled for delivery in three phases, beginning in mid-2004 with completion planned for mid-2007.

Phases will coincide with OCWD's current contracts for treatment equipment: one installation phase for microfiltration equipment, one for ultraviolet disinfection equipment, and another for the balance of the plant.
