Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System (May 10, 2006)

05/10/2006


We have a new project engineer on board that we are working to get up to speed on this project. Fortunately, he has considerable experience in this area, and expectations are he will be up to speed in short order.

We are working toward incorporating write access (the ability to override booster station automatic control from the SCADA system) and approval-meeting-requested changes into the initial station to prove these prior to replicating to the 12 other booster stations. Write access has been disabled pending direction from the City regarding its security requirements. It was decided that only three people would have write access, for which a supervisor login password will be required.

The prime consultant's project manager is having some difficulty keeping all parties focused on completion of this project. Numerous entities' approvals are required, including the City's purchasing department, the City Council, Department of Public Works management, as well as sewer operations management.

Still no contract in place with a vendor to provide the PLC and local HMI hardware.

We understand that the prime consultant has reviewed our written request for price adjustments to the contract, and that we will receive a call shortly from their lead systems engineer to discuss this.
