Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System (November 17, 2005)


November 16, 2005

The existing RTU manufacturer shipped the completed Modbus firmware revisions, clearing the way for us to get a sample pump station completely up and running on the new SCADA system in the next few weeks.

Because the firmware was a week late, it did not arrive prior to our project engineer leaving on a scheduled 2-week vacation, which means that other jobs take priority now.

Meanwhile, the city of Baton Rouge purchasing department has suggested a "streamlined" approach for the re-request for proposals of Phase I, however purchasing still has not provided any dates to the primary consultant as to when this process can begin and be completed by, thereby hampering our project scheduling.

With the holiday season approaching, we are lowering our expectations for a speedy completion date. Getting things restarted in the second quarter 2006 is looking more likely each week.
