Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System (October 23, 2006)

October 23, 2006

This week our engineering staff re-installed the hardware required for the alarm notification software. There is a driver issue, however, that we are working with tech support to resolve.

At our last meeting with the City, the subject of how to handle the stalled Phase II contract was discussed. City maintenance personnel pointed out that the Phase II plans did not accurately reflect current wiring at the stations. In some cases, the Phase II plans (completed by an electrical sub-consultant no longer under contract) did not reflect what was desired to be added and eliminated at the site. QDS had visited a typical station several months earlier with City maintenance personnel and verified these were valid issues. There was also a discussion whether the contract documents required the entire station to be re-documented by the Phase II contractor, as current documentation of wiring was inadequate for troubleshooting.

As a follow-up on this issue, another meeting has been scheduled this week with the City and engineering consultants, this time to view a pumping station to compare the Phase II plans with actual wiring and hardware installed at that station.
