Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System, September 13, 2005


September 13, 2005

Business is starting to settle back down after hurricane Katrina. The planned meeting with the primary engineering firm and the City of Baton Rouge maintenance personnel has been delayed until next week due to vacation schedules at the city.

Between now and then, we're looking at retaining 13 of the existing RTUs, requiring firmware upgrades to support the Modbus protocol. RTU capabilities with the new firmware were confirmed with the manufacturer last week. Updated EEPROMS are now being ordered along with the server computers, software, and cell modems, allowing us to move forward with a full SCADA implementation at 13 of the most critical stations. This change of schedule prevents Phase I delays from affecting our software development critical path.
