This Monday we conducted the planned graphics review meeting with the City and its prime consultant. This meeting was to confirm acceptance of the SCADA screens and layout for the first booster station, prior to our proceeding with cutover of the remaining 12 stations.

It was reported that the existing SCADA system has stopped sending alarm messages completely, and that the City did not want to invest any time or money into the old system. This has given some renewed motivation to moving the booster stations onto the new SCADA system as soon as possible.

Largely, the City was happy with the graphics as presented. A suggestion was made by an operator to add the setpoint ranges to the screens next to the actual values. The pump station number needs to be displayed on all screens.

One of the prime consultant’s engineers was participating in the meeting via a conference call. It was determined it would be best to arrange a separate meeting to address his concerns.
