Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System (June 19, 2006)

By Control Engineering Staff June 19, 2006

Met with city maintenance personnel and prime consultant to resolve some issues concerning alarm notification and reporting. Not much if anything was resolved at the meeting. The city personnel seemed unclear exactly what their needs were, while the prime consultant seemed bent on pushing its own expectations rather than finding out what the city’s needs were.

City and prime consultant both seemed satisfied with graphic design of the screens, with the exception of one minor problem with the resolution of a single symbol.

Began preparation for a second station to go on-line. OPC server has been configured and tested using a second modem and RTU representing a second station. Hope to finish all preparations early this week and field conversion by weeks’ end.
