Setup of the cell modems progressed better than it has in the past, requiring only 3 engineering hours to configure 6 modems. Verizon low – level technical support was able to resolve communications issues. We got the name and direct number of their technician for future reference.

Engineering staff performed the field conversion of the second pumping station to the new SCADA system last week. This will be 100% complete with another brief site visit. We plan to convert one station per week until the 13 stations where existing RTUs will be re-used are complete. Our goal is to convert stations in one site visit, minimizing the time to complete the job. A third pumping station conversion is planned for later this week.

We are still awaiting the prime consultant regarding the City’s requirements for alarm notification and reporting.
