    The Control Room at Moccasin Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant is the hub for communications, data, and control of not only all its treatment processes, but also of its remote pumping stations, and combined sewer overflow facilities.  The Control Room was recently upgraded to replace a mix of antiquated, insecure and unreliable SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and radio communication hardware and software, inconsistent programming, poor ergonomics, and inefficient use of space.  Plant network control systems as well as that for remote sites such as pumping stations, which were outdated and completely isolated from each other, were replaced as part of this upgrade.

    Project leaders will review the “before” and “after” facilities and systems, showing the removal of old technology and its hardware, selection and implementation of a new HMI (Human Machine Interface), improvements to reporting processes to reduce paper form data entry, maximization of the use of space for operators and offices, and provision for secure remote access to the HMI and historical data server for plant management.

    The Tour is limited to 20 visitors - please register here.

    PPE:  Visitors must wear closed-toe shoes, and safety glasses will be required (bring your own if you prefer).  Wear work-appropriate clothing.

    ENTRANCE AND PARKING:  Enter at the main gate and obtain directions from the Scalehouse Operator to the Operations and Control Building.  Parking is free.

    Lunch is not provided at this tour.  We expect that 1 PDH credit can be issued afterward to members who request it upon sign-in.
