This paper describes the innovative Program Management approach used to navigate a four-year, 120 million (CAD) Process Control System (PCS) upgrade program and deliver a solution to help the City of Toronto achieve an operating cost reduction of 36 million (CAD) per year. The program was comprised of the design and implementation of SCADA and associated control systems, as well as the replacement/addition of mechanical and electrical equipment for water and wastewater treatment plants, wastewater trunk collection, and water transmission. The scope included developing common practices, specifying standard automation equipment, replacing and updating the equipment installed across all water and wastewater treatment facilities, and working closely with a large number of consultants and contractors. All of this work occurred while the plants continued to operate and meet all regulated treatment requirements.
