As a result of tighter fiscal budgets, municipal utilities are more frequently moving towards facility improvements rather than building new facilities. Work force down sizing is occurring and as a result the operations and maintenance of plants is being neglected. Automated control of these facilities is often one of the principal improvements desired to countermand the increasing demands placed on operators.

The obstacle encountered frequently with plant personnel is the aversion to change and using new technologies. The use of a Personnel Digital Assistant (PDA) not only allows the Operator to view the entire plant processes but is a valuable tool in maintaining control over the processes.

The use of the new system employed for this project resulted in better response time to emergency situations, added convenience or operation, and increased efficiency related to calibration of systems by individual operators.
