Abstract:

The Sacramento Area Sewer District (District) is in the final stages of implementing a new Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for their 103 pump stations. While implementing this new SCADA system, the District faced many challenges and obstacles, such as developing the SCADA system requirements, designing the networking system, testing station communication, and cutover to the new SCADA system. Implementing a new SCADA system has provided the District with valuable experience that can be shared with other sewer agencies that may also be in the process of replacing their SCADA system.
