The goal of this project was to provide a supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA) to monitor all of the facilities that serve the Wallkill Consolidated District. This system will allow for faster emergency response times and remote monitoring of critical system processes.

The scope of this project and the interdependence of the facilities in the Wallkill Consolidated Water District required close attention to the order in which the work was performed. The first hurdle was to begin the project quickly enough to properly evaluate the communication viability before tree cover was lost. Next, it was critical that the facilities not be taken offline during the construction process. By maintaining a strict order of tasks, water service interruption was successfully avoided.
