Houston SCADA Systems Audit Systems
Many water and wastewater treatment plants located in the Houston area require the use of supervisory control and data acquisition systems (or SCADA) and related instruments.
They can perform control functions faster than humans and respond much more quickly. They notify operators of upcoming events or issues that have occurred. They can also archive past data to provide trending and reports to help better understand what is needed in the future.
These systems are critical to plant operations. Failures can lead to noncompliance, costly chemicals, electricity waste, bypass, and other operational problems.
Most SCADA systems are set up and forgotten about until they become a problem. Problems are dealt with on a "get it up to running now" basis when they arise. The maintenance of the instrumentation is limited to calibration. Often, the system is not part of any capital or life-cycle programs.
SCADA and control systems have mission-critical functions. It is important to ensure their reliability. These systems can be maintained in compliance with the design by following basic maintenance procedures.
System Maintenance for Water Treatment SCADA Systems
These systems must be maintained by water and wastewater treatment operators. These are the minimum items that must be taken into consideration when maintaining a system.
