BWSSB to use SCADA to monitor water supply at pumphouses

The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board will be extending the use of its supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system to monitor the water supply at various pumphouses. According to the authorities, the system will record multiple parameters, including the quality of water discharged, the water pressure, and the number of hours each pump set has run. Earlier, this technology was used to monitor sew­age flow through sewage treatment plants (STPs).
