Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District is implementing a system wide replacement of their Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. The District’s approach started with developing SCADA system standards that build the foundation for a system that meets staff needs across multiple departments including Engineering, Operations, Maintenance, Information Systems, Communications, and Management. The standards include High Performance Human-Machine Interface (HMI) concepts, the new industry standard for HMIs. High Performance HMI allows operators to quickly assess the status of their water system without having to drill into the SCADA system and do data analysis. Actionable information is made available at a glance from key HMI screens. The resulting SCADA system standards will be used to guide the SCADA system implementation efforts to:
- Provide a consistent look and feel in the HMI for all district facilities
- Enable operators to make well-informed decisions to proactively manage the water system and respond to emergencies faster
- Make it possible for other departments to access information and track metrics against operational efficiency, water quality, and customer service goals. This presentation summarizes the District’s SCADA system standards, and the process used to develop them.
