The Challenge to Utilities
As an operator of a water or wastewater utility, you have a lot on your plate. Not only are you required to provide reliable and affordable water and wastewater services, you must also be compliant with a number of government regulations and ensure that your operations are sustainable.
Water utilities require efficient methods of engineering, optimization of energy supply, and contextualized compliance monitoring as they seek to expand availability of water to the general population at an affordable price.
Global challenges abound. How can engineers create and reticulate clean and affordable water and wastewater services in developing countries using standard technologies? How can engineers balance the new cost equation between energy and water quality that energy-hungry reclaiming and desalination technologies introduce? What intelligent infrastructure is available to allow automation vendors to deliver real-time data in for multi-user operations decision-making?

Addressing the Challenges: Engineering Efficiency and Continuity
The greater the number of plants an engineer has to design, control and rollout, the less effective are traditional procedural and list-oriented engineering tables. Replacing those with online template object-oriented systems can result in dramatic savings.

System Automation Comes With Its Own Set Of Challenges
The key challenges faced by water and wastewater professionals with their critical automation systems are eliminating unplanned downtime caused by failures and quickly and accurately diagnosing problems when they occur. Aside from reverting to time consuming and expensive processes such as manual operation, one of the most challenging areas is dealing with control system failures in SCADA, HMI and Historians. Problems range from unexplained application slowdowns to outright application failures, which often go undetected for some period of time, to PC or server hardware failures. In today’s environment, losing data or re-constructing historian timelines to provide accurate records is a critical part of the regulatory framework.
Maintaining Continuous Availability While Reducing Complexity And Risk
For many of the water and wastewater organizations across the world, Stratus has been an important solution partner as they seek to modernize their infrastructure while navigating the above challenges.
