New FeMn Removal System at Desalination Facility

Enterprise Automation will be implementing the controls and monitoring for a new Iron/Manganese (FeMn) Removal System at Sweetwater Authority’s Richard A. Reynolds Groundwater Desalination Facility. The system will be integrated into the existing control system utilizing Schneider Electric’s Modicon Quantum PLCs and CitectSCADA operator interface software. Scope for the project includes field studies, panel design and supply, control description development, PLC programming, SCADA configuration, acceptance testing, and commissioning. Sweetwater Authority owns and operates Loveland Reservoir, Sweetwater Reservoir, a brackish groundwater desalination facility and deep freshwater wells. Water obtained in each of these areas is influenced by the 230-square-mile Sweetwater River Watershed, a land stretching from the Cleveland National Forest to San Diego Bay.
