Rancho California Water District Distribution System SCADA Upgrade

By July 1, 2012 January 21st, 2016 Projects

The Rancho California Water District (RCWD) has contracted Enterprise Automation to upgrade their water distribution system’s existing SCADA system to a Vijeo Citect-based system with an enterprise Historian. RCWD’s distribution network includes approximately 140 remote sites with Schneider Electric M340 PLCs and I/O. The legacy SCADA system consists of a range of software components which require several specialty communications drivers. Enterprise Automation is tasked with implementing the SCADA system with a single software platform.

Enterprise Automation’s scope of work includes: legacy architecture reverse engineering, programming specification, computing and virtualization specification, network design, Citect programming, acceptance testing, and commissioning. The SCADA system includes a centralized automatic pump station control routine that maintains water level in district zones while minimizing energy expenditure. Remote access will be provided by a next generation firewall (NGFW) with two factor authentication.
