Overcoming water & wastewater industry challenges

Improving availability and reliability

Aging infrastructure and growing water supply demand make increasing equipment availability and reliability crucial. HMI/SCADA helps facilitate the corrective action to remediate a potential equipment problem.

Minimizing risk

Managing security and risk at water treatment plants remains a top concern for utility operators. HMI/SCADA-based alarm systems can warn of breaches in the perimeter gates and fencing, sudden failure of critical fixed assets, or contaminant detection.

Reducing cost

Operator errors, equipment failures, and excessive maintenance or chemicals all impact bottom line. HMI/SCADA allows utility operators to respond appropriately to events, such as storm warnings, and quickly resolve situations—minimizing additional costs

Analytics for Engineers in Water and Wastewater | GE Digital

Analytics in Water

Water utilities have no shortage of data – real time and historical. But, getting value out of that data to ease compliance, reduce costs, and drive greater efficiency means using analytics as a foundation for optimization.


Watch this short video to see how GE Digital helped a mid-sized water utility to predict pump failure up to 16 days in advance, using Proficy CSense.
