The City of Haverhill, Massachusetts keeps a close watch on its water infrastructure, operating both Water and Wastewater Divisions. Water quality is constantly monitored to make sure that it meets both state and federal drinking water quality standards at all times.
With GE software, the City was able to move from a manually intensive operation to a much more efficient software-based mobile operation, which afforded its plant with much more flexibility and cost savings. The operations teams can see everything that’s happening at the plant from a remote location and receive alerts to changes in the water operations without a strain on human capital.
"With GE’s [software] you can dial in the plant – get it set up and you don’t have to watch it as closely. It was all manually controlled before – all hardware based and it took a lot of attention by the team to maintain," says John D’Aoust, Plant Manager, City of Haverhill’s Water Division.
The solution also delivers advanced analytics to model data for high-flow situations such as potential threats brought about by severe weather—enabling the teams to get a real sense of how the plant will perform under certain conditions.
