Atlantic First Nations Water Authority (AFNWA)

Eramosa continues working with Atlantic First Nations Water Authority (AFNWA) with being awarded the development of SCADA standards for water and wastewater facilities. The SCADA standards will include standard PLC control panel designs, standard network architecture designs, development of standard PLC base programs and HMI applications, as well as associated documentation and testing.

The SCADA standards will promote consistency in design and implementation across all the facilities and facilitate ease of remote monitoring and control. This comes out of the SCADA Master Plan that Eramosa completed for the AFNWA in 2021 and will be an integral part of the AFNWA’s water and wastewater design standards for future projects and upgrades.

We are pleased and excited to be working on this project and continuing to build our relationship with the AFNWA and the communities in Atlantic Canada.
