The construction of two new bedrock wells at the Arkell Spring Grounds in the City of Guelph has recently been completed.  As part of the project, Eramosa Engineering provided SCADA integration services for the two new wells including RSLogix 500 PLC and GE Proficy iFix HMI programming. GE QuickPanel OITs were also installed at three existing wells in addition to the two new wells to provide both local monitoring functions and redundant data logging. A new well field control strategy was implemented as part of the project which included five wells at the Spring Grounds. All five wells now function together in response to changing reservoir levels at the F.M. Woods Pumping Station. Eramosa also provided site start-up and commissioning services as well as training for the City’s operations team. The new well field control strategy will provide added benefit for the City as a new Operation Testing Program (OTP) is implemented in order to assess the effect of increasing the production from the Arkell Spring Grounds.
