City of Hamilton – SCADA Master Plan & Standards for Water and Wastewater

City of Hamilton

SCADA Master Plan + Implementation

Eramosa Engineering completed a system wide SCADA system upgrade for the City of Hamilton. The project was a 3-year program intended to develop a master plan, standards and implementation plan for the City’s water and wastewater facilities.

$25 M

140 remote sites

200+ PLCs

4 treatment plants

City of Hamilton water tower

The City of Hamilton has approximately 140 remote sites and four (4) treatment facilities.  The water treatment and distribution systems operate independently of the Woodward water treatment plant.

The project included a review of the available SCADA technologies, identification of network requirements, creation of standards and the complete detailed design for the implementation of the new City wide SCADA system.

Eramosa, as the lead consultant, partnered with Westin, XCG and R.E. Poisson Engineering for this project. As a component of the project, the Eramosa team completed an asset inventory data collection and database for the 140 facilities providing the City to jump start their CMMS implementation.

The team responsibilities included process control narrative development, P&ID development, electrical and control panel design.  PLC and HMI/SCADA software standards were developed and utilized for development of PLC and HMI programs. 

The project also involved on site supervision and commissioning as upgrades were completed at the facilities.
