SCADA Seminar: Leveraging SCADA for Utility Performance Improvement

Do you have timely, accurate information to guide business and operation decisions? Does your SCADA/control system help you handle business challenges and improve performance?

Join the Water Environment Association of Ontario (WEAO) and the Ontario Water Works Association (OWWA) for a specialty seminar entitled “Leveraging SCADA for Utility Performance Improvement.” Learn how leading municipalities ensure that control systems support their business requirements. The full-day learning event will occur October 6, 2011, at the Toronto Congress Centre.

Carl Yates, General Manager Halifax Regional Water Commission, will be the keynote speaker for the event. He will discuss how Halifax leverages their control system for making better decisions related to advanced water processes and managing water loss.

The event will include both a management track and a technology track. Management-oriented sessions discuss the essential building blocks that enable utilities to use control systems for improved decisions and operational performance. During the technical track, participants will learn proven principles of network design, alarm management, security, and standards. A series of case studies will present practical examples from utilities including Toronto, Durham, Ottawa, York, Halton, and Peel.

The event registration fee is $250 for WEAO/OWWA members who sign up before September 22. Registration is available through WEAO. Lunch and coffee break is included.

The event is sponsored by WEAO, OWWA, Westin Engineering and Eramosa.
