Date & Time
Thursday, June 7, 2018, 10:45 AM - 11:00 AM
Water Supplies Department (WSD) had developed a pilot system in the 3rd quarter of 2017 to explore the feasibility and advantages of integrating various data sources, e.g. operational data from the Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) system, data loggers in the distribution network and consumer water meters, on a single platform. This “source-to-meter” approach integrated various data for a more comprehensive analysis. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for water supplies and energy management could be generated and displayed through the system in various forms, for example, on a web site, on a map and in an Excel spreadsheet. This pilot system helped present a more holistic view of water supplies network. It demonstrated the potential benefits and development of “source-to-meter” solution in the operation and management of the water supplies.
