SCADA and Telemetry Network Upgrade for Warrumbungle Water

Further improvements are about to get underway for the Warrumbungle Water Supply with the approval of work for the SCADA and telemetry network.

“The SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) and Telemetry Network Upgrade project will improve the water systems in place across the Warrumbungle local government area, with 43 existing water and sewer sites upgraded and 11 sites having new systems installed,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “The project will see all water operations brought onto the one system.”

“Warrumbungle Water’s telemetry system is a valuable asset that allows for remote communication between water infrastructure units, such as reservoirs and pumping stations, to staff and computer systems. This system is crucial for monitoring and controlling vital equipment to provide safe and secure water across the Shire,” said Cr Doolan.

“Another benefit of this project is that it will decrease the response times in reaction to potential water and sewer incidents by sending alerts directly to staff who can assist with preventing water quality and supply issues occur,” Cr Doolan explained.

“The Telemetry Network Upgrade project is managed by Infrastructure NSW and co-funded with Council under the Safe and Secure Water Program, which is administered by the Department of Planning, Infrastructure and Environment.”

“Council would like to thank the Safe and Secure Water program for funding this project, as it will allow us to secure and improve our water systems for our residents,” Cr Doolan concluded.
