Lowndes County Utility Department
Valdosta, Georgia, USA
Challenge: Antiquated monitoring and control systems for the county’s water towers and wastewater collection pumps, costing thousands of dollars per year in unnecessary labor costs for callouts and false alarms, and pump repair and replacement costs as a result of an ineffective preventative maintenance program.
Solution: Lowndes County Utility Department partnered with Xylem to install MultiSmart Pump Station Managers (IPSM) to collect data and prioritize issues that require a technician callout. Additionally, Xylem provided Flygt Cloud SCADA service to leverage the Internet of Things as a way for seamless communication between controllers and effective realtime reporting of system data.
