SCADA System Upgrade for Suffolk County DPW

Modern analytics empowers smarter wastewater management



Suffolk County Department of Public Works, Long Island, New York

Outdated monitoring and control systems for the county’s wastewater pumping stations costing thousands of dollars per year in labor costs for call-outs and false alarms, and equipment repair and replacement costs as a result of ineffective inventory management.

Suffolk County DPW partnered with G.A. Fleet Associates and Xylem to install Flygt Outpost SCADA system to leverage the Internet of Things as a way for seamless communication between controllers and effective real-time reporting. Xylem also installed MultiSmart® Intelligent Pump Station Manager (iPSM) to collect data and prioritize issues that require a technician call-out.

Xylem’s Flygt Outpost SCADA system and MultiSmart® iPSMs gives Suffolk County the ability to proactively manage their sewer systems, saves $182,000 per year in unnecessary labor cost and allows the DPW to more effectively manage their inventory, resulting in a cost avoidance of $24,000. Suffolk County’s installation of their first Concertor pump resulted in an additional $6,000 in capital savings and ongoing operational savings.
