Dec. 2, 2003

The city of Oceanside, Calif., Water Utilities Department provides water and wastewater services to more than 165,000 customers. The Water Utilities Department asked EMA Inc., to design a new control system for its Buena Vista lift station.

When completed, the new system will increase efficiency and effectiveness of operators/managers by providing each real-time information such as pump throughput and key operation parameters. This project is part of the Water Utilities ongoing productivity efforts, for which the Water Utilities Department was recently recognized as a recipient of the AWWA Gold Awarded for competitiveness achievement.
