SCADA systems are one of a number of critical data systems in use in the modern water/wastewater utility. The impact of these systems extends well beyond the day to day monitoring and control of facilities. The data gathered is a critical business asset for a utility, and careful consideration needs to be given to how SCADA information is gathered, utilized, and interfaced with other critical utility information assets.  A SCADA Master Plan, as part of an overall technology planning effort, will set the stage for the effective use of SCADA information. Traditionally a SCADA Master Plan has been viewed as a simply a collection of projects and budgets for the upgrade of individual SCADA systems. A comprehensive plan will build on these items, developing a comprehensive road map for how SCADA information is utilized within the overall utility enterprise.

This presentation describes a structured approach for developing a comprehensive SCADA Master Plan for a Water/Wastewater Utility as part of an overall technology planning effort. The end result is a plan which sets the direction of a Utility’s SCADA system for the next 5 to 10 years. The experiences of other utilities in applying this master planning process will be discussed, and excerpts from actual SCADA Master Plans will be presented.
