Houston Chooses VTScada Software for 400 MGD Water Purification Plant Expansion
The City of Houston, Texas, has chosen VTScada as the sole SCADA software platform for their Northeast Water Purification Plant (NEWPP) Expansion Project that began construction in the fall of 2017.
To help meet the growing drinking water demands for the fourth largest city in the US, the utility is expanding the NEWPP to 400 MGD, making this one of the largest active capital water projects in the US at a cost of $1.4 billion. When completed, it will occupy acres and include twin 108” diameter water mains.
The selection was made by the City of Houston consultant, in collaboration with the Houston Waterworks Team, a joint venture between CDM Smith and Jacobs Engineering (formerly CH2M). After an extended evaluation of features, licensing, and support, the team chose VTScada from a short-list of four leading SCADA products.
