Jeff McGuire and Mike Nealy of ProPump & Controls are wrapping up a unique SCADA system for the Town of Surf City, North Carolina.
Surf City will soon begin pumping treated sewage effluent to several lagoons in the area known as Juniper Swamp, approximately 10
miles west of town. The effluent will be sprayed out over several hundred acres of pine forest, and will be able to meet much of
the Town's disposal needs for years to come. ProPump & Controls technicians interfaced with the existing SCADA system at the Surf
City Water Treatment Plant and set up a telemetry system to control 2 - 200 HP pumps at the Juniper Swamp pumping system, along
with numerous large solenoid control valves spread throughout the spray fields. Solar powered control panels were provided to power
and operate each valve, and monitor valve status. Additional work included setting up a new SCADA terminal at the Town's waste water
treatment plant, to provide system control from the plant, as well as to monitor pumps and processes within the plant.
Keith Owens is heading up a ProPump & Controls team charged with commissioning a Flowtronex irrigation pump station on a unique rainwater
collection project in downtown Washington, DC The project is designed to provide up to 3,000 GPM for a new irrigation system for the National
Mall. The pump station is situated in a vault 20 feet underground of the Mall, and the system includes rainwater collection cisterns,
VFD pump controls, high level filtration and ultra-violet equipment to sanitize irrigation water being pumped to the Mall turf areas, which
receive an incredible amount of public traffic.
