The consequences of a pump malfunction going unnoticed can be devastating. More than just aving an alarm otification system, it is essential to have the right system in place. This anuscript will discuss how to select the most secure delivery platform for WWTP and Pump station applications. We will compare landline, cellular wireless and M2M wireless platforms and help the reader to understand when each of these platforms makes the most sense for a given application.

On January 15, 2006, in Los Angeles, a pump malfunction went unnoticed. 1.5 million gallons of raw sewage flowed onto local streets and into the ocean, shutting down beaches, halting the local economy and levying millions of dollars in lawsuits (SFGate.com, 2006).  In the pump station where this problem originated, pump monitoring systems had been up and running, but failed. More than just having an alarm notification system, it is essential that one chooses the most secure delivery system for their particular application.

THE BASICS OF RTU TECHNOLOGY
Remote Terminal Units (RTU) provide pump monitoring performance on-demand, spotting pump problems before disaster strikes and ensuring optimum pump performance.
