Power monitoring upgrades

West Point Treatment Plant Current Projects

Project description

King County Wastewater Treatment Division has a comprehensive maintenance program for our facilities. As part of our system maintenance, we are upgrading the West Point Treatment Plant power monitoring network to improve reliability of the treatment plant’s electrical systems. These upgrades will also increase resiliency, including connecting existing power monitors throughout the plant, which better allows the treatment plant to analyze data and detect any problems and allows for future connectivity of new devices such as uninterruptible power supply equipment (See our Power Quality Improvement project). The project will improve the power monitoring network quality by creating a dedicated power monitoring communication network, replacing the obsolete power meters with more advanced more reliable power meters, and communicating with all power meters across the plant to support seamless integration with the entire power monitoring system enabling site personnel to extract/analyze data, operate, and monitor the health of the critical assets. This will ensure that the system operates reliably for decades to come.

Project schedule

The project is in the design phase. Construction is estimated to take place 2022 – 2023. The project is planned for completion in 2023.
