Over the next six months, Shoreline Water District will be working closely with a local Lynnwood engineering company to upgrade the portion of our existing telemetry system that is connected to five of our critical components—including Booster Station Numbers 1 and 2, Supply Station Numbers 1 and 3, and the District’s Headquarters. What is a telemetry system and what does it mean to you? We’re glad you asked!
A Telemetry System allows us to monitor and operate key components remotely. For example, one portion of the water system loses power, the telemetry system notifies District personnel and automatically turns on emergency back-up power for critical components that have onsite power. The above photo illustrates one of the many comprehensive displays from our Telemetry System.
