SCADA and Lift Station Upgrades Quote


Motion:  To  approve the quote from Kennedy Industries to perform the lift station upgrades as detailed in the quote utilizing the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds that the Township has received, as recommended by the Utilities Committee

Note.  The water and sewer dept. would like to submit the above quote for upgrades to all sewer lift stations using the Federal tax money.  These upgrades would cleanup all the controls and wiring in the control cabinets of the sewer lift stations. They would like to bring over these lift stations to the KISM SCADA system which is the same system as our water system uses.  Attached is the quote in doing this work along with a comparison between KISM and Mission.
