The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system monitors and controls our:

  • water distribution network including water reticulation, reservoirs and pump stations
  • sewage collection and treatment network
  • SCADA communication network. 


The SCADA system is critical to Unitywater’s ability to provide reliable and efficient water supply and sewage treatment services across an area of more than 5700 square kilometres, by:

  • enabling us to monitor and control the entire network from one location
  • saving time and resources
  • minimising risk of human error.

A major upgrade of Unitywater’s SCADA system was recently completed.

    Saving Tips
  • Kitchen Tip #3

    Save water by keeping a jug of drinking water in the fridge. Many of us will let the tap run until the water becomes cool enough to drink. The discarded tepid water goes right down the drain. Ensure that you are not wasting any water by putting the jug under the tap before you turn it on and cooling the water in the fridge so it is ready to drink at any time.
