BlueWater tool for Macomb

January 2, 2018

Since the Red Run Drain flows through Warren, does Macomb actually, really, truly know, the exact water volume entering the county (from all the inputs) ? Why Not ?

Macomb County Public Works Office (MCPWO) started development of BLUEWATER. It will be the county’s new Web-Based Data Review Tool. This program will integrate with the current SCADA platform (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition ) along with the NEXGEN asset management program. The goal, is to make this software available, to all of the communities. How much info will the general public be able to see, perhaps city council members, for the checks/balances of actual flow/billing remains to be seen.

The old software program was called MCMARS (Macomb County Meter Analysis and Reporting System). It allowed Macomb to manage, analyze, and report on sanitary sewer meters and their data. Originally developed in 2008 , it needed updating/replacement.

Johnson & Anderson Inc. along with the Web UI development, Ghadys, began the development of the new application, BlueWater back in 2015.

Some of BlueWater functions:
• Management of sewer flow and rainfall meters
• Management of linear combinations of sewer flow meters into virtual meters
• Recording of data from sewer flow and rainfall meters from Wondenvare historian
• Import / export data
• Chart and tabularize data
• Create Average Dry Weather Plow (ADWF) patterns to be used in sewer flow correction and RDII calculation
• Develop sewer flow meter correlations to be used in sewer flow correction
• Addition tools to assist operators in correcting sewer flow and preparing sewer flow for billing reports
• Output individual sewer flow meter reports and community based reports for the purpose to billing communities based on sewer flow volume

As many people are quite aware, Oakland Counties actions impact directly upon Macomb residents lives, recreation and property.  Data provides insight and the power to make decisions.
