Call for participation

Water and Waste Water treatment is regulated in South Africa and the department of Water and Sanitation has mandated the assessment of treatment works in terms of compliance to its Blue Drop and Green Drop initiatives, and automation ranks highly in the scoring. Progressive developments in Automation and Control, as well as the maturing of advance control methods and solutions, provide a compelling reason to deploy these on our Treatment works.
