Florida Utility Partners With SEL to Protect Aquifer

Florida Utility Partners With SEL to Protect Aquifer



Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) constructed a wetland pond at Kanapaha Middle School (KMS) to replenish the aquifer with approximately 600,000 gallons of high-quality water and to serve as an environmental education tool for students.

To provide optimal conditions for the wetland, the water level in the pond must be maintained at an average depth of 12 to 18 inches. The ability to automatically control the water level was lost after the pump controller that performed liquid level monitoring stopped communicating with GRU’s SCADA system. GRU needed a robust pump control solution that could easily integrate into the wetland system to maintain its operation and connectivity.
