Wastewater Treatment
Water Environmental Services of Clackamas County, Oregon
PEI provided a broad range of services as the primary contractor to Water Environmental
Services (WES) in Clackamas, Oregon for a total of over $200,000. PEI has performed numerous
smaller projects to provide field service during operational problems and upgrades to their
telemetry and SCADA systems. The bulk of the work PEI provided is actually a single project to
upgrade the Kellogg Wastewater Treatment Plant. This project was originally conceived as a
single project but the client could not fund it as a single capitol project so it was determined that
the best approach was to fund it as a series of smaller maintenance projects. This project began
in January of 2003 with work completed by PEI at the end of June 2004. Adam Dodge was the
Project Manager for this client with Shannon Taylor providing field service, drafting and
instrumentation support, and Carl Serpa supporting the SCADA and operator interface upgrade.
This project consisted of resolving a wide assortment of I &C problems at the existing plant and
upgrading the SCADA system. At the onset of the project there were numerous control issues
with systems that were not performing properly and alarms that were not functioning.
PEI performed a complete system analysis resolving the control issues as they arose. PEI worked
closely with the staff at the Kellogg Plant to determine the preferred method of control and
implemented those methods.

The alarm system was completely debugged and tested determining that a significant number of
these alarms had either never been programmed or had been attached to incorrect locations. A
second issue at the plant was that the instrumentation had not been adequately calibrated.

PEI inspected the instrumentation and confirmed the calibration as needed. During this phase,
several devices were found to be inoperable and replacements were installed. The plant also
did not have an accurate set of wiring schematics putting it at a serious risk in the event of a

The final task for the project was to upgrade the SCADA system. Initially the plant had two
operator interfaces which were each running different programs to perform the same basic
tasks. PEI upgraded the version of the Wonderware on a new application that included the best
portions of each program. PEI tested the new program and confirmed its functionality against
the two existing nodes. The new system included redundant I/O servers, a NAD architecture
with only one master application to minimize the maintenance issues, and upgraded
Wonderware features.

Joint Water Commission Control System Upgrade
Portland Engineering was the General Contractor with a $1,538,923 lump sum design/build
contract for a control system upgrade project for the Joint Water Commission (JWC) Water
Treatment Plant in Forest Grove, OR. This project included a system‐wide control system
replacement for a 75 MGD water treatment plant including new PLCs (programmable logic
controllers), operator interfaces and additional instrumentation. The plant was required to
remain operational with only brief shutdowns during the project. Additionally, the plant’s
telemetry system consisting of 24 sites spanning a significant area was replaced and integrated
into the plant control system. The telemetry portion of the project included installing and
utilizing several miles of fiber optic cables, VHF radio transmitters, leased lines and additional
security devices. This project was fully bonded for the installation portion of the work.

PEI designed the control architecture and panel details, provided panels and all parts, hired the
electrical contractor for installation and provided construction management. PEI provided the
water treatment plant with redundant Allen‐Bradley ControLogix 1756‐L55M2 controllers with
1757‐SRM redundant modules. The two processors were synchronized with one processor

providing actual control of the process with the second processor ready to take over if the
primary controller fails. Each subsystem of the water plant is connected to the redundant PLC
processors via remote ControLogix I/O chassis over redundant ControlNet cables. This system
provides full redundancy all the way from the process I/O up to the PLC controller, so any failure
of one component does not cause a system failure.

PEI reprogrammed all control functionality for the water plant and incorporated control
enhancements requested by plant operators and technical staff. PEI developed a new Operator
Interface system using Wonderware Intouch connected to the PLC control system via redundant
Ethernet Adapters. Also included in the project was the installation of a new data acquisition
and reporting system. The system uses Wonderware InSQL and Active Factory reporting tools.
A web server was installed to allow plant personnel to create and view reports and trends for
historical data via a web browser.

This project was a very fast track project requiring extreme flexibility in PEI’s scheduling in order
to complete the first phase (all WTP plant controls) before the high demand season. PEI
devoted the resources necessary to meet the clients scheduling needs. PEI’s system design
allowed portions of the plant to be sequentially upgraded allowing the plant to continue running
with only very short scheduled interruptions.

The 26‐remote telemetry unit controllers are Allen‐Bradley Micrologix with the master
telemetry unit controller being an Allen‐Bradley SLC controller. The radio telemetry system uses
the VHF band to communicate between 24 remote sites and the master site. There are two
dedicated leased‐line telemetry sites as well. PEI provided all coordination with the local phone
company to insure that all old sites were disconnected from the network and the desired
remaining sites received upgraded phone line interface equipment. The PLC controller at each
remote site provides local control and monitoring of the system and sends that information back
to the master site.

                               SECTION 3 – PROJECT TEAM
Project Team Approach
While each of the members of the team have their strengths, PEI employs extensive cross
training throughout their projects such that each staff member learns from each project. This
has several advantages, both for PEI and the client. One is that each member can benefit from
the strengths of the others and gain experience in actual applications. Additionally, this allows
each of the staff to understand the designs and implementations created by the other members
so that all PEI employees can fully support any client during start‐up or troubleshooting.

Each team member will have responsibility for specific project engineering tasks. The overall
responsibility for the coordination of the project resides with the Project Manager. As the scope
of work for each Work Order becomes further refined and the projects proceed, PEI’s Project
Manager will spearhead the execution of all decisions and implementation plans. The
organization of the project will follow PEI’s standard structure with additional aspects specific to
the project.

Our approach allows us to provide a consistent “front end” to the users of our systems. This
applies especially to our OI development and PLC control configuration. We believe that it is
critical that OI screens and PLC programs be developed using a consistent set of standards that
will provide the operators with the information that they need “at a glance”.

Using consistent and functional standards will allow the operators to better utilize the plant,
predict potential problems and run the plant more efficiently.

PEI also expends extra effort initially on the development of fully documented PLC programs
with comments and descriptive addresses. The extra time spent in development more than pays
for itself during start‐ups and, more importantly, during actual operations and troubleshooting
problems and provides for the successful ownership hand off from PEI engineers to operators.

PEI also strives to keep the PLC program as simplified as possible rather than using obscure
programming shortcuts. Again, this extra effort will greatly cut down on the time needed to
troubleshoot operational problems.

Our project engineers utilize a drawing design / draft method where the electrical or mechanical
designer will perform the CAD drafting duties during system design. This approach is inherently
efficient, since additional drawing revision iterations are eliminated. All drawings are reviewed
by our staff to insure accuracy before the drawings are submitted to the client for review.

Every control and instrument panel goes through a system testing approach to perform panel
I/O checkout in the panel shop for all wired points to confirm the panel wiring is correct and that
all channels in the PLC rack functions properly. We then develop and perform controls
confirmation tests (CCT). The CCT verifies the controls system configuration and OI graphics,

                                                                                           Page 20 of 49
                                                         2020 SE 7th Avenue, Ste. 200 / Portland, OR 97214
                                                                     P: (503) 256-7718 / F: (503) 256-7679
                                                                                             CCB# 135739

and is a functional system test. It's similar to a traditional factory acceptance test (FAT), but does
not require acceptance by the client. The client is always welcome to witness the panel I/O
checkout and CCT tests are normally witnessed by the client.

Once the control panels are installed and the field devices are wired we perform a complete
documented I/O check with the actual field devices, followed by a preoperational test. The
preoperational test is a dry run of the system so that we can check logic and functionality on
each loop. When all these tests are complete we will commission the system.

Our field staff is composed entirely of engineers and experts in instrumentation and controls
rather than utilizing less qualified technicians. It has been our experience that this allows us to
include value added engineering into our I & C work for the benefit of the project.

Portland Engineering Inc. (PEI) does not have any ongoing or recent past experience with the
City of Albany however; we are eager for the chance and think it is evident from this proposal
that we have the experience and knowledge to be a valuable addition to the cities control
system integration team.

If PEI is selected as a Category C Consultant of Record we plan on reviewing all existing PLC and
OI application and reviewing all as‐built documentation as it pertains to the control systems in
place as well as touring all facilities.

In preparation for this proposal PEI has reviewed the 2009‐2013 Capital Improvements program.
Our services could be of value at a minimium for the following projects
    • Ongoing WWTP Improvements
    • Oak Creek Lift Station
    • Santiam‐Albany Canal Flow Control Structures
    • Water System Seismic Protection Upgrades
    • Adair Water System Emergency Connection pump station
    • Vine Street WTP Improvements

Of course, we imagine a majority of the Work Orders executed for control systems will be of a
troubleshooting nature. In this regards there are many opportunities for remote access to allow
troubleshooting from PEI’s home offices should the city be interested.

We understand the small and large municipal budget constraints and can also offer value
engineered solution to reduce operation and energy inefficiencies.
