Penneshaw CWMS

20 March 2017
Over the weekend there was a leakage from Penneshaw CWMS this was caused by issues associated with Pump Station 3. During the past week our CWMS operators has engaged with electricians, Pump suppliers and switchboard suppliers to resolve this situation. Additionally, he has been in constant contact with the supplier of the SCADA( telemetry) system in order to ensure that system operates unhindered. We have had a problem with a “soft starter” and an electrician was engaged last Wednesday to rectify same with parts ‘fast freighted’ to the island and installed. However, on Friday evening we did have an overflow at pump station 3 caused by a control system error not switching off pump station 2 and not sequentially pumping 3 to 4 , and 4 to the WWTO. This overflow left Pump Station 3 and ran through a neighbour's shed, causing offence and wetting ground stored products and equipment. We are assisting the neighbour with replacement of potting soil etc. and assisting in clean up. We brought our Environmental Health Officer to inspect and we are assured there are no health risks to the Community. We will continue to monitor the system and be alert for any other failures. Andrew Boardman (CEO) has contacted the Project Superintendent and Project Superintendent’s Representative ensuring they focus on preventing future issues
