A Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition (SCADA) system is an assemblage of computer and communications equipment that gathers, monitors, and analyzes data in real time. In modern wastewater treatment plants, operating systems such as SCADA systems control processes such as aeration, chemical feeds and sludge pumping. Online probes and sensors are integrated into a SCADA system to provide data-driven actions.  Better control and optimization using a SCADA system can potentially save wastewater treatment plants 10 to 20% in energy savings.
