About Our Company

Stanford Engineering and Automation aims to benefit small water system operators and managers in eastern Colorado. Instead of simply examining your electrical control needs and building upon that alone, our company takes a different approach. Our aim is to look at the whole picture, beginning with discussing your problems and practical needs. We then engineer control software that fits your needs. The next step is to design outward toward electrical and sensor interfaces later on.  This creates a robust system Once it comes time to construct your system we can even find the right contractors for your installation needs, and will work with them to bring the project to completion. 


But What Can You Do For Me?


Data is rapidly becoming more important in the water industry. You may need a PAC-based (What is a PAC?) data collection system that can record turbidity, chlorine or flow on a regular basis. Our company can do this and even help you store your data in the cloud or on site for use and analysis.  Perhaps you need to modify how your plant functions to reduce cost.  We helped a small system in Colorado do just that as well as reduce iron content in the distribution system, eliminated pump related water hammers and lowered electrical costs. See their project page here


Another water system wanted to integrate a PAC into their older relay logic controls for more flexible control over filter function and tank levels. The purpose of keeping the old relay logic was to have a backup control system, as requested, and to reduce cost. This is quite unusual, but we were quite willing to help the customer. Our PAC runs the entire plant, texts operators in the event of an emergency and displays information in the plant. See their project page here.  


One major project that our company is currently working on connects two separate water systems in the event of a catastrophic flood affecting a low-lying treatment facility. The PAC controller at the unaffected facility will take over treated water tank control for the damaged facility with a few clicks of a mouse. Thus avoiding prolonged loss of service to customers. This system can also serve as a backup water supply in the event of a major fire, in fact it has many uses. The concept page can be seen here.  


There are many other things that our company could help you with the needs of your water system. Contact us and tell us about your water system and what you need, we will be glad to help you.
