Facility Improves Operations with Vacuum Sampler

Located along the Spokane River in Washington State, the Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility is the wastewater treatment plant for the city of Spokane. To remedy a problem with water samplers, the plant installed Campbell Scientifics' stationary, indoor, composite vacuum sampler model CVS4200C. Since the installation, Riverside has not had a single missed or inaccurate volume sample. The facility now has 11 of the CVS4200C samplers on site.

ocated along the Spokane River in Washington State, the Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility is the wastewater treatment plant for the city of Spokane. Wastewater and stormwater are funneled through the facility, where the water is cleaned, filtered and treated using a SCADA system before exiting into the river.

For years, Riverside's Mike Goan had encountered problems with other water samplers. His staff had used various makes and models with the peristaltic pump system and frequently experienced missed or inaccurate samples.

Campbell Scientific samplers can be tied into any existing SCADA, PLC or RTU system.

As regulations and monitoring became more important and enforcement became a reality, the utility could not afford to have these types of issues.

Goan discovered Campbell Scientific's vacuum sampler. Riverside ordered and installed the company's stationary, indoor, composite sampler model CVS4200C, which they began using for sampling influent and effluent waters.
