A data collection project conducted by the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) using “WISKI,” a solution created by KISTERS North America, has been named one of the top water projects of 2013 by Water & Wastes Digest. The project was designed to replace a legacy process data collection system at OCWA.

OCWA had required a proof of concept, in the form of a pilot project, to integrate streaming SCADA data (20,000 tags daily), mobile devices and lab data—as well as to provide a configuration for site, station, parameter and time series relationships to manage all incoming data.
