Reduce Project and Maintenance Costs
Professionals in the water/wastewater industry are faced with tightening water quality standards, rising operating costs, and increased government regulations. By collaborating with manufacturing partners, we give you access to new products and technologies with best-in-class process control solutions and safety. Our water and wastewater solutions help your operation maximize productivity, reduce the cost of implementation, minimize lifecycle costs, and improve the longevity of your equipment.
How We Partner With Your Operation:
City and County of San Francisco Wastewater Group
We partner with the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) Wastewater group to perform annual preventative maintenance on every piece of Hetch Hetchy water pumping equipment at their facility. This allows the equipment in all of their pumping stations to remain viable and reduce downtime due to equipment failure. Ongoing maintenance saves the City and County of San Francisco money in the long run and helps prevent catastrophic failure that would hurt the city infrastructure.

Pump Station Controller
The Rockwell Automation Pump Station Controller pre-engineered package solution utilizes standard products with programmable logic controller (PLC) code and Human-Machine Interface (HMI) screens. No programming is required to operate or configure the controller. Screen selections give you the ability to choose between pump-down, pump-up, or pressure follower control.
Municipal Wastewater Treatment
Wastewater Treatment Plant Solutions
We want to help your wastewater treatment operation protect water quality and reduce overall energy consumption. Several processes used in wastewater treatment require significant amounts of energy, including:
- Taking carbon dioxide (CO2) generated from sludge processing and turning it into methane gas to fuel other processes in the facility
- Using aeration basin blowers to dissolve oxygen and encourage microorganism growth
These processes benefit from solutions that monitor and control energy use.
Integrated control, visualization systems, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems for wastewater treatment reduce design time and enhance process control. Get better preventative maintenance and access to process data using advanced networking and diagnostic capabilities. At Buckles-Smith, we want to be your partner in making this happen.
Energy Efficiency in Operations
Energy is necessary for each step of the treatment process, running every day to keep pumps, motors, and other equipment operational. Buckles-Smith helps you conduct no-risk energy audits to improve energy efficiency through key adjustments.
These essential changes help you bring down plant energy bills and limit the environmental impact of plant activities. Savings from these decisions can be placed into investments and other projects. Whether it's energy-efficient power and controls, Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and lighting controls, or geothermal energy, Buckles-Smith helps you decrease your energy footprint.
