Metropolitan Industries has released its Fall 2022 training seminars schedule, which includes our series of IEPA accredited trainings for water and wastewater operators and ILDPH accredited commercial plumbing application trainings for building maintenance professionals.
Managing the water infrastructure within a high rise building or campus community can be challenging enough during normal times. In the pandemic’s early days, unpresented changes to building occupancy and water use posed many unexpected consequences. The lessons learned since can help avoid a repeat of such consequences the next time a major disruption takes place.
Upgrading a city’s or town’s water-based system controls to the cloud may seem like a huge endeavor. Metropolitan helps ease the transition, as was the case for the Lake in the Hills Sanitary District. A single upgrade to our cloud-ready lift station controller provided the opportunity to experience the full benefits of cloud SCADA before committing to subsequent upgrades over the next year.
Metropolitan Industries’ Tim Merkel recently appeared on the “Empowering Industry Podcast.” In the 30 minute discussion, Tim summarized Metropolitan’s emphasis on custom-based solutions, our involvement with cloud SCADA, and our national expansion endeavors.
