Background
The Yolo County Central Landfill has several new facilities in construction and/or planned. These facilities include but are not limited to: pump stations, the in-vessel digester (liquid digester),and composting facility #1 (anaerobic composters). The new facilities have monitoring, control, and communication requirements including connection of these facilities to a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) control system. The Fiber Optic Installation will fulfill these requirements for the new facilities.
 
Existing facilities, such as the power plant, currently have radio communication and connections to the SCADA control system which is slow and does not always connect properly with the SCADA control. The Fiber Optic Installation will result in better operation, monitoring, control, and communication for the existing facilities.
 
It is anticipated that the Fiber Optic Installation will begin in winter of 2018 and will finish in spring of 2019.
