City utility sites have always been magnets for loitering and criminal nuisance behavior. Large tanks and sheds can hide individuals who wait for the absence of city personnel. Onsite security plans should include day- and night-time surveillance coverage of equipment installations, fence lines, and entrances.
Theft and Loss Mitigation
Metal theft and property damage can be substantial within local and remote municipal utility properties. It’s important that high-definition cameras are placed in egress/ingress locations to capture any criminal behavior. Thermal cameras focused on key assets, can trigger alerts 24/7, so that response plans can be activated.
SCADA and related communication network equipment is vital to data communications. Decision support systems are reliant on these data networks. Various security methods, including redundancy, can be employed to make sure you are covered during critical events.
