"The City of Depoe Bay has worked with the Automation Group throughout the years. As everyone knows who has been through a big wastewater plant improvement project, you have a few bugs to workout during start up and operations. Though the Automation Group did not install the controls and instrumentation, they have been a continuous help to fix problems and brainstorm to make the City's plant run smoother, more control of process and staying within budget restraints. The City has now hired them to completely replace the control system and re-program the PLC at the city's water plant. I have found them easy to work with, and if we have a emergency they will make sure we are contacted and set up a service call."
