So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.. 1Co, 3:7
Flood Control Projects
Forbes, Missouri Levee District
During the summer of 2016 the Forbes Levee district installed six new Cat diesel
engines and pump stations. MWI provided the controls and automation of these
engines to help manage the man hours of operation. These six engines are capable
of starting, running and modulating their speed based on water level. They are
using the Murphy M2000 control panel and Keller Level Rat level sensing devices.
Forest City, Missouri
Detroit diesel converted to automatic control.
In late spring of 2016 the Forest City Drainage district contacted MWI about automating their diesel
engines to reduce the man hours of continually monitoring the speed of the pumping engines during
high water times. This manual Detroit engine was converted to automatic controls using the Murphy
M1000 series panel and depth sensors to allow the engine to auto start, run, shut down and have speed
control, without operator intervention. Some of the pictures are of their other sites that are pending.
Various pumping stations
Deisel and electric flood control stations accross Missouri help protect Landowner and
Farmer investments in crops and flood control. Remote monitoring and automatic
startup are available with both electric and diesel options.
