The Paloma Irrigation and Drainage District (PIDD) has been in operation for over 100 years in Gila Bend, Arizona, providing essential irrigation and drainage services to 30,000 agriculturally diverse acres and nearly 100 homes. More than just irrigation, the PIDD safeguards the environment and upholds the community's water rights.

The PIDD faced several pressing challenges including high maintenance costs, limited monitoring and control, and inefficient manual operations, which culminated in the need for a strategic shift to an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) approach. This highlighted the need for a more modern, cost-effective, and data-driven approach to water management.

In this case study, read how PIDD bridged the gap between their operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) for seamless data flow and efficient management, propelling them into their SCADA expansion.
