Cobb is one of metropolitan Atlanta's most populated counties. Nearly one million people call it home. Millions more work, play and visit inside the borders of this suburban stretch of neighborhoods, businesses and parks. The infrastructure is among the area's best and getting better. The Cobb County Water System (CCWS) is a strong case in point. The CCWS is capable of handling three to five times more than the combined 80 million gallons of sewage and runoff it processed daily through four regional treatment plants. The aging SCADA system that monitored and managed the facilities, however, was due for a major upgrade, as the county was experiencing the costs that come with lost productivity and inefficiencies.
