Top Secret Spy Hugo reporting.
The Lounge Kats gave me a mission, seeing how I don't mind traveling...I snuck into The Mommy's bag and went to work with her! The Kats have been curious as, well, cats to find out what she does all day.
Here I am...Mommy found me when she unpacked her fruit snax. She was SO suprised!
But she thought it was a great idea to show me around.
Here's where you sit to operate the water treatment plant. Do you see the two mugs? She's drinking on the job! Coffee and hot chocolate...hee hee!
Look who's on Mommy's PC.
I'm learning the computer system, it's called SCADA.
That's short for:
Supervisory Control And Data Aquisition.
Here's the laboratory for water ananlyis.
Do you see me?
I'm ready to work!
This lab is just for the Operators and they only do a few analyses; there's a whole building next door that performs all the complex stuff.
Mommy works at two different plants.
The view at this one is spectacular.
Way in the distance is The Strip, and further out the white speck is snow on Mount Charleston.
SCADA generated an alarm that an instrument wasn't performing correctly, so Mommy packed me and some portable lab stuff up and off we went.
Boy, I was glad for the lift; this place is BIG!
We had to go way down into the bowels of the plant...SIX flights of stairs. That's another reason Mommy likes working here, it's a good work out.
Here I am inspecting the analyzers! I'm right in the center of the photo.
To make the water extra safe to drink, it's ozonated as part of the treatment process.
A good way to think of it is creating lightening in a bottle. You know that smell after a thunderstorm? That's ozone!
I posed by one of the ozone generators for you to see.
Then Mommy took me around for a little tour.
This is a section of a 72" diameter pipe.
My mighty Hippo Weight held this check valve closed!
Now I'm ready to run the plant!
Kitties, Water Treatment is Fun.
Now all I need to do is go home and prepare a Full Report for the Lounge Kats...do you think they'll be suprised at what their Mommy does?
Stay tuned for tomorrow...
