Upgrades included the hardware and software to fully automate the water treatment process at the plant as well as the overall design and function of the room.

Engineers designed the project with complete modernization in mind. User friendliness and operational functionality were critical considerations.

Cocoa completed construction of the Claude H. Dyal Water Treatment Plant in 1970. It began operation in November 1970. The last time the control room was upgraded was when the plant was modified and expanded to treat surface water in 1999.

The original control room technology was based around manual hard switching and hardwire connections. It was originally used to control ground water treatment and the ground water supply system only.

After nearly 45 years of expansion and development the Main Console and Operations now provides control to ground water treatment, surface water treatment, Wewahootee pre-treatment, 48 well sites, Taylor Creek Pump Station, four remote booster and storage stations and will collect data from five whole sale and water quality monitoring stations.
