Case Study

City of Toronto

The city of Toronto chose an integrated access control and video solution from Software House and American Dynamics, both business units of Tyco Fire & Security, to secure its Water Filtration and Pumping Stations.

In the months following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, a number of governmental think tanks identified water filtration plants as being vulnerable to future strikes. In the city of Toronto, however, officials recognized the importance of protecting water systems before the attacks occurred.

For the past two years, the city has proactively worked to upgrade security at its key water filtration plant sites in an effort to protect the water supply for a city of seven million people. The last time the system was upgraded was in the late 1980s and the system was quickly becoming antiquated. Acknowledging that the water system was a critical infrastructure element that needed to be protected, city officials sought to upgrade the four major production/water treatment plants and the 33 pumping stations located throughout the city.

As part of a substantial re-building project, the city of Toronto chose an integrated access control and video solution from Software House and American Dynamics, both business units of Tyco Fire & Security, to secure its Water Filtration and Pumping Stations.
