WEP has an instrumentation and electrical (I/E) group that supports many facilities in the Department. The group is divided into two similar geographically located sections. Each section is capable of maintaining all types of industrial electrical, instrumentation, pneumatic, and direct digital control equipment installed in WEP facilities. I/E supports seven wastewater treatment facilities and about 120 sewage transport facilities.

Its goal is to provide quality technical and maintenance support to WEP. I/E personnel specialize in electrical, instrumentation, electronic, and computer systems.

The I/E group maintains a variety of equipment, for example:

Motors (fractional to 1000 hp) Lighting equipment (indoor/outdoor)
Motor control centers Pumping station controls
Flowmeters Dissolved oxygen meters
Density meters HVAC systems
Programmable logic controllers Telephone communications system
SCADA systems Sewage sampling equipment
Audio/visual equipment Pure oxygen generation systems
Fire alarm systems Sprinkler systems
Hazardous space monitoring equipment Standby generators (fixed and portable)
