    Once things get back to normal you and management should review the system maintenance program so that things like dirty water can be avoided. Granted, a hurricane can upset things, but this experience can make things more stable in the years to come.

    Sorry Dude our best advice is coulda, shoulda, woulda...Unfortunatley help in this section is more beneficial in "Proactive Mode" than "Reactive Mode"

    timebuilder is right to plan for stuff like this and mitigate as much as possible.

    Look, in my central plants I have at least the following programs:

    1. Training & Certification programs

    2. Water treatment contract (monthly service with training included. My guys perform weekly tests in-house.)

    3. Chiller maintenance contract (with required emergency response times built in)

    4. A back-up chiller. The main data center can be served by a water cooled chiller, air cooled chiller, or an incoming chilled water utility from another plant.

    5. Hurricane Preparedness Program. Includes supply lists, procedures, emergency contacts.

    6. Standard Operating Procedures. Basically inhouse instructions on what to do in different situations.

    7. Your operators should be doing Rounds and PMs to catch things early.

    I think its safe to say at least two of these programs in place could have greatly reduced your downtime. Talk to Management, get pricing, build & submit a budget. If you get any of these items pushed through, I guarantee everything you touch will turn to gold in that plant.

    With the likely possibility of more large hurricanes striking, and the likely possibility of dirty municipal water, is there any benefit to keeping a large quantity of treated water onsite for chiller use?

    ...or perhaps the ability to properly treat questionable municipal water.
