Pump degradation has significant impacts on the operation of water treatment plants since pumps are widely used as basic facilities to supply and distribute water. The authors develop a method for quantifying pump performance to monitor pump degradation by using online monitoring data accumulated with a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. The developed method estimates the performance of each pump from the measured values at the confluence of pipes with the least-squares method and respective on-off signals. From the viewpoint of practicality, the usefulness of the developed method was evaluated.
