The water supply Bayerischer Wald (waldwasser) is a special purpose association with headquarters in lower Bavaria Deggendorf. Supplies Founded in November 1963 waldwasser today large parts of eastern Bavaria, approximately 10 percent of the area of ​​Bavaria, with a high quality drinking water. Approximately 200 communities lined up into the tree water community. waldwasser established itself as an inter-municipal administrative structure, the regional water supply from hand safely and is mainly for the sustainable use of the food no. 1, the drinking water. The Association sets since 2004. System-wide functions in monitoring, data collection and analysis on successful software solutions FlowChief. The private service area a clustered Process Control System for network operation in Deggendorf, Moos and Flanitz is operated so far. A hot-standby redundancy is in the drinking water treatment plant in Flanitz in use. 2014 took place the launch of a new waterworks with water softener at the site Moos.
Here is again set to process control of FlowChief. In addition to operation, modernization and expansion of its own infrastructure tree water has, since 2008, services related to the water supply. Since 2008 water woods allows the monitoring of buildings via a portal solution in a private cloud environment. Allowed to become more than 25 congregations with about 100 buildings. The connection is made with remote control technology of FlowChief.

Here come standard PLC components, which are often installed already in the plants used. About GPRS or DSL communicate this bi-directional and encoded with the portal. The central FlowChief process control system is consistent client capability, making them ideal for running multiple clients on one system. The end customer a complete package comprising native web visualization, alarms and escalation management and detailed reports about its investment purely as a rentable service is provided. The own 24/7 reporting office completes this service. The engineering of all systems is carried out by waldwasser itself. So now designed for all parts of the plant more than 300 process images from his own hand.
