Improving Water Quality for the Poor - Sensor technology for rapidly assessing water quality risks for vulnerable users

"Improving Water Quality for the Poor - Sensor technology for rapidly assessing water quality risks for vulnerable users (TRIGR)

Access to safe groundwater supplies underpins the resilience of the global poor to livelihood and health risks. Poor communities are often reliant on shallow groundwater sources highly vulnerable to micro-biological contamination. The programme will develop the application of a novel fluorescence sensor to predict the presence and level of faecal contamination in groundwater supplies within seconds. A robust assessment of this new technology will be undertaken as part of a national survey of 200 representative water points in Malawi.

CTG’s new CDOM monitoring systems will be launched at AquaTech in Amsterdam (3-6 Nov). Come and see them on Stand No 07.255

CTG’s new CDOM-Station and CDOM-Station Pro systems are being launched at AquaTech, Amsterdam (3-6 November 2015).

CTG’s new CDOM-Station and CDOM-Station Pro systems are being launched at AquaTech, Amsterdam (3-6 Nov 2015). These systems allow utility operation managers, process scientists and engineers to assess real-time levels of coloured dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in water systems. This is achieved by detecting UV CDOM fluorescence, which has been shown to correlate with organic levels in a wide variety of water environments, providing significantly enhanced improvements in sensitivity over conventional absorbance methods. Applications for these new systems include managing disinfection by-product formation potential, assessing organic load through water treatment works, filter management, coagulation control plus monitoring THM and HAA pre-cursors. CTG's This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it will be on hand on Stand No 07.255 to provide full information on these new systems.
