Sensors are becoming an increasingly crucial component to actively
manage water quality assets, help improve process performance and cost
efficiency, and ensure safe and sustainable water for communities. Instrumentation for the monitoring of many
water quality parameters is commercially available, however, its implementation
remains largely limited to a small number of basic parameters and is confined
to key nodes in collection, treatment, and distribution systems, as well as
water and wastewater treatment processes. A key barrier to the realization of
the potential of online monitoring is the lack of publicly available
information on system performance and key drivers and barriers (technical,
economic, and social) to successful implementation.
This joint webcast will present an overview from a recently completed
study commissioned by the Global Water Research Coalition (GWRC) and managed by
WERF (Project No. SENG1C11) to identify and document the types, costs (capital
and operating), and real-world experiences with sensors in the global water and
wastewater industry. The information was compiled in an online compendium,
consisting of an online database which can be queried through a web-based
front-end, as well as a published final report.
It allows users to perform application and technology-oriented searches.
The compendium provides a guide to water utility managers and operators for
selecting and operating real-time water quality monitoring solutions, enabling
them to learn from the experience of other end users.
