Argentina river water quality to be improved with new trace metal monitors

Sponsored by



March 17, 2014 -- The South American federal republic of Argentina has received multiple trace metal monitors to monitor Hexavalent Chrome as part of the extensive Matanza-Riachuelo river clean-up scheme, which will restore the river to a site of natural beauty.

Provided by Modern Water plc (AIM: MWG), a provider of water technologies for the production of freshwater and monitoring of water quality, the installation of three on-line OVA7000 trace metal monitors represent a continued increase in demand within the country.

A further two OVA trace metal monitors are being used to monitor a new reverse osmosis (RO) water treatment plant recently installed to remove naturally-occurring arsenic from the Matanza-Riachuelo river. The OVA products were installed in December and continuously ensure that water quality meets World Health Organisation (WHO) standards.   

Trace metal monitoring is required across a variety of production facilities, including bottled water and brewing.
