CH2M HILL and the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) released a series of white papers to disseminate knowledge and industry best practices on developing comprehensive contamination warning systems, gained from the PWD Contamination Warning System (CWS) Demonstration Pilot Project. The pilot systems feature online water quality monitoring, optimized sampling and analysis, consumer complaint surveillance, enhanced security monitoring, and public health surveillance systems, along with consequence management. PWD and CH2M HILL produced the white papers as part of the project's final efforts to share as broadly as possible the knowledge and experience gained from the pilot with other water utilities.
