EUROPE, AUG 6, 2018 -- A novel microbial detection module will help water distribution networks speed up the process of contamination measuring. This will lead to significant savings with real-time critical data.
A team of researchers backed by the EU-funded WaterSpy project is developing a device for pervasive and online monitoring of tap water. It's a portable laser-based water quality analyser that can be utilised at critical points on water distribution networks. It can provide a safety reading in a few hours rather than days, helping water utilities, public authorities and regulators save time and resources. The prototype is ready and the team will test it in two sites in Genova, at the Prato Water treatment plant and the entry point of the Genova water distribution network. Read more at Phys
