Top 5 Challenges To Collecting Water Quality Data: How New Technology Is Tackling Big Issues
Agencies around the world understand the importance of protecting and improving water quality because of its direct impact on the environment and human health. However, collecting water quality data can expensive and resource intensive.
“Monitoring programs have a laundry list of needs---field experts, high-tech equipment, calibration labs, a fleet of boats and trucks, and data analysis, to name just a few---all working together in challenging environments. Looking forward, we need to find ways to be more efficient with the limited resources we have, and get the most benefit from the resources available,” says Tim Finegan, Product Manager for Xylem Inc’s YSI brand of water monitoring equipment.
In a complimentary web presentation, Tim Finegan and Brandon Smith, Assistant Product Manager, will examine new developments in technology that can help drive new operation models and efficiency improvements for water instrumentation users.
Join us for the webinar on Thursday, September 12, 2013 from 1:00-1:30 PM Eastern time (USA).
The webinar will examine the common problems faced by the monitoring community; why they are problems; and what solutions the instrumentation industry offers to counter the problems.
Typical frustrations include:
1. Ongoing repair & maintenance costs eat up my budget.
Why can’t field instruments last longer?
2. Uncertainty with future projects, legislation, & technology keep my program in flux.
Which instrument can I rely on for the next decade?
3. Incomplete or inaccurate data wastes my time.
I need data quality assurances.
4. Shrinking budgets compromise my program’s goal.
How can we be more efficient with what we have?
5. Training employees on instrumentation shouldn’t be rocket science.
How can the industry make this easier?
Who should attend?
Those dedicated to monitoring natural aquatic environments, such as rivers, lakes, wetlands, oceans, estuaries, and ground water.
