How Remote Water Quality Monitoring Improves Crisis Response

Source: Badger Meter

To protect themselves and their communities, water utilities must have a crisis response plan in place. However, a crisis response plan is only valuable if the right technologies are in place. Remote water quality monitoring is the key to mitigating the risk of contaminated source water or distributed water reaching consumers.

Effective crisis response first requires knowledge that something is wrong. While random grab samples can provide this information, they almost always do so far too late. In the worst cases, customers will notice something is wrong before the water utility, exacerbating the crisis.

With remote water quality monitoring, water utilities can get instant alerts when any of a wide range of contaminants is detected. When combined with analytics and trend monitoring software, utilities can go beyond known contaminants to get a comprehensive understanding of how their water composition changes and receive alerts when it exceeds normal parameters.
