Water treatment operators balance their time between a wide range of responsibilities. On any given day they could be preparing chemicals, performing maintenance and miscellaneous repairs, reviewing data, collecting samples, and running a variety of tests. In balancing these competing demands, some important duties might not get the time required to truly maximize benefits.
One example of this is microbial monitoring. The more you can test, the better you can understand what’s happening. Frequent testing gives you the tools to make informed decisions and mitigate risk by taking corrective action before it’s too late.
