Temperature Monitoring Provides Additional Checks On Microbiological Conditions

Effective control of the microbiological environment in water distribution systems is one of the biggest keys to providing a healthy product. When it comes to processes for achieving this, the U.S. can take some lessons from Europe, where utilities are more likely to monitor temperature.

When the temperature is too high, organisms come to life and contaminate the water supply. By complying with temperature-based standards, European systems use significantly less chlorine.
