  10. Improved Detection Key To Tackling Organic Contamination Issues
    4/9/2019

    For many applications, water should be free — or nearly free — of organic compounds. In drinking water, the impact is optimal taste, appearance, and safety. While the problem of organics finding their way into source water continues to grow, newer monitoring technology is making it easier for water treatment plants to rapidly detect the substances and apply the appropriate fix.
