  • Water quality testing for drinking water services in remote areas

    In 1985, the University of Surrey in collaboration with Oxfam developed the Oxfam DelAgua Portable Water Quality Monitoring Test Kit. The Oxfam DelAgua kit enables field workers to test water quality in remote and isolated situations and in circumstances where there is no access to a water testing laboratory. Since its development in 1985, the water test kit has been used by all the major International NGO-s and other aid agencies in over 130 countries around the world.

    In 2006, The University of Surrey and other investors founded DelAgua Water Testing Limited to take over the management of the DelAgua organisation. Since then, various improvements have been made, including:

    • The upgrading of all kits
    • The upgrade of the design, manufacturing and distribution functions
    • R&D to produce a portable microbiological testing kit that provides quantitative results in less than 20 minutes.
    • The upgrade of existing services and the introduction of new services, including:
      • Free access to a water quality risk assessment software program on DWT`s website
      • Free access to a library of reference documents on DWT`s website

    In addition to distributing its own kits and consumables, DWT also offers a distribution service for other manufacturers` products. The most popular products are detailed on this website, but those not detailed can also be supplied - DWT is able to source in excess of 60,000 products from numerous manufacturers.

    DWT is committed to providing services and products to enable the provision of clean drinking water for everyone around the world.

    Assessing underground infrastructure for water industry

    America’s growth and development is dependent on reliable water provisions. Currently 3.9 trillion gallons of water are consumed in the United States per month, & the average American uses 176 gallons of water per day. Sources for drinking water are becoming less reliable as time passes. While nearly 70 percent of the world is covered by water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh with the rest being saline and ocean-based. Water is a precious resource, therefore needs to be conserved and used appropriately. In order to achieve this, water utilities must increase efficiency. Much of current water loss is blamed on outdated infrastructure since a large part of the water delivery systems in the United States dates back to years shortly after World War II. Water utilities require a thorough and cost-effective means of inspecting their assets. EnTech can help you meet your water sustainability and efficiency needs.

  • Pure drinking water solutions for high-security facilities

    In June 2002 an Al-Qaeda cell was captured in Rome just before they poisoned the water supply of the US Embassy. This event demonstrates the added risk that government buildings, military contractors, royal palaces and other high-security facilities can encounter. These facilities should not trust an outside company to deliver bottled water, but instead must stay in full control of their own water supply at all times. Our secure drinking water systems are in over 100 US Embassies around the world because they provide a consistent supply of fresh, distilled water, which is the highest level of protection against the full range of possible contaminants. We provide premium water distillers for these high-security facilities as well as small systems to protect the staff at home. We also provide risk assessment and water education services.

    Assessing underground infrastructure for wastewater industry

    Sewer management is crucial to the sustainability of life. It is necessary to properly discharge wastewater clinically and efficiently. Failure in wastewater systems will cause major implications in the future. The population is increasing, and larger volumes of wastewater put additional strain on existing sewer infrastructure. Each year there are nearly 75,000 such overflows in the United States, discharging approximately 900 billion gallons of untreated sewage into lakes, streams, and rivers. This affects our drinking water which, in turn, affects human habitation. The Clean Water Act of 1972 is a Federal Law that regulates and governs water pollution in the United States. It expects public utilities to properly treat and discharge water. Sewer owners need a reliable and cost-effective way of inspecting wastewater systems to make sure they are in compliance with federal regulations. EnTech improves the integrity of your wastewater collection systems.

  • Continuous Monitoring of Nitrates and Other Water Quality Parameters

    Nitrate is one of the most important parameters in assessing surface and ground water quality. Nitrates are naturally present in surface and ground waters in low concentrations, but are harmful to humans and livestock and cause aquatic ecosystem degradation in high concentrations. Nitrates enter the environment as human-induced pollution from a variety of sources, but the largest source is from agricultural fertilizer runoff . Other sources include wastewater treatment discharge, septic systems, and from pet waste. Nitrate is highly soluble in water and therefore readily leaches into water sources, whereas other human associated pollutants, such as phosphates and ammonia, are not transported as easily. This ability to be quickly transported into ground and natural waters such as drinking water wells, aquifers, reservoirs, lakes, and streams, coupled with its health and environmental implications make nitrate pollution and monitoring of major concern.
