Measuring water quantity and quality in surface water (open channels, rivers, reservoirs, lakes, and estuaries) is one of the foundations of hydrological monitoring and has been a focus of OTT Hydromet since its first water current meters were designed in 1875.
WesTech offers a holistic approach to surface water treatment for potable use. Depending upon the raw water quality, the flow rate, and operational preferences, WesTech can provide conventional flow, combination treatment units, packaged systems, high-rate processes, or even customized solutions.
Surface water monitoring as an application covers many different environments and can require different equipment depending on the monitoring requirements. Possible environments include lakes, rivers and coastal waters where the monitoring may be focused on water quality or water level measurement. Aquaread offer instruments suitable for each of these environments and have a wide range of possibilities depending on the kind of data you wish to collect.
Easily and accurately assess the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of any aquatic system. From spot sampling to long-term remote monitoring, In-Situ has the right equipment for your surface water quality monitoring project.
Volumetric modeling of surface water bodies to include mapping of properties data into the volume requires the capabilities only found in EnterVol. When trying to assess the health of a lake, river or stream, volumetric data is essential. Once you apply the capabilities of EnterVol to this task, you’ll discover trends in your data that were previously hidden or suppressed by the limitations of 2D techniques.
The EU Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC WFD) is probably the most significant international legislative instrument in the water field. Water management policy as set out in the WFD is focused on surface water as it flows through river basins to the sea. An integrated approach has been introduced for matters concerning water quality and water quantity and the Directive establishes a framework for water management based on river basin districts. Linked to the WFD objectives, a series of milestones has to be...
Pollution Risk: Surface water encompasses storm water derived from hard standing areas, river water and reservoirs. All types of surface water are at risk from ingress of pollution and therefore need to be monitored. On-line continuous monitoring can identify and alarm pollution so corrective action can be taken
