Water Quality Monitoring

Concerns about water quality and regulations imposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have generated greater interest in measurement of water quality. It is a very complex subject, in part because there are so many variables: the local geology and ecosystem; human uses such a sewage dispersion, industrial pollution, and overall use of water.

Most measurements such as conductivity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and turbidity can be made on-site in direct contact with the water source in question. More complex measurements that must be made in a lab setting require a water sample to be collected, preserved, and analyzed at another location.

HSE water quality stations offer unattended monitoring systems with real-time telemetry.
