Ground Water

As climate change, increased industrial demand, and growing population levels continue to affect the amount of available of groundwater in America, both communities and industries have a vested interest in finding ways to use less water (to protect existing sources from overuse) and to return water back into the environment in a sustainable way in order to replenish supply.

Whether water is used to provide drinking water to localities, to irrigate crops, or as an integral part of various manufacturing processes, being smarter about the water we use – and using it sparingly – becomes easier once there’s a greater understanding about the water itself. With technology like KETOS, utilities and businesses can now measure usage to see where the most water is used, when, and for what purposes, in order to adjust services accordingly and to promote conservation. KETOS is also capable of monitoring for 25+ parameters and contaminants, allowing for effective water recycling programs that allow various businesses to reuse and repurpose water efficiently, whether it’s to internally recycle water (to cut costs and usage) or to safely return it to the environment.
