Why Monitor Water for Arsenic with KETOS
Arsenic naturally occurs in soil and rock and can easily dissolve into groundwater and wells. It can also enter water sources due to nearby human activity – for example, it can often be found in pesticides and enter water sources via soil runoff. For most, food and water are the primary sources of exposure. Arsenic is not only a known carcinogen but can also have diverse long and short-term health effects on individuals that digest more significant than average amounts, including cardiovascular and neurological effects and fatigue. According to the EPA, the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) of arsenic is 0.01 mg/L. Long-term exposure to drinking water with arsenic at levels above 10 ppb increases the likelihood of cancer. Therefore, monitoring for arsenic, especially in drinking water, is necessary to keep a community safe from contamination events.
Monitoring for arsenic is just the beginning. With KETOS, you can do so much more to monitor your water and help keep water sources contaminant-free.
The KETOS SHIELD remotely monitors dozens of water quality parameters. Which one do your water operators test most often?
KETOS is a fully integrated platform that combines hardware, software, connectivity, automated reporting, predictive analytics, and maintenance to automate water monitoring and testing. KETOS enables water operators to identify and solve mission-critical water efficiency and quality challenges in real-time, or before they happen through predictive algorithms, to ensure that water meets specific quality and safety standards.
