For years, water takeaway, gathering and distribution have been a challenge for industrial companies. More than 80% of the industrial waste landing in rivers, streams and lakes is untreated. Compliance, sustainability and safety requirements have become even more stringent for environmental and public health and likely will continue to tighten in the coming years.
When developing and implementing a water quality monitoring and testing strategy, industrial water operators often face challenges including large, distributed water networks not suited for conventional water monitoring processes that rely on manual sampling and testing. This includes long turnaround times for test results and rush fees for expedited results.
