Wastewater and Water Quality
Wastewater and Water Quality
Monitoring the removal of contaminants from water and wastewater is an essential step in remediation. That starts with understanding the composition of wastewater and involves constant wastewater testing. By being vigilant with wastewater remediation, communities and utilities can ensure they maintain compliance with local regulations while protecting their community and surrounding environment from contamination.
In recent years, environmental protection initiatives for critical natural resources have increased. Legislation, community involvement, and sustainability initiatives have all put effluent and wastewater quality in the spotlight. Water and wastewater fluctuations caused by climate change (including more significant and potentially more regular flooding events) also have utilities concerned about their wastewater management protocols. As a result, the need to strengthen wastewater infrastructure continues to be a concern in communities of all sizes.
Environmental concerns around contamination and spillage, and the rising costs related to cleanups, have industrial companies seeking solutions to help them better manage effluent and handle wastewater testing.
However, industrial operations are not the only vertical concerned with wastewater management. Municipalities are also interested in finding economical ways to handle wastewater – and are actively seeking ways to monitor, recycle, and monetize water resources to serve their constituents better. Both are looking for new water management solutions that embrace digital advancements. By leveraging IoT, automation, and machine learning, utilities and organizations can gain better, more reliable insights while handling wastewater testing. The latest technologies can help lower testing costs while making the collection of results more efficient and reliable.
Wastewater Quality Monitoring for Process Water
KETOS is arming both utilities and industrial companies with an interoperable solution that can monitor effluent and wastewater in real-time. KETOS arranges wastewater testing and allows operators to set their own threshold alerts for 30+ contaminants (including heavy metals) so that wastewater is effectively treated, reused, or released free of particles that can damage environments or sicken communities.
As a modular solution, KETOS can be positioned strategically at both entry and exit points or anywhere within an organization’s infrastructure to deliver timely information on wastewater insights so that companies can be sure treated water and wastewater are appropriately remediated and ready for whatever comes next.
With lab-accurate results in real-time and readings in ppb (parts per billion), KETOS is an EPA-compliant solution. Data and reports for wastewater are easily managed from the cloud for easy off-site access for water operators – helping ensure safety and compliance even in remote locations.
