World Water Day 2018

World Water Day 2018

Event, Water Quality
#WorldWaterDay March 22, 2018 marks the 25th celebration of World Water Day! This year’s theme is “Nature for Water - exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century.” They are asking us to think about how we can reduce floods, droughts and water pollution. And their answer is simple, by using the solutions we already find in nature (nature -based solutions NBS) The main goal of this campaign is to raise awareness of NBS. "The central message is that NBS, such as planting trees to replenish forests, reconnecting rivers to floodplains, and restoring wetlands, is a sustainable and cost-effective way to help rebalance the water cycle, mitigate the effects of climate change and improve human health and livelihoods.” We can all make small contributions that…

How to Choose the Right Installation Method for Your Site

Guide, Water Quality
Download the Guide Now! Monitoring site conditions and the selected installation technique can negatively affect the operation and deployment of water quality sensors in long-term monitoring applications. So much so, that using the best possible installation method and best practices is pivotal for ensuring good data quality, minimizing unplanned site visits and protecting the instrument. In this guide, we review the suspended vertical, pipe and rail installation methods and compare installation techniques, key considerations, what to avoid, maintenance, costs, security and accessibility. Additionally, the guide includes an analysis of the pros/cons of each installation technique and installation best practices.

OTT Hydromet Helps Improve the Management of the Longford River in the UK

OTT Hydromet Helps Improve the Management of the Longford River in the UK

Video, Water Flow, Water Level, Water Quality
  VINCI Facilities in the UK, manages around 37,000 assets in the Royal Parks (such as fountains, statues and royal memorials for example in Kensington Gardens) and the water features are fed by the Longford River. If you have ever travelled in west London, there is every likelihood that you have crossed the Longford River – probably without realizing it. Built for King Charles I in 1638/39, the river travels from near Heathrow airport to feed the water features in Bushey Park and Hampton Court Palace. Maintenance and ongoing management of the Longford river are required as it helps protect industrial and residential areas, which the river passes through, from flooding and helps preserve the ecological status of the river. Checking the status of the Longford River used to be…

Fact Sheet: Turbidity Measurement – A Simple, Effective Indicator of Water Quality Change

Fact Sheet: Turbidity Measurement – A Simple, Effective Indicator of Water Quality Change

Fact Sheet, Surface Water, Water Quality
Download the Fact Sheet Now! The amount of dispersed suspended solids in natural water bodies is an important indicator of water quality. These solids that often include silt, clay, algae, organic matter, and other minute particles, obstruct the transmittance of light through the water and impart a qualitative characteristic known as turbidity. Turbidity is often closely correlated to climatological or surface water conditions and changes in turbidity are therefore indicators of changes in environmental conditions. “Turbidity data can be used as a surrogate measurement because it is strongly correlated with sediment, nutrients and bacteria, and can be measured in-stream on a continuous basis.” Topics Discussed in Fact Sheet: Turbidity Measurement Technologies Common Turbidimeter Design Criteria Variability Based on Measurement Method Download the Fact Sheet!
