Water is vitally important to every aspect of life. From harboring millions of aquatic species to providing the essential resources to grow food and supply drinking water, the world’s network of oceans, lakes, rivers and tributaries serve multiple fundamental purposes.
And the cleanliness of a body of water can significantly impact the quality of life in the communities surrounding it and beyond. As such, ensuring proper water sample collection and analysis is key to determining the effects of potential contamination on receiving waters and their aquatic life.
In the interest of seeking compliance with federal and international regulations, as well as the desire to provide safe drinking water around the globe, engineers are regularly charged with monitoring municipal and industrial wastewater before it is discharged. Measuring water quality is not an easy task, especially as increasing environmental concerns have heightened the need for even greater diligence and tighter restrictions on water quality standards and protocols.
As environmental regulations continue to increase, so too does the need for accurate water sample collection and analysis for ensuring compliance. It is imperative that water sampling instruments collect samples that accurately represent the body of water being extracted for subsequent analysis.
