Safeguarding Source Water: How Online Monitoring of Algae Leads to Data-Driven Decisions

Dr. Arash Zamyadi of the University of New South Wales, Australia discusses his most recent work deploying optical sensing technology to monitor for harmful algae blooms (HAB’s) in raw water. Dr. Arash shares his wealth of experience using this real-time data to help drive water treatment decisions and his research over the past several years that can make a difference at your facility.

In addition, he is joined by Kevin Simpson, of YSI’s Integrated Systems and Services Division. Kevin illustrates how YSI monitoring systems are used for early-warning detection of HAB’s in drinking water reservoirs. Moreover, he explores how you can gain peace of mind while improving operational efficiency, and maximize the effectiveness of your capital infrastructure.UNSW-Deployment.gif

Can you provide a list of Online Algae Monitoring with WTP project references in southern US states, e.g. Florida and Texas? Thanks


I'm interested in the infographic re algae
