Summary: Utilities are implementing expanded monitoring in the water distribution system as well as source water surveillance. Some of the monitoring is in response to increase regulation but most utilities understand that monitoring is a tremendous tool for controlling operation of the system. Frequent monitoring can identify and help correct problems before they become a nuisance or even chronic. Regular monitoring of pH, chlorine residual, turbidity, iron, copper, hardness, alkalinity, lead and many other tests are practical and easily completed with portable instrumentation.
Field sampling and analyses can be very useful and accurate if a few simple steps are followed including selection of the proper method and proper measurement tools. Tips for getting good measurements will be discussed including:
§Proper sampling methods and locations
§Selecting the proper measurement methods.
§Use of the proper measurement tools,
§Proper calibration and use of standards,
§Proper care of instruments and reagents.
§Limitations of field methods also will be discussed.
