Abstract:In June 2005, the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority will be receiving new equipment that will be used for water security monitoring in Washington, DC. This specialized equipment will include and online gas chromatograph (GC) for detecting potential VOC chemicals, a fish monitor for use in biodefense monitoring in a chloraminated system, and the use of HACH's new prototype monitoring system with algorithms for predicting potential contamination. The data from these monitors, in addition to routine distribution system monitoring, will be analyzed simultaneously to identify baseline conditions and alarm levels. This paper will discuss the latest project results along with operation and maintenance logistics.
