Monitoring chemicals dissolved in water can give an indication of the condition of the rest of the surrounding environment as well. Because VOCs evaporate so quickly, they can transfer easily from the water to the air. Water quality is closely linked with air quality, and monitoring both is essential to environmental safety and protection. When more chemicals are introduced into the environment, it becomes increasingly likely that they will impact water quality and, as a result, health quality. A quick response to water quality issues is needed to ensure safety and security for communities.
Clean water is a necessity. Monitoring the water on-site with immediate results makes it possible to detect the presence of small concentrations of VOCs before they become a larger problem. Water monitoring can be implemented at drinking water distribution sites, wastewater treatment facilities, groundwater remediation projects, or other locations to ensure acceptable water quality.
The NovaTest W1000 provides the continuous online monitoring solutions needed for effective water monitoring. The W1000 can sample and analyze VOCs in water autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. Continuous, real-time analysis provides immediate feedback, making it possible to quickly address any water quality issues to protect the health and safety of surrounding communities. The NovaTest P300 can also be used along with a purge and trap system to sample and analyze VOCs in water. The P300 can be easily transported to enable on-site sampling at any location.
