A study released by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), found that a mix of pollutants in California drinking water could cause an estimated 15,500 additional cases of cancer over the course of a lifetime. While concerns about water quality and safety continue to grow, it is important to note that a number of California utilities are already implementing real-time, online monitoring to determine the presence of water-borne contaminants of concern and ensure drinking water safety at all times. AMS is helping these utilities to not only identify THM and trace metal contaminant threats, but also to diagnose critical treatment system performance once a solution has been put in place.Read the news article.
The article “EU Regulation Changes Hones Market for Disinfection By-product Solutions,” featured in the March 2019 issue of Global Water Intelligence (GWI) explores how the proposed regulatory changes and growing global concerns over the effects of disinfection by-products (DBPs) have brought the need for effective DBPs management into focus. AMS CEO Rick Bacon participated in the discussion and stressed the importance of real-time monitoring of THM Formation Potential in the management of all treatment systems for THM remediation.

Aqua Metrology Systems has partnered with Foundation Instruments, Inc. to expand its offerings of online and real-time monitoring of trihalomethanes (THMs) with the addition of Foundation Instruments’ THM-Rapid Response (THM-RR) online benchtop analyzer. The benchtop analyzer reports individual and total THM concentrations in real‐time so that utilities can be more proactive in responding to water quality changes and managing carcinogenic disinfection by-products (DBP).Read the press release.
Medora Corporation (Medora) and Aqua Metrology Systems (AMS) have teamed up to deliver a complete trihalomethane (THM)compliance solution for water utilities to manage harmful disinfection byproducts (DBPs). Medora has announced that it will be using AMS’ online THM and THM Formation Potential analyzer, THM-100™, to provide real-time and predictive analytics data to design and operate its aeration system more efficiently, thereby saving utilities high treatment costs while ensuring compliance with regulatory standards.Read the news article.
Aqua Metrology Systems and University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst), have partnered to develop a robust online raw-water trihalomethanes (THMs) -precursor analyzer. On 23 January 2018 they received a commitment from Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) through its AmplifyMass program to cost share in the development and assessment of this new online THM-Precursor analyzer.Read the press release.
Aigües de Barcelona, the leading water utility in Spain, has received accreditation to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Standard for the use of Aqua Metrology Systems’ online THM-100™ analyzer to continuously monitor trihalomethanes (THMs) in their dinking water supply network servicing 3,000,000 million inhabitants across metropolitan Barcelona. In addition to providing the utility with contract compliance and process optimization data, THM readings can now be used to submit regulatory compliance data.
