Veolia & AMS Instrumentation Validated by Battelle

In 2014 the Air Force was concerned about possible Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) violations pertaining to total coliform and disinfection by-products at a number of their facilities. On behalf of the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) Battelle conducted a demonstration and validation of real time water quality monitoring technologies manufactured by Veolia and Aqua Metrology Systems to develop a comprehensive water monitoring approach to proactively address concerns pertaining to potential SDWA violations. Battelle operated the technologies from May 2015 through August 2016, the instruments proved successful and could be transitioned to broader Air Force use. An overview of the demonstration and validation project has been compiled into a presentation.
