Lead contamination in drinking water presents a serious threat to human health. While utilities monitor for lead by sampling infrequently only a small number of domestic points of use, these traditional lead monitoring programs lack the ability to measure the presence of all forms of lead; capture unpredictable changes in water quality that result in lead corrosion; and report the contamination risk before the water is delivered to the customer. MetalGuard™ Lead Alert!™ from AMS is designed to offer communities real-time, continuous and dynamic water quality assessment of the presence of total lead in buildings or zones exposed to events that are the cause of acute lead contamination to reduce the risk of exposure.Read the full article.

AMS details results from a technology demonstration of the SafeGuard™ H2O intelligent Cr(VI) treatment system at Los Banos, Calif. The study demonstrated the system’s ability to effectively and affordably convert Cr(VI) into Cr(III) to non-detect level in unchlorinated well water.Read the press release.
Rick Bacon, CEO of Aqua Metrology Systems, discussed the value of real-time, high-frequency metals monitoring during the Sensileau webinar in January 2020, “Metals Monitoring in Water.” The presentation focused on the AMS MetalGuard™ multi-stream online trace metal analyzer, which provides automated, unattended measurement of trace metal contaminants such as Arsenic, Chromium-6, Lead, Selenium and more across municipal and industrial sectors.View the presentation.
Watch the latest episode of AMS Talks featuring Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, who discusses AMS’ pilot demonstration of its SafeGuard™ H2O Hexavalent Chromium [Cr (VI)] remediation system at the City of Los Banos, Calif. The goal of the pilot is to demonstrate how SafeGuard H2O can effectively and affordably treat Cr(VI) down to non-detect levels and how the system can be fully controlled, monitored and optimized remotely without the presence of personnel on site.Watch the video.
AMS announces the pilot demonstration of its SafeGuard™ H2O Hexavalent Chromium [Cr (VI)] remediation system at the City of Los Banos, Calif. The pilot is being conducted in one of the city’s wells which has elevated Cr(VI) levels of 40 ppb and extremely challenging water quality due to the presence of uranium, high conductivity and hardness.Read the press release.
AMS’ SafeGuard™ H2O, an innovative in-situ stannous (Sn2+) generator, harnesses the power of tin to address trace metal contaminants, such as hexavalent chromium and more. Traditional treatment systems are expensive and associated with high capital and operating costs. SafeGuard H2O is the first truly intelligent trace metal remediation system that demonstrates how innovation can reduce the costs of drinking and wastewater treatment, support tighter regulatory standards for contaminants of concern and widen access to safe drinking water for all.Watch the video.
MetalGuard™ Lead Alert!™ — a novel automated and unattended real-time lead corrosion risk management system for monitoring the risk of exposure to lead contamination. MetalGuard Lead Alert! is specifically designed to alert utilities and consumers of an increased risk of lead contamination, before lead contamination occurs and impacts consumers and their health, by providing high frequency, timely and accurate predictive data on dissolved and total lead in water samples.Read the brochure.
