View real-time water quality live at WWEM 2018

Visitors to the Meteor Communications stand (No.10) at WWEM 2018 will be able to view the UK's largest integrated, real-time water quality data network, and interact with water quality, flow, level and weather data from selected rivers across the UK.

The remote sites from which this data is collected form part of the ESNET (Environmental Sensor NETwork) created by Meteor Communications for customers such as the Environment Agency, utilities, consultants and academia. Delivering complete managed monitoring services, Meteor's innovative business model provides high resolution, real-time water quality monitoring, available on a lease or purchase basis.

WWEM meteorRemote StationThe company's portable and kiosk-based multiparameter monitoring systems will be on display, offering WWEM visitors the opportunity to explore the ESNET platform. Typical systems measure Ammonium, pH, EC, temperature, DO and turbidity, with options for several other parameters using industry leading sensors, including Xylem sondes and OTT nutrient monitors.

"We already have over 400 stations operating in the UK, so the products are well proven," says MD Matt Dibbs. "Our innovative technologies are suitable for catchment or small final effluent applications, and their transportability and simplicity makes them ideal for short-term investigations, or for sensitive locations where alarm capability is required."

Matt Dibbs will deliver a presentation entitled: Remote monitoring of final effluent using multiparameter sondes at 10:40am at the WWEM SWIG Conference - Day 2 (22nd Nov.) He will also deliver a workshop on remote water quality monitoring in Room 5 at 2:30pm on Day 1.

The Meteor Communications stand will also feature the company's remote, low-power, rugged cameras which provide visualisation of key assets such as construction sites, flood gates, weirs, flumes, screens, grills etc.
