Water is Right presents “Water Scout” at the World Water Forum in Marseille
People need healthy water in order to live. In many regions of the world fresh water is available but it is polluted and unsafe to drink. The “Water Scout” is a small electronic device that allows the convenient and rapid measurement inorganic drinking water pollutants such as arsenic.
Determining all the relevant parameters for drinking water quality is normally a costly and time-consuming process, usually done by titration in a professional laboratory. With the “Water Scout” on the other hand, each parameters is measured in seconds electronically and highly accurately. The device requires no prior experience to handle, is very simple to use and yields reliable results. If the “Water Scout” is equipped with a GPS receiver, measurements can also be linked to each sampling site. This way, there cannot be accidental mix-ups in data recording or deliberate deception.
The Water is Right foundation plans to deploy both the “Water Scout” and the “Water Box” in their demonstration projects.
